‘A small plan…how to save the planet’, so caustic innocence

interpreters: Laetitia Casta, Louis Garrel, Joseph Engel

premiere: Friday, April 22, 2022


french actor Louis Garrel has directed three feature films and plays the same character in all three, Abel. In ‘Two Friends’, he was the friend of a young man who was hopelessly in love with an unapproachable girl. She has a partner in ‘A loyal man’ but leaves him at the beginning of the story for her best friend, who dies a few years later. In ‘A little plan…how to save the planet’, Abel returns to the woman who left him (director’s partner Laetitia Casta) and they are looking after her son from a deceased friend. But if the first two movies had a similar tone, this is the third movie. An absolute and pleasant challenge for cinematographic times running. hard at first ‘only’ 67 minutesIt’s unheard of and a film as small as it is clear about environmentalism, commitment and generation gap.

Premise enviable, pure ‘naive’: the couple’s son, like many other children in the world, sold his most prized possessions, to get the money to pay for an environmental adventure in Africa to save the planet that adults see as a joke. Garrel cleverly carries this crazy premise. The film has images that seem like metaphors for the near term. Pandemica pleasantly tragicomic tone and an innocence that does not contradict with bitterness.
