story to a movie is what voice once has been to a song...
this is still valid for European movies, and "Quartier lointain" is an example of this. alright, it is probably not the best movie ever, but the story has soul, even if the story is small, but life is knitted together with small stories like this.
the search for love, the feeling of something lost, the memory of past desires and forgotten anxieties, the wish to turn back time, the dreams of dreams...
a story moving in its own pace, no flashes and exaltations, just a fragment in the life, that should not be spent in vain
