The image choosen for the poster.

Il y a de la vie après 70 ans: Poster of the documentary film 16'

Il y a de la vie après 70 ans: Poster of the documentary film 16': Le film va être montré en public, la première fois, le 5 juillet - quelques jours avant mon anniversaire qui sera mon première pas vers les... My grandson wrote an essay on the comedian he prefers, his gram. Between many, he tells, that my Hungarian pronunciation sometimes misunderstood, makes laugh even more. Another proof of the advantage of being different.

By Irina Fernandez, documentary film

A short portrait of Julie Kertesz, an 80-year-old woman who decided, in her late 70s, to take up stand-up comedy. Originally from Hungary and a French citizen, Julie Kertesz moved to London 5 years ago.

Julie’s stand-ups not only defy preconceived ideas about ageing but also communicate the power of creativity as a means to deal with the past, present and future. Her journey became a path of self-discovery, empowerment and self-realisation. The 5 July, she will be there, too.

A bunch or one?

More and more I find analogies between photographies and public speaking.

I just took a few photos of the flowers on my table this morning, and read a prepared speech someone will deliver tomorrow.

Too much information and not enough detail.

Then I took a photo with focus only on one of the margaritas from the vase, suddenly it had lots of information in it and spoke more to me.

Same for a story or a speech.
Taking out does not mean less expressive, it leads to easier to remember.

Hands in underground

Which is more interesting?

Which you would take more time to look at?

the young guy hand was smooth and long and probably his touch too, but my eyes remained on the old wrinkled worked hand of the old man across me.

A beautiful woman is great but how much till you look rather to a more interesting one, not perfect one? How you feel near a perfect human being you, that you know are not perfect?

That is why we have to tell also in our tales our less perfect "us" not only about all that went well in our lives.
