Product Description

From Alessandro Aveillis (Ma Saison Super 8) comes a fresh tale of love and desire set on the streets of modern day Paris. Mathieu, a young man imprisoned in his multiple phobias is under the treatment of his doctor and is afraid of the world outside. Maxence has returned to Paris after years away. He lives day to day on the fringe of society, sleeping on the street and doing what he can for money. Maxence meets Marthe in the park, she has been abused by an unknown assailant.
These three wandering youths create an eccentric set of misfits who share their bed and explore the city together. Each one growing up and growing strong with the help of the others.
Capturing the current economic and social era, the political climate is shown though street demonstrations, protests, posters and graffiti creating a cinematic snapshot of the anxious times we live in.

Alessandro Avellis made if feature film debut with Ma Saison Super 8, a wonderful period piece about the gay rights movement in the 1970's. He follows that up with a slice of life film from the streets of Paris. Avellis uses three main characters, two men and a woman as the crux of the story. They come together to learn to live and each grows up in their own way. But it is the City of Paris that really stars in this film. Short in muted colors, sepia tones or basic black and white the city comes alive in ways not normally presented in most cinema. The dirty underground, begging on the streets, playing for food on the metro, these are all presented in a matter of fact way that is compelling and shocking.
A love story set in the modern world, Paname is a wonderful look into today's youth culture
