BEYOND THE WALLS [Hors les murs]

A drunken night out leads to a passionate affair between silent film accompanist Paulo (Matila Malliarakis) and loner bass player Ilir (Guillaume Gouix, COPACABANA, 2010 AFI European Union Film Showcase) in this intimate drama. Kicked to the curb by his girlfriend, Paulo shows up at Ilir's doorstep, belongings in tow. Wary of allowing a fling to develop into something more, Ilir's hesitancy gives way to affection as the two men spend time together. But are they cut out for the long haul? This well-observed romance features great chemistry and captivating performances. Official Selection, 2012 Cannes, Karlovy Vary Film Festivals.
