What a wonderful movie, this tale of a young unbalanced man who desperately searches for a meaning in life. A disenchanted guy, splendidly played by Nicolas Duvauchelle, who is afraid of the true meaning of life and its whereabouts, an existence which he tries to escape from by all means. This man has his elder parents whose the father is ill of Alzheimer disease, a young man with strong left winged convictions who fights for his ideals. You have here a poignant film, gripping at the most that also speaks of forgiveness, understanding and love. A movie from which you can learn fundamental lessons of life. Terrific acting for a powerful piece of work.
