You're not serious when you're 60

Madeleine Melquiond

Madeleine Melquiond denounces the clichés about seniors, advisers of all kinds who claim to tell people in their sixties what to do and delivers a portrait of herself and retirees that is as funny as it is moving. It shows that people in their sixties are no longer old people, but finally relaxed adults, whom society should respect rather than infantilize them. She encourages all those who do not accept being considered unproductive because they have passed the milestone of retirement to make their voices heard, diverse and without complexes, and not to fall prey to “marketing for seniors”.
