Locked into a transparent cube that contains nothing but a fridge and a few angular objects, a skinny woman is confronted with an enemy: the soft, undefined form. It arrives in the shape of a chicken egg that the woman is supposed to eat, because that’s what her diet plan which commands her to gain weight says. The egg provokes desire and panic at the same time. Eating it is nothing less than the worst case scenario.

Everything begins with a woman looking from a circus caravan at the magician and his rabbit in the snow. The look is followed by bathing in the nude, a wedding feast as gay as a fair, then the easy companionship of vaulting circus acrobats. All this is conjured out of the hat of the past and the future – because this is about love that lasts a lifetime. Roberto Catani celebrates great and small moments under twinkling stars in a tender and melancholy whirl of colours.

The eighties, UK: three mates move to Liverpool to study art. Their leader is Shirley, the cool pub quiz champion. But he soon turns out to be a delinquent flatmate, the back rent is piling up, the rough tone becomes bullying: itching powder in underpants, the love interest seduced by another at a party. The mates are in the shit at all levels. How far can they still go? Who will surrender first?

In juggling the flying objects seem connected by an invisible thread; the same kind on which these stories are threaded, in which someone strings pinned spiders in a chain, someone else is carried through a dark forest in a box. Then there is the strand of muscles and intestines from which flows a red scarf that a girl wears round her neck. Mysterious, uncanny goings-on – seemingly insane, but quite normal.

Is youth really the best time of our life? The students of the Lycée in Roubaix mostly feel stressed and pressured, afraid they won’t meet the demands of our performance society. Director Touati creates a cinematic space in which they can open up and describe their worries and hopes. A touching moment of honesty that raises the question of what a school that does not anticipate social pressures would have to look like.
