Fantasy drama directed by Stéphane Batut, with Thimotée Robart and Judith Chemla

The screening of the film and the discussion are canceled.

The screening will be followed by a talk with director Stéphane Batut. The discussion will be moderated by Aude Renaud-Lorrain.


The story begins in a Paris park when Juste, a lost young man who appears to be invisible to all, is rescued by a mysterious drifter. We learn that Juste has died but that Death has granted him a furlough of sorts, allowing him to serve as a guide into the afterworld to those recently deceased. And so, he continues to exist among the living, just another anonymous face in the crowds of Parisians. Until the day he is recognized by Agathe, a woman who loved him when he was alive.
