Vernon knew his life had fallen asunder; not that he ever looked back. Mild, lazily attractive and unreliable old Vernon, fast approaching his half century. By the age of 20 he had found his preferred dream haunt - and so began working in Revolver, a cool Parisian music store. Boys envied him, girls lined up and eventually he ended up owning the place. No wife, no children, his parents died young, yet when it came to drugs, music and open access to the rampaging social scene, he couldn't complain.
But nothing remains the same; his old buddies begin to die off, his hair goes white, the business folds and suddenly his cupboards are bare. Vernon ends up kicked out of his apartment, walking Paris streets and reaching out through Facebook (he does use a cell phone) to find a friend couch to sleep, but his friends have changed ... The overdose death of Alex Bleach (a pale rock star) , leaving Vernon a few tapes adds a thriller aspect to the story....
The serie is an adaptation of the two first books (out of three), bestsellers written by Virginie Despentes, nine episodes of 30 minutes . Mission impossible to render her style and language.... Looks like a short trailer , nicely done with a good soundtrack ....but I only wish it gives anyone the desire to read thes books .
