Les Marchands de sable

A Feature film by Pierre Salvadori

Produced by Les Films Pelléas, Agat Films & Cie / Ex Nihilo

Release in France : 05/07/2000

    Synopsis

    Two cafes face each other in a modest square in the heart of a Parisian neighborhood. Here drugs are bought and sold. Deals enforced and slot machines installed.
    Money changes hands. The neighborhood’s young folk are the main players in this dirty game; they make a few bucks and risk losing their lives. Mild-mannered Alain watches the world from behind his bar. He’s slow to understand exactly what’s going on, even slower to react.
    That is until a young woman, Marie, bursts into his café and pleads with him to help her find the men who have killed her brother…
