The first French-language film by Santiago Mitre is a black comedy full of macabre poetry that pays tribute to Sidney Bechet’s jazz standard Petite Fleur. Young father and unemployed graphic artist Jose is visiting his neighbour, hears Petite Fleur and then kills his host. The next day, however, the neighbour is alive and well again, as if the events of the previous day had never happened. So José kills him again, this time differently. But the neighbour keeps coming back. Killing his neighbour becomes a regular part of José’s routine: he looks after the baby, repairs the house – and kills his neighbour.


SANTIAGO MITRE (*1980 in Buenos Aires) studied film at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires. His second film Paulina won the FIPRESCI Prize in 2015 at Cannes. In 2017 came the political thriller The Summit, which like his debut feature Student (2011) had its Germany premiere at FILMFEST HAMBURG.
