Gondry's newest film, "The Thorn in the Heart" (L'Epine dans le Coeur), further propels his filmography into the realm of the unvisted with a personal look at the life of Gondry family matriarch, his aunt Suzette Gondry, and her relationship with her son, Jean—Yves. Michel examines Suzette's years as a schoolteacher and her life in rural France. During the course of filming the documentary, new family stories are unearthed and Michel uses his camera to explore them in a subtle and sensitive way. "The Thorn in the Heart" had its world premiere screening in the official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
