Stricteternum

France (MIFF 2005, fiction)

Director: Didier Fontan

A young family is trapped in a world of endless monotony, but discover that their existence and escape are at the hands of a larger force. This abstract and dreamlike film is rich with Jeunet-esque characters and offbeat French humour.
