Triptych is a contemporary urban saga that tells the story of Michelle, a schizophrenic bookseller, her sister Marie, a singer and actress, and Thomas, a German neurologist and Marie’s future husband. Against a backdrop of written and visual poetry, this film depicts three pivotal moments in the lives of these characters through the subjects of creation, mental equilibrium, social interaction, solitude, and emotional response, all the while maintaining the essence of the play’s theme, which deals with the human voice. It’s a study of the relationship humans have with speech and communication in all its complexity and variations. These three lives become the primary locus of personal identity and emotion, with their many manifestations, variations, and implications, through each character’s inner development and burning desire for self-expression.

Triptyque est une fresque urbaine contemporaine qui raconte l’histoire de Michelle, libraire schizophrène, Marie, chanteuse et comédienne et Thomas, neurologue allemand. Ces trois vies liées deviennent le lieu privilégié de l’identité personnelle et de l’émotion, ses multiples manifestations, ses déclinaisons et ses implications à travers leur évolution intérieure respective et leur ardent désir de s’exprimer. Triptyque est une adaptation cinématographique de l’oeuvre théâtrale Lipsynch, mise en scène de Robert Lepage.
