Movie Info

Actress and comedienne Mariloup Wolfe steps behind the camera and takes the directorial reins for this finely felt coming-of-age tale. The title, which translates roughly as "Jumping into the Void," refers to the aimlessness that characterizes several twentysomethings who share a great zeal for life but a towering uncertainty about where their lives are specifically headed. Though the protagonists possess no knowledge or prior awareness of one another at the outset of the tale, their lives intersect and become entwined following a chance encounter at a skydiving station. 20-year-old Manu (Laurence Leboeuf) is a gorgeous young woman emotionally grappling with the news that her mother has terminal cancer; Rafael harbors aspirations of piloting planes but suddenly discovers his inability to do so; and Lundo has embarked on a soul-searching journey of self-discovery. Watching over the proceedings is Charles (played by real-life skydiver Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, who also served as technical advisor), the owner of the skydiving site where the majority of the drama unfurls. The filmmakers use the skydiving as a metaphor for the characters' shared search for "balance between sky and earth."
