    Ten-year-old Martin Sauvier, code name "Marty," one day opens the bedroom door of Antoine Berrant, an elderly resident in a geriatric ward. The mute, paralyzed man spends most of his time trying to remember his past now overtaken by Alzheimer's disease.

    Words may not be useless, but they can’t say everything. There’s something more. Another language. With adults, the lines of communication are pre-established. But a kid won’t necessarily react to the same codes as us. So it was interesting to work on the idea of a kid who, thanks to his sensitive awareness and imagination, can not only communicate with an old man but can even lead him to communicate with others. I have a positive, optimistic philosophy. My two characters are incredibly strong. Marty’s world is a world full of life, of a kid who wants to laugh and have fun.
