The Smell of Us
(FRA 2014, 92’, French)
Every day, the skateboarders Math, Marie, Pacman, JP, Guillaume and Toff meet on the terraces behind the Palais de Tokyo, the Paris art center that overlooks the Eiffel tower and the Seine. They are as little interested in the cultural life of their neighborhood as they are in the old drunkard (Larry Clark) who lives among them. Instead, they concentrate on having fun, making love and getting high. Fleeing from their often complicated families, they live for the moment and earn fast money through Internet dating, while Toff is filming everything.
