All of a sudden Vincent, a graphic designer, is the victim of repeated and inexplicable agressions. By his colleagues or passers by on the street, simple eye contact with him triggers murderous fury in others.
A first feature film by the director, this unhinged movie, rich with succulent dialogs, unreels in an absurd tone an apparently insane premise, with an inexorable, viral, almost orgiastic element that is alas its most realistic trait, like a magnifying mirror of the violence of our world. From fights to carnage, Castang, supported by two formidable actors, manages to make us laugh and touch us, in this hallucinating world where the eyes, now a threat, no longer help people make contact. The humor of despair.
