On his train journey from Germany to Paris, Mathias has a few very peculiar encounters and then finds a horrifying package in his luggage. He starts investigating, which leads him to the world of secret services. Arnaud Desplechin's first feature is a very succinct, minimalist drama with elements of absurdity. Probably the strangest espionage film you've ever seen.
