Douze mille

Twelve Thousand

After losing his black-market job in a breaker’s yard and believing that his partner Maroussia could never love him like before, Frank leaves in a bid to earn the same amount that Maroussia makes in a year: twelve thousand euros, the bare minimum required. Frank and Maroussia live their lives following their own instincts and rules, uninterested in the judgements meted out by society. @Twelve Thousand@ is a film from another world which transports us far away from the desolation of daily life, towards a mysterious world where the immediacy of the moment is all that counts. (Muriel Del Don, Cineuropa)
