François Fournier is a troubled ten-year-old who has been in foster care since he was four. But his is a "temporary placement," meaning that his parents can come back for him any time. They never do. The story begins with François being shuffled from one foster home to another, as his insecurity leads him to engage in increasingly destructive behavior. He is placed with an older couple named Thierry, the newest addition to a ménage that includes Mrs. Thierry's mother, a very young girl, and a high-school age boy. They aren't afraid to share their lives with this new houseguest, and the impressionable boy seems to be settling down. For François, things just are what they are--and he's usually "temporary." A fascinating portrait of childhood, which is also an indictment of a failing social system

Indiqué sur la jaquette : Courbevoie, Suresnes, Saint-Denis, Vincennes, Pantin, canal de l'Ourcq ... Errance "au pays des paysages pauvres", dans la banlieue parisienne de la fin des années 1950. Sur une musique de Georges Delerue qui colle à l'ennui, ce "principal agent d'érosion" des banlieues, Maurice Pialat mène une charge nerveuse (image et commentaire) contre les politiques d'urbanisation intensive, les conditions de vie ouvrière et la déculturation. Dès qu'on passe les portes de Paris, on comptabilise surtout les déficits : en espaces verts, en terrains de jeux, en air respirable, en lieux culturels, en établissements scolaires, en structures sociales et en paysages paisibles où poser et reposer les yeux. La banlieue selon Pialat est une longue énumération : ses hautes cheminées lâchant des fumées glauques, ses gazogènes hideux, ses bagarres entre ados dans des terrains on ne peut plus vagues, la misère et l'ennui de ses grands ensembles, la tristesse et la petitesse de son univers pavillonnaire, sa "culture et sa construction en toc", ses temps de transport interminables pour rejoindre la capitale ... "Un univers de mâchefer, de poussière et de rouille, où il ne fait pas bon rester emprisonné après y être né."
