a lonely man
25 June 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Many motifs to see this film. the admirable performance of Nicolas Duvachelle. the second - tragic story of a lonely man. lost in his good intentions. fighting for be part of society. full of good intentions. victim of a sort of curse. ignored, full of angry. and only victim of circumstances. a confusion, the desire to be a good father and husband, a sort of Peter Pan syndrome. a young man looking for normal life. honest and out of every chance to convince. a film who seems familiar. but , proposing a different angle about a form of survive who can not work. for a sort of guilty who reminds the old Greek tragedy. a film for reflect. about a form of vulnerability. and about the worse answer to the every day challenges.
