Mousse Movie Poster

Synopsis

Mousse is a medium length droll and blackly comic tale of an “honest criminal” and police ineptitude.

Through the enigmatic but engaging lead character Mousse, we are invited to empathies with his position of seeming desperation that leads him to a petty criminal act.

In the face of his existential motivations, we see the real pettiness of contemporary society, where small time gambling and scrambling for small financial rewards battle for supremacy against bigger, ethical issues; where the inanities of a police force that represent the state and authority demonstrate the ridiculous nature of order and control.

Salomea’s Nose

Synopsis:

Salomea remembers the day her beloved brothers, Max and Karl, disfigured her and themselves for life. The Day of Tragedy, is what their mother called it, and blamed it on the fate of her children. Though fate and tragedy have a different meaning by the end of her tale. A tragicomedy about sibling rivalry, disfigurement and the pain that binds us.
