Nosebleed at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival

A nose that won’t stop bleeding creates an emotional outburst from our nameless protagonist. In his desperation, the man seeks increasingly extreme methods to stop the blood and numb the pain. Finally, his self-destructive acts prove to be futile and the root of the problem reveals itself.

First time director Jeff Vespa relies on his background as a photographer as he, using playful and creative camera work and elegant lighting, creates a raw and gritty movie. Nosebleed deals with the turmoil of heartbreak, and the difficulty of dealing with suffering and grief.
