The film project

The film is a recreation of Victoria, a work originally created in 1999 for the stage, by Dulcinea Langfelder, pioneer of interdisciplinary art. Victoria has toured in more than 15 countries, in 8 languages, for over 20 years! In creating the show, Dulcinea Langfelder wanted to find a way to talk about old age, loss of autonomy… and death, that would be neither morbid, frightening, nor depressing.

For years, Dulcinea has been asked to produce a film version of the show. Now it will be immortalized for generations to come as part of  Quebec’s artistic heritage. 



Having lost her memory, 90-year-old Victoria lives intensely a present intermingled with memories and imagination, humour and fantasy.


Victoria has lost her memory. In her world, time does not exist; memories are as real as the present. A shadow of herself, Victoria is like a stage performer who’s forgotten her role; a kind of puppet, adapting herself to comic, dramatic and poetic situations as they present themselves. The orderly that takes care of her seems at times to be a friend, an adversary, her father, son, brother, lover… while her wheelchair becomes her rocking chair, her prison, her tango partner and even a flying chariot.
