Fiction / 19min
Rudy is on the ropes. Alone at the building yard, alone at home – what keeps him living are ball games in the evening and the team play with his friend Martin. When Asim, a bright and sprouting apprentice, appears at the building yard, this friendship gets tested. Rudy must take a decision.
Bricks and Blocks is not afraid to assert a certain taste for classicism, in order to subtly carve out the friendship that develops between a grumpy tiler and a young boy of Yugoslav origin in the middle of an immersion course on a building site. At once a story of friendship, love and filiation, the film offers a beautiful space to the actors and the characters they embody.
