Michel Houellebecq in Near Death Experience – The poetry film by Gustave Kervern and Benoît Delépine
You know Michel Houellebecq? The writer and poet considered to be one of the most important in French literature? Bizarre and controversial, with a face that is easily forgotten. He is the protagonist of “Near Death Experience” by French filmmakers Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern. The film tells the story of Paul, a cable company employee whose company is in the process of closing ,who, on a Friday 13th, decides to make a thought come true and flees the mountains where he will live a unique experience. Michel Houellebecq is ironic, melancholic and true in this film and has given life to the words of the two directors: confronting death, nothing is more beautiful than the truth.
