On his 30th birthday, Fassaert receives a mysterious invitation from his 95-year-old grandmother Marianne to come visit her in South Africa. She was a femme fatale who went through countless men, a famous model in the 1950s, and a mother that put her two sons into a children’s home.

I wasn't expecting this film to be so captivating. Marianne is a very interesting, albeit somewhat bizarre character, and her stories and loose ends serve as an illustration about memory and the concept of truth. You can never really know everything about a person, and that's what's so fascinating about this film.
