Pleasure of Being Robbed (The)

Fortnight 2008, Feature film, 1h20


A curious and lost Eléonore looks for something everywhere, even in the bags of strangers who find themselves sadly smiling only well after she’s left their lives. They owe her their thanks. It’s is a portrait of loneliness at its guttural worst and best, funniest and saddest, real and unreal, under the blanket and atop.


Josh Safdie

Joshua and Benny Safdie were born and raised in New York, under the eye of their father’s Super 8 camera with which he kept filming them. During his film studies at Boston University, Josh met Sam Lisenco, Brett Jutkiewicz and Zachary Treitz. Together with Benny, they founded the collective, Red Bucket Films. They all live and work in New York, producing one another’s films. Go get some Rosemary is the first film co-directed the two brothers.
