    A young girl is taking a bath. She uses accessories, usually considered as dangerous but she never hurts herself.

    This short film is about the uncanny aspect of the bath ritual. The young girl washes her hair like a modern Ophelia not drowning, she shaves her legs, her crotch, her armpits not cutting herself . This short movie becomes opposite of gore style, in particular with the nail polish running down, evocating blood, rather than showing it like in The Big Shave of Martin Scorsese. This idea is enhanced with the pinks objects. The red is “light” (soft), a tone beyond gore.
    The pink evoking a girly-womanhood. The tools are shown as violent throughout
closer shots however it is a feeling. It is a fake drama : at the end she smiles, which remains hollywoodian melodrama.
    Does the sound come from the record-player or from the girl singing in her bath ? The music is ironical and claims that nothing happens to the heroine because she stays “le cul sur la commode” (the ass on the chest of drawers) The lyrics are from Jeanne Aubert who made two movies in Hollywood during the 30’s.
