Synopsis

Les images de la maternité naissent dans les clichés (Communion! Souffrance! Délivrance!), vivent de clichés (Main sur un front fiévreux! Claque en arrière de la tête!) et meurent sur un cliché (Elle ne m’a jamais dit qu’elle m’aimait!). Pour les contourner, il faut avancer prudemment, faire confiance aux histoires qui émergent et espérer qu’elles forment, au bout du compte, un tout cohérent. Fanny Britt se risque ici à une sorte de plaidoyer pour une maternité ambigüe, à coups de souvenirs, de récits, de conversations avec des mères et des non-mères, d’impressions de lecture et de sagesse trouvée dans les paroles de chansons.
