Quotes

Rainer: He was a soldier, a young soldier, open-mouthed, bare-headed, his nape bathed in the cool blue cresses. He's lying on the grass under the clouds, pale in his green bed where light falls like rain. His feet amidst the gladioli, he sleeps. Nature, hold him warmly. He is cold. Perfumes don't make his nose quiver. He sleeps in the sun one hand on his chest, tranquil. He has two red holes in his right side.

Well directed, non-conventional film
13 April 2012 | by LeoDRKSee 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.
