Alain is a little boy from the Reunion Island born on the wrong side of the tracks. To earn a few pennies, he recites Arthur Rimbaud’s poems to drivers stuck at the red light.
One day, Alain is invited to Guillaume’s birthday who lives uptown.
Guillaume Levil has written and directed a few short films which were shown all over France and abroad and a feature : You Can’t Write a Letter. He directed Un tour de cheville (The Anklet), and wrote Fils (Son), two shorts which were selected for more than 80 festivals for the first one and 160 for the second one.
Born in Provence, Guillaume Levil likes shooting in the south to catch the light that inspires him from lands of many tales and legends. As a true lover of Capra’s and Pagnol’s work, he gives away images as story-teller, not to escape reality but to celebrate it differently.
