While Dunkirk is in the midst of its Carnival, Larbi, tired of working for nothing for his father, decides to pack it in and re-make his life in the sun of Marseille. When he is waiting for the first train which is to leave in the early hours of the morning, he makes the acquaintance of Béa , who is with her drunk husband. He is straight away captivated by the young woman and she carries him along with her in her passion for the Carnival. The film captures well the character and mad ambience of the extraordinary Dunkirk Carnival. The opinions of the Carnival’s friends however remain divided. Some find the picture given here of the Dunkirk Carnival too negative, while others appreciate the film, which was shot in the midst of the Carnival.
