MANON (Court Métrage)

Nazi occupied France - January 1943


Joseph is a young and inexperienced priest whom the Nazis have summoned in the middle of the night to extract a French resistance fighter's confession prior to her execution. He has 10 minutes to choose between his vows to his faith and a terrified woman's last dying wish to be kissed by a man. 


15 minutes of life in 15 minutes of film. 


This somewhat classic concept will allow us to shed light on this utterly human fear of time passing too quickly... in the blink of an eye, the war lord will turn back into the father, the man of God will remember he is but flesh and blood and the heroine will give way to Manon : a frightened maiden who's never been loved. 


It's this urgent humanity, suddenly dwarfing the inhumanity of war that makes Manon a story we feel the need to share with the world.
