Sur la pointe du coeur
Through the walls of the heart

Anne Lévy-Morelle, Belgium, 2001, 35 mm, 90 minutes

What is there in common between
A medieval town,
Human life
And a hospital?

There are three enclosed spaces, of a certain size, into which one enters one day and from which one leaves after a certain time. That include discreet gates, hidden passages, stories, and also lessons to learn.

On the tip of the heart is an epic poem about birth and death, the main character of which is the Saint-Pierre Hospital, in the heart of Brussels.
It is a place of travel, a still and yet very distant journey.
The destination bears several names: the other, the elsewhere, the mystery, the dragon, the heart.
It also boils down to this ageless quest:

How to cross the walls?
