It's the end of summer vacation for Amin. The young photographer spends cozy evenings with Charlotte, the ex-girlfriend of his Casanova cousin. She talks to him about literature, he ... See full summary »
Amin, an aspiring screenwriter and photographer, returns to his hometown, a fishing village in the south of France, after living a year in Paris. He spends his time hopping from beach to beach and from bar to bar, finding his childhood friends and chasing new encounters. The summer lights of the Mediterranean coast guide his quest for love, as he hopes to live a passionate romance like in the movies. Surrounded by his loving family, who sometimes helps and often hinders, Amin searches to find his own way. Inspiration comes in the form of many female characters who enchant him, but when it comes to love only the mektoub ("destiny" in Arabic) can decide. This coming-of-age saga set in 1994 casts a nostalgic glow on losing the innocence of youth.
A fake director using fake codes to make a fake movie
This is ridiculously bad, he tries to give his self a style when he doesnt have any, he is the definition of a wannabe.
The vulgar way of filming, the emptyness of the subject, the boring characters and actors and his way of trying to be special and arty is just making me want to scream out about his poorness, thinking how can people fall into such an obvious trap, do peoplejust follow the « fashion » like sheeps, dont they have the capacity of telling this movie is empty?
He is trying to capture instants of life, as Jim Jarmusch for example can do in a brillant and very intelligent way, but here it is simply EMPTY completely boring, nothing interesting nothing that sounds real or fun, simply emptyness.
I could only think to myself during the whole movie, did he really chose this job to only be able to hangout with sexy girls and get to know them, the only motivation he has by being a « director » is to have power over those girls.
That is the only thing i come out with after 3hours of deep boringness, how can he find producers after this seriously i dont know, people might be forgetting what cinema is about.
Avoid anything that has to deal with this director, he is an imposter.
