I still haven't found what I'm looking for. U2? No, Salomé!
26 July 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

Tuesday evening, I saw this film at a French premiere in the presence of the director Alain Raoust, the Belgian actors Salomé Richard, Yoann Zimmer and part of the film crew, within UGC Les Halles, in Paris. Synthetic speech on the ZAR, an unknown French acronym for « Zone À Rêver » (a place to dream), and the youth which would be a state of freshness.

The film describes the encounters of lost people around a garbage dump in southeastern France. It's globally uneven but extremely refreshing. I particularly loved certain scenes. In bulk: the unforgettable arrival of Jessica interpreted by Estelle Meyer, the psychedelic dance with the ridiculous costumes of moles, the unexpected arrival of the cyclist interpreted by Jacques Bonnaffé, the afterdark dance with an ultra-bokeh background, ...

Finally, the main young actress Salomé Richard manages to shine despite the excellent supporting roles that could make her a shadow. As a synthesis: 6/7 of 10
