Mimesis: The Battered Mime and a Little Street Kid

Mimesis: The Battered Mime and a Little Street Kid

Mimesis is a melancholy, but ultimately very uplifting short film directed by the young French filmmaker Camille Meynard, which has won a number of awards at European film festivals. The film tells the story of a chance meeting between a down-on-his-luck mime and a young boy. Mimesis opens showing the mime at a tawdry fight club full of hooligans, where he works as a battered fall-guy for the other fighters. After he gets fired from the fight club, the mime returns home to his decrepit little apartment, where he gets harassed by a group of boys throwing rocks through his window. The ensuing encounter between the street kid and the tragic mime leads to a heartwarming coming together of an adult mind in a children’s body and a children’s mind in an adult body. Who said magic doesn’t exist anymore?
