Les Mendiants

A Feature film by Benoit Jacquot

Produced by Marion's Films

Release in France : 06/04/1988

    Synopsis

    This symbolic drama underscores the human need for affection. Children steal lemons for the thrill, while women steal other women's men just to prove they can. Drug smuggling, clandestine love affairs, and two lovers involved with the production of Shakespeare's Othello carry on their own off-stage tragedy.
