JIO MAMI!! International Competition Movies at Mumbai Film Festival 2016

Director: Jérôme Reybaud
Country: France | Year: 2016

Disillusioned with his life in Paris, Pierre Tomas drops everything to travel through France. Through phone numbers written in bathroom stalls, coincidental rendezvous and Grindr, a smartphone app, he never ceases to find a parking spot for the car he so dearly maneuvers. As he wanders the country for four days and four nights, his lover, Paul, will try to find him, using the same app that compasses Pierre. In a game of absurdist cat and mouse, these two lovers try, in their own ways, to find their way back to one another.
