Part of our Rising Star strand
After a 3-year stint in prison, an unreasonably optimistic middle-aged man returns to his stagnant neighborhood to win back his girlfriend only to find that she and his family have done what they always wanted to do - forget he exists.
Andre Royo is a revelation in this funny but sad tale of one man trying to get his life back on track. This highly eccentric film blends urban realism with a mythic quality that sees it develop a poetry all of its own.
Go see if you liked THE FISHER KING and or CINEMA PARADISO.
