Oct. 22 at FLIFF"Looking for Cheyenne" (Oublier Cheyenne) is a tempestuous love story, and a lot more.
Writer-director Valerie Mineto manages with unstinting sardonic bravura to comment on the evils of globalization and the decline of opportunity and self-determination for modern youth.
Sonia (Aurelia Petit), a popular Paris high school teacher striving to make a contribution, and her lover Cheyenne (Mila Dekker), a long-unemployed journalist, have split when Cheyenne renounces society to live off the land. But their love and their effect upon each other may prove to be unending. A highly venturesome and effective film.
