Feature Film

Paris, three nights. Alex is 22. He’s an "enfant terrible" who wants to leave his mark on life and art. He spends his time trailing two young couples he’s been spying on. In the course of his move­ments, he comes across children, old people, tee­nagers, young men, old bachelors, faded women and girls still in their prime... a fantom world where everybody tries to keep his distance, mea­sure the lengths that separate them from others.
Usually, Alex is silent. But when he talks, he speaks too much and too fast. He ends up follo­ wing his own voice, dangerously. One night, it will all end badly and fearfully.
