Lucas is 17 when his teenage world is suddenly shattered. He views his life as a wild animal in need of taming. Between a brother settled in Paris and a mother with whom he now lives alone, Lucas will to have to fight to rediscover hope and love.
He arrived in Paris in the 1990s, where he began working in cinema. After debuting with the short film Nous deux (2001), his feature films show him as a very personal creator, with a taste marked by a certain pop romanticism, and with an extraordinary ability to integrate his idols into his particular and very recognizable imaginary. D’A dedicated a retrospective to him in 2019.
