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>

18 December 2005 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most beautiful, most genuine, most sincere films I ever saw.

You are so incredibly talented, and at the same time, such a beautiful and amazing person, Sig

It seems my comment doesn't contain enough lines

So I will just repeat

this is one of the most beautiful, most genuine, most sincere films I ever saw.

Just like you are one of those people. Sig

It is one of the most unpretentious, and, at the same time, most exquisite films I ever saw...

Just like you are one of those people, Sig.
