Parisian squatters must vacate the building they have been occupying. It is the final moments before their departure. Occasional musical performances take place, some radical remarks are pronounced, and a telephone call fails to find a solution. Possible lives take shape. At the centre of this tale: a charming woman and a rather dark future... Is it fiction or reality? Fragments of truth very well “acted”.

In spring 2011, subject to an eviction notice, Parisian squatters must vacate the building they have been occupying for six months. A community’s ephemeral existence draws to a close. The men and women are apparently carefree as they live through the final moments before their departure. Occasional musical performances take place, some radical remarks are uttered, a telephone call fails to find a solution. Possible lives are taking shape. At the centre of this tale is a charming woman with a rather uncertain future... A beautiful energy runs through this short film, in which a feminine character interacts with an exclusively masculine world. The two filmmakers get close to their protagonist, a kind of contemporary Jean Seberg who embodies certain feminine ideals (blonde and fickle, with doe eyes, a lovely voice and piercings), in her conversations with her temporary companions. They thus bear witness to a place of contradictions where everyone dreams of perpetually poetic situations and finds themselves caught up in a certain banality. Is this fiction or reality? Fragments of truth that are very well “acted”. Luciano Barisone
