Jean-Marie Buchet

After studying film at La Cambre, Jean-Marie Buchet (Belgium, 1938) directed several short films before finishing his first feature-length film in 1974, La fugue de Suzanne. He regularly collaborated with filmmakers such as Patrick Van Antwerpen, Boris Lehman and Roland Lethem, and he participated in films by Jan Decorte as an actor, editor and sound engineer. Between 1996 and 2009 he contributed to the film magazine Grand Angle. Buchet also worked at the Royal Belgian Film Archive and taught at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.

Suzanne has had enough of her boyfriend Albert. The drama unfolds in fifteen tableaux, in which she goes over to Albert’s friend Emile. Still, these romantic worries go hand in hand with insatiable boredom.
