Maryam Goormaghtigh travels through the streets of France with three thirty-something Iranians exiled in the country of Molière. After five years of studying in Paris, Arash is still not used to his new life and plans to return home. Hoping to get him to change his mind, Hossein and Askan convince him to go on a road trip, which would be one last holiday in the sun.
Spontaneity and generosity are the binding thread in this story from beginning to end. AVANT LA FIN DE L’ÉTÉ emanates the sweet, intoxicating perfume of independent comedy – light and sophisticated that, nonetheless, does not succumb to superficiality. The characters are real heroes of our times, confused and unstable, and take on life knowing that there might be no tomorrow. Nothing is permanent, everything is in constant (re)construction – this is what they seem to teach us with humour and a dose of ingenuity that is definitely regenerative. (Muriel Del Don)
