Alta Villa Contrepoint
ALTA VILLA Contrepoint est une série noire dans un paysage de montagne. Karim est embauché pour l'été dans un hôtel du plateau d'Alta Villa. Il découvre une petite ville fermée sur elle-même et la famille des propriétaires hantée par des histoires passées. Karim va se lier à Faïza, la petite amie du fils du patron.
La crise de ces personnages, entre fuite et violence, trouve sa source, à travers le passé de la guerre d'Algérie, dans le déracinement.
Personnages : 8 H, 3 F et +
France, 1999, an old pied noir (former Algerian colonist) runs a hotel in the mountains with his two sons, Franck and Manu.
The old man is getting drunk on whisky in front of the guests: he reminisces about Algeria, his recent past in the OAS (military secret service) and his wife, Judith...
Karim is the new waiter hired for the summer. Despite the family's racism he seems to fit in well. But something is happening between him and the girlfriend of Frank, the boss's elder son.
As the tension mounts we come to understand that Karim did not come to work here by chance.
He has a question to ask of the boss.
We are plunged into the events that lead up to the final crisis: life in the hotel before the storm...
The text is made up of fragments of a film script or film archive, which try to highlight the details of life in this bar in the mountains.
We feel that everthing is heading for a fatal finale: after the curtain falls, Franck could kill Karim and Faïza, but also, Karim could kill Franck, or Franck kill his father, or maybe none of these murderous intentions will come to fruition - and life will continue on its opaque journey.
Characters : 3 women, 8 men
