Synopsis


Chez les Yéniches, communauté de gens du voyage, le respect des aînés et la ferveur religieuse côtoient indifféremment le vandalisme. Fred Dorkel est l’un d’entre eux : craint et estimé par les siens, il vit du vol de voitures. Une nuit, sa vie bascule : un ange lui apparait. Pour Fred, c’est le signe d’une seconde chance qu’il doit saisir. Il décide de se ranger, mais ce choix va l’opposer à sa famille…

Tënk's opinion


Even if the form of this film ostensibly categorizes it as fiction, we still thought it was vital to show you "La BM du Seigneur" on Tënk. Unbound by any rules linking it to a particular genre, it bolts off with wild abandon in its own direction. If you approach the film from its documentary angle, you can grasp the full poetic scope of the daily life it portrays. Jean Charles Hue films his own people, his family of nomadic travellers, and together they find this ideal form with which to tell their story.
