Burning Ghost | Vif Argent (N/C 15+)

Winner of the prestigious Prix Jean Vigo, Stéphane Batut’s second feature is a beautifully made observation of love, loss and death. Juste (newcomer Thimotée Robart) wanders the streets of Paris looking for people only he can see. He collects their last memory before helping them into the afterlife. One day Agathe (Judith Chemla), a young woman, recognises him. She belongs to his previous life. She is alive and he is a ghost. How will they manage to love each other and seize this second chance? The script maintains a tricky balance between a form of contemporary urban realism and the land of the supernatural.

Cast Thimothée Robard, Judith Chemla, Djolof Mbengue

“Elegantly combines a story straight out of The Sixth Sense with a sensual, downbeat romance.” – Hollywood Reporter
