C'EST DÉJÀ L'ÉTÉ by Martijn Maria Smits
C'est deja l'ete - A family tries to survive their daily lives

C'est déjà l'été

C'EST DÉJÀ L'ÉTÉ tells the story of a family barely able to survive. Jean has been fired from his job but is too ashamed to tell his kids. Marie has a baby - she seems to be having sex with everybody in town except her boyfriend. Eric should go to school, but prefers to spend his time with friends with their mopeds, pranks and fake guns. The three only seem able to communicate when they need something from each other (90', video).
