Bad Moon

a film by Méryl Fortunat-Rossi & Xavier Seron

Jean-Paul is different. His father is his mother.
He deeply loves dogs. But he prefers beer.
When the moon is bright, Jean-Paul lit up too.
Tomorrow he won’t remember anything.

« We wanted to start with a plot that seemingly belongs to the pure fantasy genre, and give it a more realistic turn, somewhere between fairytale and farce. It’s a tragicomical portrait of a lonely guy who drunks himself into oblivion and then gets to believe he’s a were-wolf. »
Xavier Seron & Méryl Fortunat-Rossi
