Le dxc3xa9but de l’hiver 2009
15min | Short, Drama | 9 July 2009 (France)
On a winter morning, a young boy walks in the countryside along an isolated road. A truck stops. The driver offers the child to take him. Gradually, the man is enterprising, to commit the irreparable.
A short film that offers “the irreparable” when a child hitchhikes to go home and is greeted by a pedophile driver. The prey is surrounded, cannot defend itself and suffers. It won’t go any further when the driver notices the kid’s reluctance and there are people around. Without these, he would surely have passed the course. The dialogue may seem fast and stereotypical but we are talking about a short film, we cannot spread out. Everything seems fair, or on the contrary unfair, but it can happen thus or totally differently, the point of view is understood and well transcribed.
