Storyline

At the opening of the story two stories run in parallel: a girl is talking to her friend on her phone standing nearby the main character Paul himself having a conversation with his alter ego. He is interrupted by the girl who doesn't understand why he is talking to himself. She is upset that he is disturbing her flow and ask him to move away. In his conversation, Paul is arguing with his alter ego until he finally kills him. He then decides to end his life and jumps into the river. There within sixty minutes he will re-live his entire life. Thoughts and images come hurtling back; his alter ego, his previous girlfriend, all the sex, the violence and loss of identity among the life of others: the marine life deep inside the water. Written by Nicolas Gaud

Fantastic!
22 January 2009 | by jar89See all my reviews

This film is truly fantastic!

I'm in love with the lead actor Mark Joseph.

It's like a whole film underwater.

A documentary at the bottom of the ocean but with the actor underwater breathing under the sea.

We can hear his thoughts.

I don't agree with the comment that some of it is boring since he doesn't speak through all of the minutes.

For the sixty minutes underwater I think it's quiet nice to see the fish, shark and hear the delirious music.

Too much dialogue would have been annoying.

Not many stories can have such a dual exchange with the same actor playing his ego.

That actor is tremendous.

I did like the girl at the beginning and the end.

It's unreal.

She has a different conversation with someone else on the phone whilst the lead character has a conversation with his ego at the same time.

That is so clever!
