Anna's Trip

France, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Fiction)

Director: Guillaume Bréaud

15 year old Anna misses the last train home, and finds herself stranded in Paris. A cautious stranger, Felix, passes by, and Anna manages to convince him to take her back to his flat. Felix reveals he is not as reticent as he originally seemed. In fact, he is nothing like he originally seemed. They share a surreal, giddy night together, which culminates in one of the oddest and original endings a short film could hope for.
