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>

very much alive!
18 November 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Never a dull moment in this picture. Louise wants to get everything out of life. She spends most of her day cruising Paris and its metro network in the company of her pickpocket friends, a young boy who ought to be at school, and a homeless poetic guy who is in love with her. Her rather naive and dreamy view of life clashes with the rough life on the street but she would not want to miss it, because this is 'la grande vie' that her novelist father writes about.
