Just Anybody

Le premier venu

Directed by Jacques Doillon
France, Belgium, 2008


Camille decides to give her love – not to the most attractive man, but to just anybody. To someone she thinks is in need of her. Like Costa, a roamer who lives in a bunker and at first glance is neither worthy of loving nor capable of it. Fascinated by Camille, a policeman follows the two.
