The Lovers on the Bridge

The famous Pont-Neuf in Paris is under reconstruction. Alcoholic Alex lives under this bridge. Painter Michèle, who is slowly losing her sight, ends up living on the streets after a series of unfortunate events. When they meet one night, a strong bond forms between them. Their mutual love offers them a refuge in their desolate situation. The making of the film was afflicted by numerous difficulties and bad luck, including Denis Lavant's injury, leading to endless delays and financial losses.
