Storyline

As remedy to this life, he invents a blind person's mask to penetrate into the intimacy of his customers. This subtlety allows Adrien to get back the taste for music. But since he sees things he should not see, Adrien ends up witnessing a murder. Written by Anonymous

Clever, compelling
19 March 2012 | by Indie FriendlieSee all my reviews

We here at Indie Friendlie.com watched this clever and captivating French- language, short film and really enjoyed it.

The premise: a piano tuner who pretends to be blind in order to win the sympathy of his clients and is doing well, until he witnesses a murder while on the job.

This short film needs to be a feature film, and bring the cast and crew along to the bigger project for the big screen, as performances and direction were clean and on point.

We are definitely looking forward to the next film from director Olivier Treiner.
