Not for me
Basil (Thomas Suire), a teenager stuck in a listless corner of the French countryside, becomes convinced that he’ll die if he sleeps another night—and so resolves to stay awake forever. A massacre, a cross-generational love affair, a pool-hall dance, a gaggle of gangsters, a spell of identity-swapping: the rest of Guiraudie’s first full-length feature exists in a fragile, perilous space between reality and dream, at once firmly rooted in the flora, fauna and regional slang of working-class rural France and governed by a strange, magical logic all its own. No Rest for the Brave remains one of Guiraudie’s most adventurous attempts to conflate the extraordinary with the everyday.
