Etoile Violette

France, 2005 (MIFF 2008, International Panorama)

Director: Axelle Ropert

Etoile Violette

Living a peaceful life in his shop, 30-something Alexandre (Serge Bozon) spends his days working meticulously in his tailor shop and listening to his radio. With no one to talk to, he soon becomes restless and decides to banish his loneliness by taking an evening French literature class for adults where he encounters Jean Jacques Rousseau (played by 60s counterculture icon Lou Castel).
