The life in a Catalan (Southern France) village near the border may be quite boring. A young man who is escaping from his homeland is seeking for something and may find it in this weird place. You see the relationship between the people in the village, their dreams, their past and their perspectives in life. The foreigner is hosted there and is messed in the deep whereabouts of these people and tries somehow to fit in. This is such a great film. Nothing unexpected if you have seen the other movies from Marc Recha. He is one of a very few directors with personality nowadays. Great performance and originality. Been said it is boring, ain't real life boring?
