Synopsis

A village in the south of France, it is very hot and all lies abandoned. Joshua, 18, wanders around aimlessly. It is the memories of his friend Silvain’s suicide that guide him. Joshua wants to die too, but he doesn’t want to leave his brother alone. Meanwhile, he meets a gang: the Icebergs.

Our take

This Golden Bear winning short film is a crime-drama-meets-indie-ghost-story(!), with its own irresistibly peculiar way of looking at the world. Set in a suffocating suburban setting, its story might unravel like a video game, yet its emotions are deeply anchored to reality.
