Victor, a lad of 8 or 9, runs away from his neglectful parents. That night he makes his way to a carnival, where Mick, who runs one of the rides, takes him late at night to the apartment of Triche, his sometime girlfriend who is a prostitute. The boy and the young woman develop a relationship that gives Victor a loving place to call home and gives Triche strength to figure out what she wants to do with her life. There's Mick, who's here for awhile then on the road; there's Robert, the kid downstairs who becomes Victor's friend until things go awry; and, there's Mira, a hardhearted whore to whom Triche owes money. Triche's birthday approaches and it's time for decisions. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Very intriguing
10 April 2005 | by bertysSee all my reviews

The movie catches the viewer from the first second: what the heck is going on here? This isn't a movie for those who like movies which explain just everything to the viewer: with this movie many scenes will make you wonder again: what's the meaning of this? It keeps the viewer focused during the entire movie. Some parts are filmed very romantically as only the French can. Sometimes one realizes some scenes aren't really credible, but do they need to be? They don't hurt the movie, they actually make the movie to this wonderful piece of French art. I watched this movie with a 13 year old boy, who couldn't take away his attention from this movie. It was all too strange and too intriguing.
