One of the film genres that is a fond favorite of directors is the ‘director in an emotional crisis’ genre, going all the way from Fellini to James Franco. The gay angle is brought to us by director/actor Antony Hickling, in the role of Richard Barlow, a 40 years old filmmaker who is experiencing an unexplained anxiety attack on the set of his latest film, deserts the set and goes out to wander the Parisian night looking for answers, comfort and inspiration. During that sleepless night he experiences random meetings with strange characters and goes through a few disturbing, sexy and thought provoking events. Until dawn Richard will deal with his fears and doubts about his aspirations.
The independent, alternative director Antony Hickling is giving us his most approachable film yet. The result is a nightly odyssey of a 40+ man searching for meaning of life in downtown Paris.
Also starring Jean-Christophe Bouvet from “Emily in Paris”.
Viewing is 18+.
