A Sort of Fresh Grass Scent

France, 1995 (MIFF 1996, Fiction)

Director: Marie Vermillard

An award winning short that captures with poetic precision a sense of place and character in a barber shop over a fifteen year period on a quiet Paris street. Reminiscent of Paul Auster, and possibly in an oblique sense a homage to Jaques Tati for the street of the coiffure homme has a life all its own Le Smoke perhaps. (SC)
