François begins to frequent these various friends and acquaintances, and penetrates Rachel’s daytime and noctural habitat. He spies, asks disturbing questions, and fills in the blanks intentionally left by those he questions. His private life, already well complicated by an ex-wife and a mistress with a jealous husband, becomes more complicated by an affair with Clarisse and by problematic relations wih the police when Rachel’s body is found. François takes the blows, dishes some out and little by little puts together a picture of the real Rachel Siprien. Disappear means being eternally reborn”.

La Boîte noire

La Boîte noire

Arthur is left in a coma for several hours after a car accident. While coming to, he raves incoherently, giving free reign to things directly rooted in his unconscious. When conscious again, he’s confronted by a curious dilemma: what was he doing that night on the road near Cherbourg?

Isabelle, one of the nurses at the hospital, noted Arthur’s troubling, disturbing and liberating ramblings in a black notebook. To help him answer his questions, she gives Arthur the notebook, as though offering him a treasure, the written testimony of his delirium.

From that moment on an incredible adventure begins for Arthur; he’ll be the victim, the guilty party and the investigator… of his own life.

Invaded by the traumas of our unconscious, should we nevertheless stamp out the memories that clutter up our minds?

Inception

Inception

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible—inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime.

But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.
