A homeless man fills up bottles at a fountain. Joggers, cyclists and football players get their daily exercise. A dancer who hasn’t been to bed turns the lawn into his dancefloor. Cambodians living in exile celebrate the new year. A prostitute shows her imaginary room at a brothel. A voyeur explains himself, a former parachute jumper gives a tour of his fitness room and Emilie Deleuze is forced to admit that there is nothing left of the university where her father used to teach philosophy. In the Bois du Vincennes, a city forest shaped into a landscape park, Claire Simon comes across a broad spectrum of different people. For a whole year, she is there day and night, observing, asking questions and expressing her flaneur-esque thoughts in voiceover. The forest turns out to be a paradise that can be accessed with the Metro. (bik)
