A journey inside Martin's head. He's on a weekend mountain trip, and we get to know his thoughts. Unsensored, essential, existential and silly about feelings and fantasies. A recognizable film about being human, and how we tick and think.

This is the first film directed by Hélène Filières, the female Corsican gang leader of MAFIOSA TV mini series. This movie is a rather strange feature, inspired from actual events: the offbeat death of a famous banker: Edouard Stern, killed by his mistress with whom he had a sadomasochistic relationship. Benoit Pooelverde finds here a character which suits him like a glove. The same for Laetitia Casta. This is also a film with nameless characters. At any moment, we know their real names. Just characters. Period.
This movie is worth a look. A good try for a first film. I think Hélène Filières will continue in film making. She seems gifted for this.
Philippe Nahon has also a nasty character, usual for him.
