Super trash

Super trashLoading "Martin returns his childhood place. He has now been buried by a huge open dump. Martin decides to settle and live in this world of garbage, punctuated by the forth back and forth dances of trucks and bulldozers leveling and discharging waste. For days and months, Martin will mark his place in an unbearable universe seemingly driving to madness. He feeds himself with the trash. He bathes into the river each daily, like a step back to the primitive world. He looks after animals trapped in the hellhole, and surfs on giant wave generated by the trash.

Une jeunesse amoureuse

Une jeunesse amoureuseLoading "François Caillat was twenty in 1970. From this, a certain banality, he nevertheless decided to make a film. A film that is both intimate and universal, which revolves around his stolen loves and his youth, starting from an era that itself seems gone forever. Without doubt this is done any time, and that is why this film will touch every viewer old enough to be attentive to the experience of loss which constitutes it. But something comes over in this film: the alliance of the 1970s as an unsurpassable horizon of freedom with the melancholy of ruins that followed them." -- www.lemonde.fr
