Marie, Nonna, la Vierge et moi

A Feature film by Francis Renaud

Produced by Le Bureau

Release in France : 26/01/2000

    Synopsis

    In a mining valley somewhere in France's Lorraine region, Tonio, Jeff and Chico, are looking to hustle and make a buck by organizing raves. Tonio, 23, and Marie, 18, are in love. He's a mechanic, she works in town and caters to her mother, Nonna, a Romanian immigrant who's become an alcoholic recluse. On Marie's birthday, Nonna tells her that her father isn't who she thinks he is. From that moment on, Tonio and Marie are hell-bent on getting away from the daily grind of the dead-end valley. Thanks to Tonio and his friends, dreams may become reality. They organize a huge underground rave and start stealing cars: a great way to leave… and make some money… All of them want to believe that their plans will succeed, but then Céline shows up on the scene. She's Tonio's ex, and she's ready to do anything to get him back, which might just jeopardize everything…

    About

    I had one film in mind all during the shooting: “Rebel Without a Cause.” My characters are Rimbaud-like, they’re dark angels. They’re at the age when everything is possible, the age of dreams, rebellion, when you can still get out. Afterwards, it’s too late. If you stay behind, you waste your life. I started running away when I was twelve. But this film represents my first real escape.
