“Like an accessible form of Paradise lost and found again on weekends, people come to Le Bois to devote themselves to well-being and to find refuge in nature. A place where all assumptions of life have the right to “city”, a place for everyone, rich and poor, French and foreign, gay and straight, old and young, old-fashioned or trendy, a mirage dreamed of by the exhausted city dweller. Le Bois like an island in the urban fabric, like a place where the misfortunes of the city are silent. Here we repair, we play, we have fun, we dream. Over the seasons, the exchanges with each one are as many utopias that each one invents ”.
Claire Simon sharpens her gaze and her singular position in the landscape of contemporary cinema with this new exploration of a territory (the Bois de Vincennes) and the characters who roam and found it (Deleuze included). A gallery of portraits and destinies that she reveals with all her finesse and attention, and which questions the human eco-system.
