Director: Thomas Salvador

78 minutes, France, 2015

Vincent (Thomas Salvador) is a calm and silent individual, blessed with remarkable superpowers – his strength and reflexes dramatically increasing in contact with water! To explore these powers, Vincent moves to an isolated part of the countryside rich with lakes and rivers, when one day, while swimming, he is discovered by Lucie (Vimala Pons) and he immediately falls in love with her.

Salvador both directs and stars in this delightful low budget superhero fantasy, a burlesque comedy echoing the work of actor-directors Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Jacques Tati. (MPR)

Director’s note: An invitation to wonder; playful, poetic and very original. There is magic in this film!
