Continental, a Film without Guns / Stéphane Lafleu

A man wakes up on a bus. Night has fallen. He gets off the bus and finds himself alone. The bus has stopped at the edge of a forest. On the other side, the road is veiled by darkness. From the forest he hears sounds – nighttime forest sounds. After much hesitation, the man enters the forest, disappearing into the darkness. Four people’s lives will be affected by this man’s disappearance: his wife, who anxiously awaits his return; a young father whose relationship with his wife is going through confusing times; a hotel receptionist who dreams of sharing her life with someone else; and an ex-gambler confronted by the realities of aging. Although told separately, these stories end up intersecting and mirroring each other.
