Madame − that’s Caroline. An elder­ly lady, who imme­dia­te­ly makes it clear that the­re is more to her than just a coquet­tish hair­style and bour­geois man­ners. The focal point of the movie is the rela­ti­onship with her grand­son, film­ma­ker Stéphane Riethauser. Madame is a dou­ble self-por­trait, in which the matri­arch and her gay grand­son con­fi­de in each other. With humor but in a pro­found man­ner and with sub­ver­si­ve force, the film decon­s­tructs gen­der ste­reo­ty­pes and illus­tra­tes the saga of a midd­le-class fami­ly with archi­ve pictures.
