1. Find a reassuring explanation for a bout of sleeplessness: the eating of white turnips; 2. Observe the mechanisms of passion; 3. Escape inadequate ideas. It’s the story of a breakup.

Our take

The authenticity of Salomé Richard’s performances is one of the main reasons for the extraordinary emotional reach of this triptych. White Turnips sees Ana trapped in a fading relationship, gradually coming to terms with the idea of letting go. A delicate and truthful chronicle of a death foretold.
