La fille de nulle part

de Jean-Claude Brisseau


A widower, Michel leads a lonely life, until one day he takes in a girl who’s been beaten up. When she recovers, a series of strange events will start to happen at home. Jean-Claude Brisseau directs, acts in and uses his own apartment in this movie halfway between parody and profound. A fantastic film that won the Golden Leopard Award at the Locarno Festival.
