A truly different TV-serie, a genuine gem that is amongst Pialat's best films.
Just imagine the shock : the year is 1971, you are 14 years old and you are used to the inept TV-series that already crowd the TV screens. All of a sudden comes this UFO, where all your comfortable and reassuring knowledge about what cinema is, is shattered. This is just a black, uncut diamond, certainly of one Pialat's best achievements, and the emotional force of true life and real persons is really mesmerizing and will haunt you for a long time.
