Akoibon

A Feature film by Édouard Baer

Produced by Gemini Films, Les Productions en Cabine

Release in France : 13/04/2005

    Synopsis

    Nader, a petty crook, is obliged to go to a tiny island in the south to try and flush out Chris Barnes, the former jet-set king and friend to the stars, who a mysterious partner wants to trap. Daniel has suddenly dumped wife and many kids to come to the island to meet the enigmatic young woman he’s been writing to for ages over the Internet. On the way, Daniel and Nader decide to switch identities, convinced that it will help them achieve their goals.
    In the hotel run by Barnes, who reigns like a hysterical dictator over his daughters and his constantly humiliated son-in-law, everyone tries to take a vacation or achieve their mission, but no one is really what they seem.
    Each passing day causes more trouble in Daniel’s life and costs Nader, taken hostage, another finger. Between madness, mockery, deeply fake feelings and sincere manipulations, the affair quickly and radically degenerates, up until a huge surprise right at the end.
