Un frère…

Fortnight 1997, Feature film, 1 h 30

Synopsis

They live with their mother. In Arcueil, a Paris suburb. Loïc takes the train. He wants to make it to Paris, fast. Sophie doesn’t know what she wants, but she wants something. She walks into Loïc’s life, just for a look. Here, on the other side, is Vincent, Loïc’s friend. Sophie will want him, Loïc will never forgive himself. She moves forward, so does he, but in the wrong direction. They share the same fighting spirit. Out by Arcueil, Tony and Virginie also have learned to fight. And even if they haven’t the choice of arms, they resist. “Our life is a journey into winter and night, we are looking for our way through the sky where nothing shines”. Sophie calls that love.
