Alexandre the Fool
A film by Pedro Pires
4.99 $ – 15.00 $
Ten years after a psychotic event on the South China Sea flipped his life upside down, Alex, a sensitive, refined and schizophrenic man is at a crossroads. His grand-mother and confidant, who would like to die the soul in peace, insists that he tries to find a girlfriend. His encounter with a young psychotic woman gives birth to an ardently passionate relationship, making him slowly drift away from his usual emotional boundaries. While the troubled waters of the South China Sea well up in his mind, he gradually isolates himself, at risk of being swallowed by paranoia’s unfathomable abyss. An intimate odyssey, troubling and sublime.
“Alexander the Fool is a lot, much more than just a beautiful cinematographic object. It’s first and foremost a whole poignant human odyssey.”
