"Paco is a Spanish shoe salesman - husky, handsome, and irresistible to women. Nino is a Russian drifter - slight, sensitive, and unlucky in love. When the two men's paths collide on a French roadway, it causes a chain of hilarious events that strips Paco of his car and his job and send Nino into the hospital. With no money and no direction, the odd couple hitchhikes across the countryside. But after several misadventures, including a madcap escapade involving a chainsaw, a wheelbarrow, and one very angry farmer, the two outsiders begin to forge a lasting friendship"--Container

"Marion examines each choice that Marion Crane made in Psycho that leads to her premature and unconventional death less than half way through the film. If Marion had decided not to steal money from her boss would she have been able to escape the shower attack? Marion offers three variations on the Psycho narrative so that we may explore the larger concept of character and narrative conventions in cinema."--Ry Russo-Young

Le sang des fraises( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[...] Dans cette parenthèse estivale, il y a d'abord celle de Victor, adolescent en rupture, solitaire et désabusé, et de Violette, jolie veuve, en mal de maternité, qui a trop vite enfoui sa douleur. Il y a aussi celle de Victor avec ses " collègues ", ados blessés, en attente d'un ailleurs. Chacun se regarde, se jauge, se provoque. Des liens se tissent. Manuel Poirier filme avec une rare délicatesse la retenue des sentiments, le non-dit, préférant - à l'image de Victor - l'intimité d'un geste ou d'un sourire à la parole. [...] " Le Sang des fraises " vibre d'une émotion ténue, au rythme de ses personnages, peu à peu soudés par une même quête d'amour. (Télérama)
