Neither the sky nor the earth

Afghanistan 2014.
As the withdrawal of the troops approached, Captain Antarès Bonassieu and his platoon were assigned to a control and surveillance mission in a remote valley of Wakhan, bordering Pakistan.
In spite of the determination of Antares and his men, the control of this supposedly calm sector will gradually escape them.
One night, soldiers start to disappear mysteriously in the valley.

This first film, seductive by its way of conceiving itself in the opposite direction of the French canons in terms of the author’s stroke, exalts with a tense magnetism how much the superior necessity of a story is (…).

In a bewitching first feature film that flirts with the metaphysical, cubism and the fantastic, Clément Cogitore films a French regiment in perdition.

Ambitious, the film is ballast. The principles that drive him, first of all the will that carries him to deliver no explanation, place him on a tightrope, from which he has great merit not to tumble.

Transported into real conditions, with real packs and real weapons, the actors take up a famous challenge here: to serve without fail a scenario that plays on two dimensions. Captivating from start to finish.
