Berlinale Women Directors: Meet Sophie Fillieres

"I wanted to write about a couple being two, about how it is hard to last under the burden of everyday life, about falling out of love. I wanted to write about letting go of everything and saying no to a suffocating life, to insinuations and misunderstandings, which are an everyday form of violence."
