"Ultra-cool Fonn Baeo and his lover Moulousse spend a carefree day in the city. Reuniting with an old acquaintance, however, brings an unexpected twist to their charmed lives. Will their luck run out, or will love prevail?"
Premiering at the 2010 Starz Denver Film Festival, Ba Naché dol Fonn Baeo is a foreign film. But unlike other foreign films, this one is foreign to everyone no matter what their nationality. Because the entire dialog of this film is in no known language; it was a language made up on the spot, improvised on the fly by the actors. Only after the final edit were subtitles written and added. Walking the delicate line of both paying homage to and spoofing the New Wave of French Cinema from the early 1960s, Ba Naché dol Fonn Baeo is stylish, hilarious and wonderfully melodramatic.
Beautifully shot in B&W by Brook Aitken, cinematographer of the 2010 Oscar-winning documentary The Cove, it follows ultra-cool Fonn Baeo and his lover Moulousse as they spend a carefree day playing in the city. Reuniting with an old acquaintance, however, brings an unexpected twist to their seemingly charmed lives. Will their luck run out, or will love prevail?
Ba Naché dol Fonn Baeo is a story of love, jealousy, friendship and betrayal told in a manner that would make Godard, Truffaut and Melville proud. Or possibly throw up.
