Family life during Jonathan's childhood resembled theatre in many ways. Every day was a performance with humorous and dramatic scenes, some of which were etched in his memory. It was both an intense and colourful time. Home was a playground of great freedom and joyous carefree fun; but also with a fair share of visiting scoundrels. Bonnie and Clyde, and weekends away at the beach.
In Saga we are told the story through the perspective of Jonathan and his sister. Two voices carry a story about life in a unique, euphoric, playful, melancholy, and somewhat dark past in The Pyrenees.
“...an introspective form of theatre that is as sensual and fascinating as a tale by the Brothers Grimm. ... This delicious expedition into the heart of a purely fantastical landscape proves it is possible grow up without forgetting anything from this state of childhood consciousness that turns everything into magic...” (Les Inrocks, Patrick Sourd).
