Half Price/Demi-tarif

2004 / 63’

Two sisters and a brother - aged 7, 8, and 9 - live on their own in the metropolis. Abandoned by their mother, they survive to the best of their abilities: stealing, begging, shoplifting… They live their lives the way they imagine it. Le Besco’s rough, but sensitive, camera is there to reveal it the way they experience it. Uncompromising radical cinema. “When we saw À bout de souffle the first time, the message approximately was ‘whatever it is that we‘ve just seen, we had never seen it before on screen’. Since then I have admired many magnificent, moving, innovative movies, but I had never felt that physical sense of freshness and urgency again until Demi-tarif.” (Chris Marker)
