CGiii Comment

Seventeen-year-old Mathieu Reymond lies brutally battered and raped in a field of reeds. It is only after his release from hospital that the memories come back, unannounced and fragmentary, but still so precise that regular meetings with two police officers not only allow the perpetrator’s identikit image to take shape, but also the chronology of the crime itself. Life in Mathieu’s small middle-class town, however, continues seemingly untouched. In detached houses, mothers discover fitness and microwave food; while Walkmen, flirting and ‘Mad Max’ determine the everyday lives of young people. Mathieu is initially left to deal with his trauma on his own.
