If you were to design your dream house now that you're at the end of your life, what would it look like? This question from the filmmaker to her father, retired architect Karlhans Pfleiderer, is the starting point of Das Retirée or the last house of my father. Slowly but surely, the house takes form, first drawn on shifting layers of transparent paper, then glued into a scale model. Between the words and the gestures, the film of the daughter becomes the father’s last house, a space in which unspoken words, unfulfilled desires can appear, disclosing coping-mechanisms that have survived several generations.

The form of the narrative has touched us since it puts in relation two different perspectives, both opposite. An intergenerational meeting in which everyone can find themselves with the contradictions and differences that we experience over the years. One discerns the price to a short film that reveals in a rigorous form the fragility of family relations.
