co-produced with:France, Germany
Maloin leads a simple life without prospects at the edge of the infinite sea; he barely notices the world around him, has already accepted the slow and inevitable deterioration of life around him and his all but complete loneliness.
When he becomes a witness to a murder, his life takes a sudden turn.
He comes face to face with issues of morality, sin, punishment, the line between innocence and complicity in a crime, and this state of scepsis leads him to the ontological question of the meaning and worth of existence.
The film is about desire, man�s indestructible longing for a life of freedom and happiness, about illusions never to be realised � about things that give all of us energy to continue living, to go to sleep and get up day after day� Maloin�s story is ours � all of those who doubt and are able to question our humdrum existence.
Based on the novel L'homme de Londres by Georges Simenon
