Widowed and recently retired, he leads a peaceful existence in the company of his dog, his books and his television set. But this quiet routine soon turns into a nightmare, with the onslaught of images from the television, showing the turbulence that shakes the world. / Perfecting some of the animation techniques for which he is famous, Pierre Hébert continues his social reflection in this film shot in Montreal (Canada), Paris and Burkina Faso. With the great French actor Michael Lonsdale as Monsieur Michel and the Burkinabe actor Sotigui Kouyaté. See less
