A Violent Life

1h 53mDrama2017

Thierry de Peretti’s second feature — which premiered as a special screening in Cannes Critics Week— focuses on the violent nationalist struggle that wracked his native island, Corsica, throughout the 1990s. In this climate, Stéphane goes to Paris, fleeing from his past in those conflicts. The death of a former comrade brings back memories of how in the ‘90s he went from being a middle-class youth with aspirations to becoming radicalized and turning his life into a constant persecution. He has to decide whether to go to the funeral or not, a dilemma that could cost him his life
