Dans la foret (Into the Forest)

de Gilles Marchand



Tom and Benjamin travel to Sweden to spend their vacation with their father, who they haven’t seen in a long time. Tom is worried about being reunited with this strange and solitary man. The father, on the other hand, is convinced that his son has the gift of seeing things that are completely imperceptible to others. These three characters’ coexistence in an inhospitable forest will be as unsettling as it is revealing.
