Le feu follet

Louis Malle France, 1963

SpacePirate's rating of the film The Fire Within

This film perfectly describes how I felt getting off the sauce. I, like, the protagonist, could feel nothing. Suicide was always considered, but in the end, I immersed myself in books, music, film, and art, until eventually the pain and emptiness became bearable. I had to keep my brain preoccupied, as otherwise my story would've ended with the same conclusion. A great study on depression. 5 stars
