End of season

Well, after one and half a year of tour, and 21 selections, I think it's time for NOIR TOTAL to end festival tour.
So it won't play anymore in festivals (except on invitations), but while waiting for an eventual distribution, you can already watch the film online for a dozen of days on DVDALLIANCE.
This is a famous French DVD news website, and they present the film with english subtitles.
A big thanks to Zast!

Mini Review

Here is an extract from a mini-review of NOIR TOTAL, made after Nashville screening:

"Some stand outs for me were The Morning After, Ng, and Noir Total."
"In Noir Total, a man wakes in his apartment with a massive hangover and a dead girl in his bathtub. Not remembering what happened, he calls a friend for help. This French short film is filled with twists and turns and having the word Noir in the title is fitting. If you like French mystery and horror, then you’re sure to enjoy this one. "
