The Last Gesture (French: Le Dernier Geste), film
Colour 16/9, duration 29'38 min

“A mountain as a place of exile or retreat, characters who have ran out of words, three young brothers as we are told - just like in fairy tales - and a mysterious ritual to be accomplished. Nature offers such opportunities: climbing, building a shelter, lighting a fire... So many actions that appear to be piloted by the future possibility of one ultimate gesture.” Nicolas Feodoroff
