Through these short episodes, Jacqueline Veuve tells the story of people who have given their names to a street somewhere in Suisse Romande. Among the film maker’s perfectly arbitrary choice, there is, for instance, an author, a pilot, the owner of a bistro, a woman musician, a ship captain, a queen , a painter, a feminist...They are described by specialists or amateurs, passionately interested by these lives.

Press review

One of the best things about this great series is to make us find who or what is hidden behind the name of our own street. L'Hebdo, Lausanne, 27.6.96 (Pierre-Yves Borgeaud) By an untiring stroke of luck, Jacqueline Veuve has yet another gift, that of finding the right person today to tell us of a character whose name has become only an address. Le Nouveau Quotidien, Lausanne, 6.7.96 (Bertil Galland)
