Baptiste is a solitary type. A teacher in southern France, he never stays more than three weeks in the same job. One Friday, he finds himself in charge of Mathias, one of his pupils, who hasn't been picked up after school. Mathias takes the boy to his mother, Sandra. She's a beautiful woman who has led a bit of a wild life and who now works on a beach near Montpellier. Within a day, the trio have formed a bond, like the beginnings of a family for these three people who don't have one. But the magic doesn't last. Sandra owes money and if she doesn't pay up something dire could happen. She must hit the road, flee once again. To help Sandra, Baptiste must take a look back at the origins of his own life, at the most painful and secret parts of himself. Written by
seductive for cold atmosphere. for profound French story. for the science of Nicole Garcia to explore a delicate subject. for the slices of silence. for acting. and for the parts of story who are only the viewer's creation. a film about choices and about happiness. about family and errors. about freedom and love in a special manner. a film about honesty. Pierre Rocheford does a good work. not remarkable but useful for define his character in subtle way. he has the science of detail and the film explores not exactly a story but a state of soul. it is not a revelation and for the admirers of Nicole Garcia not a surprise. but it has coherence and delicate poetry of gestures. and that fact does it more than a good movie.
