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>

24 February 2000 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

the director film is one of the few which show the real life, near of the people, the problems that politics, media and all which are comfortable sitting in their office , don't want to see. A film out of traditional systems, in all the point of view: directory, theme of the underground...A positive,constructive person, for the life, again the death and not auto-destructive. A romantic person, which use very well the provocation in order to make us move...like Prévert, Italo Calvino... We need it so much...
