Beauté, c'est ta tête Série-Collection : Villes temporaires

Collectif ZimmerFrei
2014 - 60 min - HD - Couleur - Italie, France

Sometimes a piece of graffiti glimpsed on a faded wall is enough to evoke an idea for a film. La Beauté c’est ta tête, for example: an enigmatic aphorism hastily scribbled not far from a bar rooted in the heart of Noailles, the oldest district of Marseilles. A bar so tiny it’s like "your mother’s womb", as one of the locals describes it. They don’t talk about philosophy here, but there are lots of stories floating around, because alcohol is doing the talking, creating a readiness to let oneself start sliding down the slippery slope. Lame ducks, who could have become thugs but are instead postal workers, these sons and daughters of drifters from all over, tossed around like nutshells by the waves of life, who rest a while on these grey imitation leather seats, their bodies pitching about in this drunken boat which is also their home port. The city is changing. It remains a slightly wild "stranger" that the Zimmerfrei collective explores, in the company of these Bukowski-like night birds who still dream of the open seas and struggle to adjust to the ongoing gentrification of Marseilles.
