Quotes

Rainer: Now I'm throwing myself off the Pont Neuf and attempting an exceptional swan dive. I'm swimming in the Seine and I'm coming Paris. Right now it's the magical hour, the blue hour, the hour when the city of light shares the dawn with Madrid and Vienna. Swimming up the river streams, utterly naked, I swim towards the galactic paths of the Pacific... Tired, my forehead bathed in a mist, I lie on the crest of a wave that spills its foam in the coral sea and leaves me on the sands of the Guinean ...

Well directed, non-conventional film
13 April 2012 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this film at BAFICI (14 edition) in Buenos Aires. And I actually enjoyed it. This is not a plot-based film. It's an overview on how life looks like for two teenagers from Paris' suburbs. Victor and Rainer go to a night club in Paris, maybe running away from their lives, but then they find out such escape is not enough. The film depicts very well how adolescence looks like in modern, big cities. Where children of middle or lower class parents roam around at night without too much to do. The film uses poetry as another mean for the characters to express themselves. The music plays a big role in creating the right atmosphere for the scenes. A film to see with the eyes wide open.
