Only a few years after their “Modern Times Trilogy”, Nicolas Klotz and Elisabeth Perceval address again the French immigration boom of the new millennium and the brutal actions of the Ministry of Immigration and National Identity through a hard and scratchily poetic depiction of a group of young Parisian squatters. Like the generational protagonists of Bresson, Godard, Garrel or Eustache, the gang featured in Low Life –which includes both illegal aliens and French citizens who ran away from their homes– seems to move on a different area of society; a clandestine level also crossed by an oversized, up-for-anything morality influenced by the same authors who fuel the film’s dialogues (Artaud, Baudelaire, Rilke, Blanchot, etc.). And so, Klotz and Perceval’s young people in revolt resists the attacks coming from their environment on all fronts, and debates, strolls around, parties, gets drunk, and falls in love turning its back to the first world. Aware of the dangers included in this new social contract signed with an ultra-technological yet not fearful modernity.
