SYNOPSIS

Charlotte Gainsbourg started to look at her mother Jane Birkin in a way she never did. They opened themselves up to one another and created a space where a mother-daughter relationship could unfold.

PROGRAM NOTE

Charlotte and Jane are daughter and mother, yet they do not know much about each other. This distance that can be felt in their conversations. Jane defines the relationship between the two as a “sisterhood.” This shows that Jane does not see Charlotte only as her child, and Charlotte does not treat Jane only as her mother. Moreover, it makes us question whether the relationship between mother and child needs to be an intersacrificial one of endless maternal love and unconditional trust for the mother.
As the title of the film is Jane “by” Charlotte, Charlotte would not know Jane as well as Jane does, but Jane cannot see the Jane that Charlotte sees. The film warns us that it is not possible to know everything about Jane through this film alone, that the depth of one person’s abyss is too deep. Therefore, the movie (or Charlotte) experiences the history of the space where Jane stayed for a long time. [Nandule, HAEPARI]
