Victor, a lad of 8 or 9, runs away from his neglectful parents. That night he makes his way to a carnival, where Mick, who runs one of the rides, takes him late at night to the apartment of Triche, his sometime girlfriend who is a prostitute. The boy and the young woman develop a relationship that gives Victor a loving place to call home and gives Triche strength to figure out what she wants to do with her life. There's Mick, who's here for awhile then on the road; there's Robert, the kid downstairs who becomes Victor's friend until things go awry; and, there's Mira, a hardhearted whore to whom Triche owes money. Triche's birthday approaches and it's time for decisions. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

a black and red universe
1 January 1999 | by DUBOSTgSee all my reviews

The first film of Sandrine Veysset, "Y aura-t-il de la neige à Noël ?", was all sun and summer. With the second one, she plunges us into a winter world, all black and red. Black as the night, during which most of the scene were shot. Red as Victor's coat, lost kid in a fun fair. Let alone the script which is not very credible (the kid is helped by a good-hearted young prostitute), the film presents good scenes (the birth of the relation between the two main characters) opposed to scenes I found too mannered, especially in the first part (face on a black background, 'zoom' on the mary-go-round). Finally, Sandrine Veysset proves us she is very good at building universes; even if this one is not as convincing as the precedent
