Return by Gabrielle Le Bayon

Return by Gabrielle Le Bayon

Through a letter addressed to his father, Ulysses explains the reasons which have led him to come back to his homeland after many years. Inspired from Homer’s “Odyssey”, “Return” points at the choice Ulysses has to make between the space of fiction where he could become immortal and the space of reality where he is threatened by death. He aspires to reach again a space where he will find a community of souls with a certain system of values and a certain representation of life. “Return” evokes the relevance of Ulysses quest in our present-day culture, which reveals a narrative where men are History, invention, transformation as well as personal grief and happiness, where they have to negotiate being in society as much as being individuals.
