De la Guerre
A film by Bertrand Bonello
Bertrand, a film-maker approaching forty, slightly disconnected from the world, find himself shut in a coffin for the night following a certain set of circumstances. In the morning, he is no longer the same.
He rethinks his life, and decides to follow a man to an isolated part of the world, The Kingdom, which is ruled by a mysterious and charismatic woman called Uma. There, people of all ages reside in a warrior-type hierarchy and seem to be living in a happy autarchy...
