All Over

A vain and wealthy man, Lormerin is a slave to his mirror and very little else.

However, one day, he opens a letter to find that his old flame, Lise, will be in town with her daughter, and he is invited to join them for dinner.

What happens next causes Lormerin to reflect on himself in more ways than one...

Paving the way for films, such as ‘Venus,’ starring Peter O’Toole and former Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker, ‘All Over’ is a melancholy look at love and ageing.

It will delight fans of OScar Wilde's ´Dorian Gray´.

Hailed as one of the pioneers of the modern short story, Henri Ren Albert Guy de Maupassant (1850 - 1893) was born in Dieppe, France. After his parents’ divorce, Maupassant was cared for by his mother who had a passion for literature.

During his secondary education, he was introduced to the acclaimed novelist, Gustave Flaubert, who was to play a prominent part in Maupassant’s literary career.

The Franco-Prussian War saw the author enlist in the Navy, and his experiences influenced many of his books, including ‘Boule de Suif.’ Flaubert was to take him under his wing after the war, introducing him to realist and naturalist authors, such as Émile Zola and Ivan Turgenev.
