Directed by Fleur Albert | 2012

With Jean-Patrick Kone, Carole Eugénie, Jean-Paul Edwiges

Acclaimed documentarian Fleur Albert’s lyrical, narrative feature debut chronicles the precarious lives of crack addicts in Paris’ Stalingrad Metro station. Inspired by the true stories of its remarkable cast of nonprofessional actors, this stunningly photographed neorealist film noir follows Isaïe as he strives to make good on his promise to return his recently deceased friend Medhi back to his native Senegal and recover outstanding debts from his clients. Depicting the agony of poverty and addiction with striking immediacy, Stalingrad Lovers also captures moments of compassion and tenderness that keep hope alive in this marginalized community.
