Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

Winner of the Sundance Channel Audience Award 2016.

Read the screenplay that inspired the short film Avalon by Vincenzo De Jonghe as well as the segment Next to Her in the anthology feature film Follow: Love, Life, Ghent.

For more than two years, the 84-year-old Maurice has been taking care of his terminally ill wife, Yvonne. Because of the stress and strain of caring for someone in need of constant supervision, the line between nurturing and torturing is easily crossed. Is the elderly couple still capable of uncovering the tenderness of their bond?

"Next To Her tackles the hard question many of us have to face one day: can you keep loving a lover whose mind has drifted off forever? A heartrending and heartfelt blueprint for a wonderful film." - Fedrik de beul, director of August 1914 and Kong At The Seaside

Themes: old age, dementia, elderly love, caregiver, eldercare, relationships, cats, pets

5.0 van 5 sterren Faded memories of the past 28 augustus 2015
door J. Chambers - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
Written as a screenplay, "Next to Her" is a poignant glimpse into the life of an elderly couple, Maurice and Yvonne. Yvonne is deep into dementia and is institutionalized. The faithful Maurice visits her daily to share lunch with her, but Yvonne is largely unresponsive and uncooperative, which frustrates Maurice as he tries to feed her. In the end, the only common memory they still shared was one of a beloved cat that died years earlier.

It's a simple, moving story that undoubtedly plays out in real life millions of times every day as aging people deal with the issue of caring for a loved one whose mind has gone, taking with it the memories and feelings that two people once had for each other.

5.0 van 5 sterren She lives in the past where she finds peace and love in the experience of her already deceased Turkish Van ... 30 september 2015

When director Vincenzo De Jonghe sent me the screenplay of Next to Her
by Vanessa Morgan and asked if I wanted to play Maurice, I had no
doubts.
I have to admit that I had never heard of Vanessa Morgan, but the
story immediately spoke to me. The caring and loving Maurice who, day
in day out, takes care of his hospitalized demented wife Yvonne. The
lunch he prepares for her and gives her everyday is his only means to
stay in contact. More and more, however, he is faced with his own
powerlessness and frustration. At all costs, Maurice wants Yvonne in
the here and now. Unfortunately, she doesn't recognize him anymore.
She lives in the past where she finds peace and love in the experience
of her already deceased Turkish Van cat 'Avalon'. For Maurice, it
becomes quite a quest to fill the gap between 'his present' and 'her
and their past'. A quest to see, even very briefly, a flash of
recognition in Yvonne's eyes and to feel connected to her once more.
A beautiful, intriguing and above all very warm and loving story.. ...
The two shooting days in the region of Ghent were just super. A
director who knew exactly what he wanted, who respected the
screenplay, and who directed his cast and crew with a lot of patience
and attention to detail. A crew that gave the words 'cooperation' and
'friendship' paramount importance. The two actresses - Anna-Maria De
Schepper as the beautiful Yvonne and Annelies De Nil as the nurse -
gave me an incredible breeding ground for filling in my own character.
This short film, which was given the new title 'Avalon', will premiere
on October 23 in the Sphinx Cinema at Film Fest Ghent. There, it will
be screened together with nine other short films under the title
'Follow: Love, Life, Ghent'.

A quick easy read, but fascinating from the get go. It alternately broke my heart, and mended it again. (Cheesy, right? But so true.)

Loved it. Truly.

5.0 van 5 sterren ‘Avalon... Avalon... Avalon...’ 10 augustus 2015
door Grady Harp - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Author/screenwriter Vanessa Morgan lives in Belgium and is best known for her terrifying mysteries - some of which have become movies - but she is also a very sensitive writer about animals, and cats in particular (witness, AVALON: A HEART WARMING TRUE CAT STORY). In this story we are given the privilege of reading the screenplay for her film. This is a memoir, and more. For anyone who has had a pet or pets as integral parts of their lives Vanessa's story will be particularly meaningful. But somehow because of her writing skills she makes this a story more encompassing than a person/pet tale. This is an expression of love, well spelled. In her acknowledgments she states, ‘In loving memory of my grandfather, Jozef Janssens, and my cat, Avalon, who both left this world in July 2013.’

The story is brief but intensely well told. Maurice is 84 and lives alone now that his wife Yvonne is hospitalized. Each day he cooks for her, places the pureed food in Tupperware, and carries the lunch/dinner in a plastic bag to the hospital. Yvonne resists eating, preferring to talk to her deceased cat Avalon whose picture sits on her bed stand ‘next to her’. Maurice is patient but persistent and a nurse enters to help. This is repeated daily until one day Yvonne panics with her need to go to the bathroom – a struggle that ends with a mess. Maurice’s nerves show tension but the nurse enters and reassures Yvonne that Avalon is on her bed waiting for her. Maurice uses the moment of quiet to eat his own lunch, but seeing the mirage of Avalon joining Yvonne on her bed and Yvonne’s happiness at having Avalon near her, Maurice joins the vision and the couple share loving looks and tenderness as they caress Avalon.

The film is said to be a short feature and it will work very well, but while it is short in duration, it is long in after effect. This is a delicate and very lovely love story – a reminder that aging does not steal memories or life long emotions. Grady Harp, August 15

5.0 van 5 sterren dynamics between an elderly couple 10 oktober 2015
door Sharif - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Yvonne keeps talking about her deceased cat as if he were in the room with her. This irritates her husband, Maurice. Yvonne is bedridden and ill and he’s doing her best to take care of her, but concern turns into abuse when Maurice is frustrated with her illness and attachment to the cat. Will there be a turnaround in this situation? This was an interesting story about an elderly couple dealing with some heavy issues.
