Official selection of the Quinzaine des Realisateurs (Director's Fortnight) at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
Jean-Paul Colmor is 74 years old. After an accident early in his life, he took a retreat in collecting cars, wrecks and junk for the last 40 years. Living among tons and tons of debris, he quietly works each day on his unimaginable property, furnishing and dealing car parts to mechanics and other iron aficionados. One day, four intruders visit Colmor in search of a corner of twister paradise. The old man proves to be a lot more than they expected. Critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic for style and substance, CARCASSES uses documentary and fictitious elements in trying to get at the soul of an unthinkable place.
