Based on real events -an ordinary man who one day walked into the Catalonian mountains of Ripollés never to return – this movie could have been a thriller, or a psychological drama, or a social claim, or…just the opposite as Christophe Farnarier places himself in front of curious facts, with patience, understanding and picturing the character’s everyday acts as if he didn’t care to understand his motivations, but simply follow his steps to see where they lead him. This is an honest and brave work which humbly acquires epic dimensions. Catalan premiere
