Plot
KARKALOU is a film about fiction. The man's present is extremely limited. He is excluded from the future and even the past is no more than a source of tender recollections. Without bitterness he is trying to play the final card. A card which perhaps doesn't really exist, but there is some hope for a joker. He leads a young man into the game. A climate of dissimulation is created. Also the relationship between the two is based on their talent to simulate. Various situations can take place, all of them fictitious but verisimilar. The young man, a taxi driver who carries whatever comes up, gets into the game without reservation and manages to give life to a number of scenes from the other one's past. He identifies, though, with the situations and the individuals taking part in them. In doing so he loses the capacity to play. Here ends the game, which turns out to be as limited as the present of our hero. Is this a film about death? That too, but it is also about the game of creativity as the final card. Once the form has emerged, creativity dies. Not because there is nothing else to say, but suddenly, to our surprise, creativity reappears, maybe like death itself. Yes, perhaps the card Karkalou is playing is only a bluff. But fiction and verisimilitude have made it possible to recover madness and idealism.
