Demi-Tarif. 2003.

Demi-Tarif. 2003.
FR. Demi-tarif est un film français écrit et réalisé par Isild Le Besco et sorti en 2003.
Isild Le Besco avait 16 ans quand elle a écrit le scénario.
Demi-tarif relate la vie d'une fratrie de trois enfants vivant seuls dans un appartement. Leur mère s'est absentée pendant plusieurs mois et ils doivent se débrouiller seuls. Ils n'aiment pas aller à l'école. Ils n'aiment pas dormir quand la ville dort. Ils aiment se promener dans Paris la nuit. Ils aiment aller au cinéma. Ils jouent à être des princes ou des princesses. Ils aiment sortir et vivre nus la nuit pour attraper froid. Ils aiment chiper des pommes ou des bonbons. Ils s'inventent une vie loin du monde des adultes.
EN. Actress Isild Le Besco (Girls Can't Swim) makes her feature debut as a director with Demi-Tarif (Half-Price). The movie, shot on digital video on a miniscule budget, garnered attention in its native France after renowned filmmaker Chris Marker compared the experience of seeing it to the experience he and his friends had upon seeing Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless for the first time. Demi-Tarif follows the low-key adventures of three young siblings, Romeo (Kolia Litscher), Launa (Lila Salet), and the youngest, Leo (Cindy David), left on their own in a rundown Paris apartment. One of them narrates, wistfully explaining how their mother abandoned them and calls them once in a while to see how they are doing or tell them she loves them. The three kids do as they please, roaming the streets, running out of restaurants without paying for food, and shoplifting from the local grocery store. They eat whatever and whenever they want, gorging themselves on sweets. They beg for change on the Metro and show up late for school in tattered, dirty clothes. All the while, they try to keep the fact that they are alone a secret from the world of adults. Demi-Tarif had its U.S. premiere at the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival.
