    When Marie-Pierre hitches a ride with Gaston, he can't believe such a gorgeous girl would have time for a guy like him.

His business is booming and the woman of his dreams is by his side. But fame and fortune can change overnight. What goes around, comes around. Will it come around for Gaston?

    About

    Ravalec the writer has made a moviemaker of himself, by choice and by necessity, converting his own words, from “Melody for a Hustler”, into pictures. He roams the borderlands of marginality, lovingly depicting its fissures and cunningly zooming in on the underside of a society crawling with char-acters in search of respectability. With his incisive tone, unkempt humor and harsh, raw, cutting style, Ravalec takes a new broom to French cinema. Money, grunge, survival tactics, dreams, fantasies, detours up the alleys of perversions blatant and covert, redemption and greed all rub shoulders, fueling the movements and actions of his frantic, anchorless, endearingly washed-up heroes: a mind-blowing Yvan Attal and a feisty Virginie Lanoue. (“Le Figaroscope”, October 14th 1998)
