Enfer et contre tous

Enfer et contre tous

| 51 min

Document vérité : rage, frustration, désespoir, trois mots qui reviennent sans cesse dans les propos des jeunes de la rue. Ils évoquent aussi, pourtant, les sentiments des parents des toxicomanes. C'est pour eux que la cinéaste a voulu réaliser ce film et revivre son propre passé. Andrée Cazabon s'est attachée au parcours de Cathy et Laurent. Elle les a suivis de longs mois sans rien cacher de leur existence ravagée ni des rechutes qu'ils accumulent.
