Nenette et Boni

a film by :Claire Denis

Boni, short for Boniface, is a 19 year old pizza-maker. Living in Marseille, he works at the port. Since his mother's death, Boni won't have anything to do with his father, Felix, a lampshade dealer who takes care of Boni's 15 year old sister Nénette. Boni's life quickly falls into routine - pizzas, dreaming, dealing with the people in his insular world. He falls in love but this love leaves him more isolated. He waits, stuck in the humdrum existence of his familiar world, only escaping to his dreams which carry him off. One day Nénette jumps the schoolyard wall and arrives at her brother's home - a little house his mother left him, invading his private space, his bastion, his protective dream world.

French Synopsis :

Boniface, dit Boni, 19 ans, pizzaïole au port de Marseille, ne veut plus entendre parler de son père Félix depuis la mort de sa mère. Félix, marchant d'abat-jour, s'est occupé de Nénette, 15 ans, la soeur de Boni. Boni se laisse flotter dans sa petite routine, les pizzas, les rêveries, son quartier. Un amour qui le rend encore plus seul. Il attend, planqué dans la moiteur de son nid, que son désir l'emporte enfin. Boni rêve. Nénette enjambe le mur du collège, elle débarque chez son frère envahissant la baraque qu'il a hérité de leur mère, son repli, son bastion fictif.
