short film – 15′ – 2018


1936. Le Havre. Jeannot meets Léon, a young adolescent who mistakes him for a vacationer. But Jeannot is not on a vacation, he has just returned to France after 65 years of touring the world. Léon reminds him of the enthusiastic Parisian boy he once was, so he tells him about the battles he fought in 1871 during the Commune, and then his quest for a perfect world. Even if he never found the better world he dreamed of, Jeannot continues to hope for it with all his remaining strength.
