Mrs Foucault's Pendulum

Belgium, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Fiction)

Director: Jean Marc Vervoort

A strictly metered repressive regime regulates the Foucault household. Disruptions are not wel­come. Unfortunately for the domineering Mrs F the swing of things does not accommodate two small boys, revenge, and one tram. Time literally goes off the rails in this stylised, synchronised slice of oddbeat life.
