Sébastien Lifshitz

Fortnight 1998, Short film, 47 minutes

Synopsis

« This troubled individual has nothing to say, in the course of his wanderings and encounters, he simply reflects the situation of individuals in our society. » Rémi is 18. He divides his time between high school, which bores him, his family, his friend Thomas and the grocery store where he works nights. His life is monotonously uneventful. One day, out of curiosity, he attends an audition. The director, Marc, is taken with his acting as well as with his physique. Later, Marc and Rémi sleep together. Confused by this experience as well as his father’s illness, Rémi loses all bearings. He wanders the streets, engages in numerous sexual encounters, both male and female, to lose himself – unless it is to prove something to himself. But what ?
