A journey by a man and a woman along the borders of continents. The water, the medicine, the ice, the fire. Heaven is extinguished!
Before this time, films by F.J. Ossang were not comparable to other films. But Ciel éteint! calls to mind films from the 1970s by Philippe Garrel (Marie pour mémoire, Le révélateur), closely related to anarchist filmmaker Jean-Pierre Lajournade. With the mythological everydayness of the young, destitute lovers Philémon and Baucis live in their cottage (made of reed in Ovid, made of wood in Ossang's version). At the end of the credits one finds the most beautiful visual declaration of love ever.
