Charly

Charly

Nicolas,14-year-old adolescent, not particularly brilliant at school and ill at ease with his elderly foster parents, accidentally lays his hands on a play by Wedekind. A postcard is folded into the book as a bookmark. On its front we see the sea at Belle-Ile-en-Mer. In the cheerless life of this solitary, gangling young man, a fierce desire is born. Nicolas, in all regards the personification of an adolescent who is on the brink of transition to adulthood and has no idea who he will become, steals some money and hitchhikes towards the coast. He gets stranded somewhere along the way and meets the young prostitute Charly, who is a few years older and only seems to have a more developed identity. Direct, over-organised and bossy, she allows the kid into her life.
