Storyline

A shaky camera takes us through Paris: the winding tunnels where the Metro trains run; the glittering neon-lit city streets; on shopping trolleys through stores; up onto abandoned roofs; and into the labyrinth of fear and desire. Meet young Parisienne Louise. She has a "wonderful life" together with her boyfriend and her gang. They live in a self-made sanctuary where life floats along on thefts, drug dealing and odds and ends. But her life changes the day she meets Gaby, an abandoned boy who's learnt to look after himself, and the slacking dandy Remi. Written by <ftwaeoi@yahoo.com>

beautiful in every way
7 March 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is an incrediblly beautiful french Movie. Its a story about a group of young people and about their search for freedom and love and the conventions which keep them away from attaining these highest off all human goods. Conventions that both are part of the society they live in and the mere constitution of their own souls. I just love the shaky camera and smooth urban/hip-hop/Jazz soundtrack. The actors play their roles with such a realistic perfection that you actually think you're wondering with them through the streets of Paris. The Plot is more of a secondary importance. this movie is more about the poetic images and the down to life dialogs and has more the aspect of a short glimpse into the lives of its characters than of an exactly scripted story. Because this movie tries to show life trough the lens of a handy-cam and life is not scripted like a big Hollywood production.
