On Day 10, Yves is disoriented again. Perhaps he is bowing to the muse, or he’s lost a contact lense or both…or he’s hitting the deck to deal with the End of Days, either way, he’s frigging starving..and could defintiely use a crossiant right about now.
IN COMPETION: “PATER” FRANCE 105 MINS
SYNOPSIS: Vincent Lindon and Alain Cavalier are pals. Like father and son. They sip port in bars dreaming of a film they might make. Together.
Then just once in a while, they don suit and tie. Play men of power. See how much trouble they can make. For a laugh. They tell a tall story, that’s part really personal, part, well – just plain tall. Only, as ever at the movies, there’s that excellent question no one can answer: is it really all make-believe?
