A nightbird, taking a walk every night on the pier in a harbour where he spends its sabbatical. He meets there a young woman waiting for the man of her life.

Paul Vecchiali’s cinema takes as a starting point the French cinema of the 1930s, with an experimental and autobiographical tone. His best-known films are arguably Rosa La Rose and Encore. His films are notably low-budget. In 1987, he became the first director to link AIDS to homosexuality in a French film with his film Encore. He is also known for Wonder Boy – De Sueur et de sang (1994), Once More (1988) and Corps a coeur(1979).
