L’autre Célia

Fortnight 1992, Short film, 22 mn

Synopsis

Lucien lives on his own on a furnished flat. He works at home and spends all his time on his favorite activity: spying on the others tenants. He watches their comings and goings and takes advantage of their absence to break into their rooms. He opens the cupboards, the drawers, the bags and cases, searches the pocket and goes through their mail… For this shy and lonely man, this “pathological” curiosity is maybe a way to deal with the outside world. It fills him with a certain jubilation and harms nobody. Until, one day, Célia arrives…
