Les Amants du Pont-Neuf (1991)
An unusual love story set on the Pont-Neuf bridge in Paris.
Two young homeless people are living with an older vagrant on the Pont-neuf while it is closed for repairs; Alex, a fire-eating punk and Michele, a young painter who is slowly going blind. Alex is afraid that Michele will leave him if she has treatment to regain her sight and so keeps her virtually as a prisoner. The film portrays the harshness of life on the streets juxtaposed with stunning backdrops of the skies and waterways of Paris.
in French, with English subtitles.
