Marie and I

Screenplay for a Feature Film

David is acting in the last scene of one of his own plays. It isn’t exactly a success: the hall is virtually empty. Nevertheless, a spectator applauds. Marie. It’s love at first sight. Well in fact, only for Marie. David is too preoccupied with writing a new film script for a comedy, in which the main character, Georges, is a Don Juan. But David begins to feel that his main character is escaping him: Georges increasingly dismisses his role as a heartbreaker. He wants to lend his life new meaning. At the same time, David notices that Marie is escaping him too: she simply disappears. So David starts to look after her. Yet without any success. Discouraged and sad, he goes to watch a retrospective of black & white films at the cinema. There, he meets face to face with…Georges, his main character! Georges complains to his creator that he is missing the female company and that he wants to experience a real love story. If David helps Georges, then possibly Georges could also help David to find Marie?
