A man and a woman are commenting on images in a studio. The images show Paris, filmed by the man, Vincent Dieutre, through the window of Simon’s apartment, his lover at the time. We see the metro, the canal, illegal Afghans, cars, buildings, people walking by. We hear conversations between the two lovers, the radio, a few notes on a piano, life in- and outside. In the studio, the woman, Eva Truffaut, questions herself and comments on what she seas and hears. The man answers, asks himself questions and remembers.
Vincent Dieutre reveals himself in the intimate setting of this amazing film about his last days with Simon. He analyzes in an illuminated way how love declines. He looks outside and compares his life with those of the Afghan refugees camping under the windows in an anonymous city. With these visual details, highlighted by discreet animation pictures, Jaurès builds unexpected bridges between the absolute intimacy and the unbearable madness. The film brings together these dimensions in the same humanistic sphere.
