Summary
Blending unflinching realism with moments of startling, light-filled beauty, the film finds unexpected philosophical richness in the quotidian, small-town existence of Freddy, an aimless young man with epilepsy who, in his childlike simplicity, embodies both great tenderness and terrifying brutality. Leaving the film's cryptic title tantalizingly open to interpretation, Dumont dares viewers to see the divine in a seemingly dead-end world
