Low budget sci fi
25 January 2009 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

The subject is hackneyed: the world after the press-button war (or something like that).Men has become figures in a ruined landscape.Life in society is a thing they cannot do anymore,they are so full of fear they live on their own.

Philippe is one of these men;his wife ,Yvette,was killed by three strangers).Philippe is desperately in need of someone to talk with.He meets a group of children .But they are building something new,something he cannot understand .These brats have understood that grown-ups failed and they do not need them anymore.

Made on a shoestring budget by a director who has remained completely unknown,"Demain Les Momes" show brats who ask man for an explanation.Some day,they will.

Like this?try these....
