Tempation of the Absolute (La Tentation de l'absolu), 2012, 108'
After the Bible's Ecclesiastes
With Puruen Kang
French only

In the title of this movie, it is important not to hear Tentative in French or Attempt in English, that would mean the quest for something hard to reach, but precisely Tentation or Temptation, meaning the attraction for something dangerous or bad. Temptation of the Absolute expresses the fight between the love for the alive and for beings, for the persons, for instants, for that wonderful terrestrial life, and the foreseeable death of any object of love — except one dictated by eternity. This aporia leads to despair, and to the quest for an answer to this despair, either through loving what will die, and accepting that it will die, either through a temptation for the absolute, for loving only what won't die, but doesn't belong to our human life.
