Storyline

Young lovers ask, "What would you do if I died?" In this case, the young lovers are twins, Nina and Lucien, brother and sister. He answers, "I'll make you live again." Then, in an accident, Nina dies. She's been a rocker on the rise, taking Lucien out of a stable where he worked and bringing him into the music business. He seals her body in the case of a bass fiddle, straps it to the top of his car, and travels across France. He picks up a hitchhiker, helps a Turk he bumps into on the road, visits his birthplace and a boyhood friend, and reaches a seaport. Along the way, he listens to Nina's music, pastes up her posters, and remembers. How will he make her live again? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

this movie is fantastic; one of my top ten all time--being a twin helps though.
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is not sick at all. Nor is it poorly made. It's about attachment and emotional connection. It's thoroughly French, evocative and moody; a road movie as well. Everyone in it is searching for someone/something. The star (Laurent Malet) delivers a great performance. I loved it.I saw it at a difficult time in my life. My father had died and a close friend had passed away from AIDS. I was quite susceptible to any depiction of great commitment and devotion. There are great cinematic images in it as well. A superb shot at the beach-towards the end of the film. Peter del Monte is Italian and has not made many films but I saw another of his films with Emmanuelle Riva in it. Can't remember the title though. I will say a person should have a real interest in French films to like this movie. It's in a style which would include Diva and Subway.
