Guillaume Chauchat La Villa Nuit
But where did the caterpillar that Jean had carefully kept in a box go?
Young Jean, between waking dream and dreamlike reality, leads a strange, double life. The one during the day, when he has to get up, brush his teeth, go to school, have a snack while listening to music, in short a normal day. And the one that starts at nightfall, when he closes his eyes, lying in bed. Every night, in his dreams, his house comes to life and the little boy can communicate with it, from the smallest object in it to the walls that make it up. But since the caterpillar is nowhere to be found, everything starts to disappear with each passing night, from the furniture to the objects that are most precious to him. Jean is very worried… A doubt hangs over his head: will everything disappear in the end? It is difficult, however, to solve this problem of disappearance when the investigation can only be carried out at the time of sleep. “What is going on? Why am I alone? Why are the objects talking? How can I hold this tear in my hand?” These are all questions Jean asks himself as he discovers that you can do whatever you want in a dream, and that the void is not the door to fear but the open door to all possibilities.
