Synopsis

How much can we learn about a man if we are left the time it takes for him to cross a road by foot? He looks to the left, to the right... He sees an ambulance. He looks downwards. What is he thinking about? Thousand of ideas seem to be running through his head. How does he feel? How can one breathe when at any moment a car could pass and strike us down? There are real threats and others only in mind. To get to the other side, one cannot forget what is happening in the street. It's necessary to keep our feet firmly on the ground! We feel better when we are on the other side, more at ease? Yes but... it's starting all over again!!!

Synopsis fr Combien peut-on apprendre d’un homme, si on nous laisse le temps d’observer le temps qu’il met à traverser une rue ? il regarde à gauche, puis à droite... il voit une ambulance. il regarde vers le bas. a quoi pense-t-il? mille idées semblent lui passer par la tête. que ressent-il ? comment peut-on respirer lorsqu’à tout moment une voiture peut nous bousculer? il y a des menaces vraies et des menaces simplement dans la tête. pour atteindre l’autre côté, il ne faut pas oublier ce qu’il passe dans la rue, il faut garder les pieds par terre ! on se sent mieux lorsqu’on est de l’autre côté, plus tranquille ? oui mais... ça recommence
