This aggressively pretty short felt to me somewhat vacuous. The type of film which seems catered to leaving behind some nice screenshots, but a lack of emotional or logical resonance joining one shot to another. This seems to be a critique of the language of violence, particularly in it's white testosterone fueled affluent embodiment. If anything the images celebrate this mystique rather than offer insight.
Plays like a beautifully photographed student film with way too much white angst. An exemplary case of a film that misjudges we'll emotionally invest in inert, sad characters just by virtue of their being sad and inert. The film also fails miserably at conveying any sense of a real, believable world (David Lynch's film, by comparison, are clearly 'unreal', but still have an organic, living quality to them).
There's anger and hate in the atmosphere which is a clear achievement. Nevertheless the whole thing lacks guidance and perspective, the narrative flows so detached you can only speculate about every single piece of it. As a result, felt pointless and not engaging at all.
It looks, sounds, and feels fantastic. But as the music played at the end and I realised how "cool" the whole thing was, I couldn't help but feel it would have made more sense as a music video than a stylish but overall pointless short film. Perhaps would have been more enjoyable if it had been fleshed out into a feature film? Young French men being moody and handsome to a catchy soundtrack. Could have been worse.
I interpret this film as the older brother having killed the younger brother, perhaps by mistake with the gun he used to join the gang. He can never be at peace but the gang affords him a distraction. No doubt the other members have gone down equally troublesome paths to be where they are now - unified.
Some fascinating tracking shots. Although it may appear incoherent due to its fragmented nature, it works beautifully as a short. Vinel and Poggi present a refined approach to filmmaking. Evidently experimental with both form and content, they juxtapose elements that wouldn't normally belong together. The score during the final sequence is simply exceptional.
it is really stylish and it works its very nice! lovely story, great locations! i knew I heard Salem in the soundtrack (which is fantatsic) lol + where to cop one of them sick jackets?! ++ raid abandoned house, steal guns,bleach your hair and join a gang is also a great to do list lmao
an average story with great scenes. looks like the director made a kinda patchwork of his favorite films, from tarkovsky, almadovar, fellini etc. suffering palms? naaaaaaaaah! so many missing points, so many meaningless moments. worths to watch? as a long short film; yes. as a film? nope.
