At nightfall

2005

 

Auguste is a shoemaker who knows nothing of holidays. He knows little about life outside his work; away from his workshop, he is worried and afraid.

 

Auguste discovers the water forest. A tiny people occupy this territory where shade and light intermingle. Crazy, tender, tipsy or delicate, their nocturnal dances include rituals in which the creatures turn, jump and frolic in total abandon. The elusive beauty, the casualness and the antic character of the tiny people exercise an undeniable charm on passersby who venture into their world.
