A World Without Pity 1990


Also knows as Love Without Pity, Eric Rochant’s haunting film is an existential drama of great charm and imagination Hippo (Hippolyte Giradot) is a dissolute young Parisian, so in tune with his city that the Eiffel tower lights up at the snap of his finger. But Hippo is also a master at dodging responsibility, and a combination of his brother’s gambling habit, his own low-level drug-dealing and a romance with Natalie (Mireille Perrier) lead him to a crisis that he refuses to deal with. Predating Generation x, X and Z, this is a smartly filmed drama of live around the Sorbonne, sympathetic to the dissolute behavior of youth, but also savvy enough to point out the dangers of self-absorption.
