The Town is Quiet

The Town is Quiet

A Feature film by Robert Guédiguian

Produced by Agat films - Ex nihilo

Release in France : 17/01/2001


    It's the story of Michèle the fishmonger whose only goal in life is to save her daughter from drug addiction.
    ... of Paul who betrays his striking docker friends to become a taxi driver.
    ... of Viviane, a musician, who can no longer stand the realistic Left Wing epitomized by her husband.
    ... of Abdermane, transformer by time in jail, who wants to help his brothers.
    ... of Claude who can't get the Extreme Right to listen to him.
    ... of Gérard whose attitude toward death (his own and others') is a mystery.
    ... of Paul's parents who are retired and will never vote again.
    ... of Ameline, whose body gives off a sense of good health that she wants to pass onto others by reminding them of their pre-monotheist origins.
    < ... of Sarkis who fights for the grand piano of his dreams...
    These individual, overlapping stories occur at the same time and in the same place : Marseilles in the year 2000. Faced with an ever-increasing sense of meaninglessness and confusion, they testify that "the city is not quiet".
