A Girl Named Elastika Guillaume Blanchet

Elastika is not like any other girl, because she is made of elastics. And because her universe is made of cork. Her journey is also one of a kind, as she jumps from one building to another, crosses an ocean, or travels to space by holding on to a firework rocket.

“Gloria Victoria” unfolds on the still-smouldering rubble of a furious 20th century. Resembling a military march with bolero overtones, the music sweeps over imagery of combat fronts and massacres, leading us from Dresden to Guernica, from the Spanish Civil War to “Star Wars”. It is at once a symphony that serves the war machine, that stirs the masses, and art that mourns the dead, voices its outrage and calls for peace.

Solomon and Berta are two seekers who arrive – their treasured bathtub improbably in tow – in a land that promises respite from their many journeys. From the first optimistic moments after their arrival, to the final haunting scene at sea, the film captures the state of being displaced – whether by circumstance or by choice.

We all know the situation: you meet someone again after a long time and just can’t remember their name. This film depicts the workings of the synapses in our brain as a funny and sometimes terrifying version of the TV game show “Password”.
