At dawn, the parents die in a car accident. In Paris, the police informs teenage Marie of her parents’ death, but Marie is unable to tell her younger brother Eric the bad news, and the two go on vacation as planned. Without Eric knowing, she starts her own investigation and discovers who caused their parents’ death…
From the director of Tokyo Eyes and Young Yakuza.
Born in 1949 near Paris, Jean-Pierre Limosin meets at the end of the 70’s film critic for Cahiers du Cinéma Alain Bergala. They both manage a cultural centre photography and video workshop. In 1983 they direct together “Faux fuyants”, which premieres in Cannes’ Critics’ Week. At the beginning of the 90’s, after two other feture films, Limosin turns to television and documentary, taking part in the celebrated series “Cinéastes de notre temps” (Filmmakers of Our Time).
His travels to Japan inspired many of his latest productions. His brilliant “Tokyo Eyes” (1998) features filmmaker Takeshi Kitano in a small part.
