One woman's search for the man of her dreams turn out to be a quest of epic proportions in this offbeat comedy drama from writer and director Jean-Charles Fitoussi. 27-year-old Alix (Alix Derouin) is a woman who wants nothing more than to be loved. But finding her soul mate is a daunting task for Alix, and finding a man who won't use or betray her has been profoundly difficult. Alix has been traded from one boyfriend to another for years, and the chain of events reaches a new level of humiliation when she finds herself in the clutches of Raphaël, who happens to be a pimp. Even Raphaël isn't happy with her after he tries to trick her out, and he sells her to a violent man who beats her, rapes her and abandons her. Alix is rescued by Frédéric (Frédéric Bonpart), a man who much like Alix has been luckless in love since his wife passed on. While Alix and Frédéric have a great deal in common, they're not as compatible as they would hope, and their struggle to make a relationship work becomes increasingly difficult. In the meantime, Alix strikes up a friendship with Hélène (Hélène Boons), an eccentric woman who is looking after her ailing mother. Running over three hours, Je Ne Suis Pas Morte (aka I Am Not Dead) was an official selection at the 2009 Rotterdam International Film Festival.
