[⏵] With a Satanic main character, this remarkable debut film portrays the destructive fascination of evil. Djé is a man without a history, a sinister scoundrel, a devious drifter. After a spell in prison and penniless, he makes his way to Paris. He survives the cold nights in the capital as a vagrant. Again and again, he manages to win the trust of strangers and find a bed for a night or two. When he starts a casual affair with Maya, a student, in a squat, he gradually reveals his true character, as seductive as it is malign.
