An old woman’s walk.
2. Sun’s Fever (Une dernière cigarette) by Marie Deboissy
Oscar, 17, spends his summer with his mother and Marianne, who is thirty years older than him. This summer, an ardent desire emerges at Oscar for Marianne.
3. The Thundered Man by Valentine Vendroux
Papillon is a man, happy in his unusual job: he is a table man. He offers his services in weddings, banquets and every other kind of receptions. He simply gets down on all fours so he can use his back as a stable support. One day, Papillon is struck by love at first sight. This lightning of love totally shakes him physically and mentally: from now on, he has a huge lightning bolt stuck in his back, that makes it nearly impossible for him to work properly.
