Synopsis

Young and pretty Mary believes she’s responsible for the death of her little daughter and became a self-pleasure addict to keep her mind from reliving the terrible event. Her aloof husband – an unemployed trader – suggests using her addiction to become a money earning cam-girl. At first horrified by what she considers prostitution, Mary soon accepts and confronts people who contribute to destroy her and others who help rebuilding herself.

Marie Delacroix
MARY DELACROIX, 29, bright and pretty, has studied at EDHEC Business School in Roubaix, where she met her husband Leonard. She’s unable to recover from the accidental death of Emily, her 4 year daughter, for which she feels responsible. To try forgetting, even a few moments a day, the terrible event she constantly relives, Mary developed a peculiar sexual addiction. Leo being unemployed, it is she who, with her parents help, provides to the couple’s financial needs.

Laid off, he now tries to find work in Switzerland where wages are higher than those in France. Without really showing it, he is nevertheless also very much affected by Emily’s death. And he makes Mary understand it in his own cruel way.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

What I want to say with The Infinite Moment can be summed up in one sentence: one must first solve the problems within oneself before considering a healthy relationship in a couple and/or with others.

Mary’s problem is her inability to mourn her child because of her enormous guilt. She finds refuge in compulsive masturbation to forget – even for short moments – the moment of the fatal accident. But when her husband asks her to become a camgirl, her addiction soon disgusts her.

The route is that of a character from a fairy tale who must overcome obstacles before reaching her goal, which, here, is to find peace with herself. In The Infinite Moment these barriers are taken from female sexuality that serve as metaphors to different representations of women today (and every role women are asked to take): The girl friend/wife – the mother – the whore.

How can women cope today with these different images society and media very often convey of themselves? is also one of the questions I wish to raise in The Infinite Moment.
