Quotes

Victor: To Theo: You're right, I like to sleep in. Getting up for a desk job - what a nightmare. And when I look at you, your face, your haircut, your clothes, it's the most depressing thing - a flunky working for a boss, parked in a chair for eternity. Without your cologne, you reek of death.
Rainer: To Theo: You're like a window display - no flaws allowed or you're done. The second you're at a loss for a put down - bang, you're dead!
Victor: Again to Theo: You're on borrowed time. So is your gold card, your car, ...

Well directed, non-conventional film
13 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

I've just seen this film at BAFICI (14 edition) in Buenos Aires. And I actually enjoyed it. This is not a plot-based film. It's an overview on how life looks like for two teenagers from Paris' suburbs. Victor and Rainer go to a night club in Paris, maybe running away from their lives, but then they find out such escape is not enough. The film depicts very well how adolescence looks like in modern, big cities. Where children of middle or lower class parents roam around at night without too much to do. The film uses poetry as another mean for the characters to express themselves. The music plays a big role in creating the right atmosphere for the scenes. A film to see with the eyes wide open.
