La Moustache

Fortnight 2005, Feature film, 1h26

Synopsis

One day, thinking that it will make your wife and friends smile, you shave off the moustache that you have had for the last ten years. No one notices or, even worse, everyone pretends not to notice and your own smile soon fades. Before being wiped off your face. You insist but people tell you that you’ve never had a moustache. Are you going mad? Are people trying to make you think you are? Or has something in the world’s order gone awry at your expense?
