Wall To Wall

  • France

“Nobody leaves his village willingly,” says Antonio, sitting in his armchair. He left Sardinia to come and bury himself alive in a coal mine in Belgium.To the country that welcomed him, and of which he speaks with respect, he has given eight children, “eight good Belgians”, as he likes to repeat. Patric Jean has met several individuals like Antonio during his journey through Europe. Exceptional encounters, true exchanges with people who tell him, with lumps in their throats, or with gusts of laughter, why they emigrated. They describe their families, their houses, their friends they have left to come to France, or Germany, to Spain or Belgium. Camera on his shoulder, the filmmaker begins his tour in Berlin, in front of the vestiges of a wall that regale the tourists, finishing at Ceuta in front of a wall with barbed wire, where clandestine immigrants still die today, impaled on the iron.The luckiest among them are taken back into the Moroccan desert, without food or water. In the fashion of a road movie, the travel sequences by train, ship or car, are accompanied with an original score byTom McClung, an American jazz pianist. Without ridiculing the sometimes cruel stories of the protagonists, the music emphasizes the nostalgia they feel when evoking their past and their new life.

French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch subtitles are available for download only in DVD format.
