Review: Monogrenade “Le Fantôme”


Directed by Kristof Brandl, Mongrenade’s “Le Fantôme” beautifully showcases the desire to relive precious moments of a past relationship. Over and Over the male protagonist stumbles into a bowling ally where a futuristic robot injects him with a drug allowing him to travel back in time. However, instead of being able to relive the moments he desperately craves, he is met with the ghostly figures of his past love, unable to interact, stuck in a time gone by. As his tender turned turbulent relationship plays out, he is only able to play along, find comfort  in a an alcoholic beverage and repeat. With cinematographer from Christophe Collette and captivating visual effects, “Le Fantôme” is certainly a mesmerising watch.
