This was his first featured film which won many awards including Prix Regards Jeune at the Cannes 2009.
This film had some monetary difficulties during the production because of his young age, a lot of investors declined to invest. But thanks to his co-stars, his life time savings and of course his mother's support, he achieved to complete this amazing film which blows your mind.

Great music by Nicholas Savard-L'Herbier and Luis Mariano's "Maman La Plus Belle du Monde" completes this film.
