When thirtysomething deadbeat Marc Châtaigne (played by the irresistible Vincent Macaigne) snags an internship with a French government ministry, he is surprised to learn that his assignment is to launch a ski resort in tropical French Guyana. Naturally, once in Guyana, everything that could go wrong goes way wrong: the resort site is overgrown, a dogged tax collector is on Marc’s heels, and an encounter with local guerillas propels Marc deep into the jungle, where he proceeds to get lost and have a close encounter with a boa constrictor—not to mention some hairy spiders. Luckily, he is accompanied by the beautiful and savvy Tarzan, a scrappy beauty played by the ever excellent Vimala Pons… Relentlessly inventive and popping with sight gags and dead-on one-liners, STRUGGLE FOR LIFE is a riotous send-up of an aging France buried in administrative absurdities, a deeply eccentric take on the state of the nation that gives way to an offbeat, sensual love story.
CAMPO DE VIBORAS - In a small Portuguese village, a tragedy occurred. An old lady is found dead in her garden, surrounded by snakes, while her 40 year-old daughter, Lurdes, fled without telling anyone.
