rated for 0 + years
Paris at night. Home to Jeni, Wenceslas, Christine, Pascal and all the other homeless who live on the streets, under bridges or in the passageways of the Métro. Their place is at the end of the world, where society's safety net doesn't reach. The film doesn't show off their poverty, it is shown more as a contrast, with carefully composed, poetic pictures. The protagonists get the space to tell their stories, whether fragmentary or coherent. No inquisitorial questioning, no pressure to conform. We are witness to a critical appraisal, in the true sense of the words.
