A young woman who moves to Paris with a disaster past. When she become a woman and think she's finally free from her past's shadows, some characters show up and she gets the chance to become an unique heroine.
I went into this knowing nothing, and I ended up really enjoying this film. The film begins with a man leaving his home unannounced, and wanders around France. In the mean time, his boyfriend tries to find his location using Grindr.
The film is broken up in segments that feel a bit like short films. There is a constant line of new characters being introduced, and brought into the story, and then quickly removed. I'd relate it in this way to "Before Sunrise", and films like it. While this has much less of a focus on dialog, it has a really amazing feel of adventure to it.
Some of these interactions are really successful, and some are confusing and even frustrating. But overall the film has a great flow to it, and I'd definitely recommend.
(Cinematography was also really nice in this!)
