Celeste serves as a hound for her master as he is looking for the truth. Celeste, a German film about a dedication of servant for her master, is brought to you by the Hyderabad Film Club in collaboration with the Association Of German Culture, Hyderabad.
Celeste, a young peasant woman, goes to work in the household of Marcel Proust, an ailing literary genius. Though he suffers from debilitating asthma, Proust keeps unusual, painstaking work hours. Celeste Albaret waits patiently in the kitchen for ‘Monsieur’ to ring and waits fifty years to tell her story.
From the memoirs of Celeste Albaret, Percy Aldon crafts this biography of Marcel Proust, one of France's most celebrated literary figures. The film is simultaneously a convincing depiction of the artists at work and serves as an insightful study of the congeniality and empathy between a master and his servant.
