Macadam Stories

A building in a housing project in Paris. One broken-down elevator. Three encounters between six lonely characters.

In the strange beauty of a cold urban landscape, a stingy old man in a wheelchair goes on a moonlight escapade to meet a lonely night nurse. A troubled actress in decline sparks the fascination of a latchkey teen. And an American astronaut jettisoned from space onto a high-rise rooftop is taken in by a doting mother who speaks no English.

The extraordinary encounters that can be found within ordinary moments drive this darkly humorous story by director Samuel Benchetrit (I Always Wanted to be a Gangster, 2007), as the lonely existances of six solitary people give rise to surprising moments of compassion and intimacy.
