Thierry de Peretti | France | 2017 | 107 min. | O.V. in French with Spanish and English subtitles
In the clamor of the Corsican liberation movement, the underground movement fosters dangerous games in which terrorism and the mafia coincide, in a fight to the death for independence. In this climate, Stéphane goes to Paris, fleeing from his past in those conflicts. The death of a former comrade brings back memories of how in the ‘90s he went from being a middle class youth with aspirations to becoming radicalized and turning his life into a constant persecution. He has to decide whether to go to the funeral or not, a dilemma that could cost him his life, in a film that premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes.
