Director : Alain Cavalier | France | 2009 | Colour | 85min

One of France's most respected filmmakers, Alain Cavalier furthers his exploration into first-person cinema that was last seen in the sublime Le filmeur (30th HKIFF). With a simple video camera, Cavalier has, in essence, made a memorial to his wife, who was lost to a car accident some 30-odd years ago. Purposefully lo-fi yet intensely personal and poignant, this seemingly simple film unearths a rich core of emotions. A loving tribute as well as a document of a man grapping with his own mortality, Irène invites viewers to share in the enigma of a woman who is long gone.
