"En déambulant dans une ville, un jeune homme croise divers individus dont il écoute avec intérêt les propos philosophiques. L'un parle d'existentialisme, un autre aborde le sujet de l'évolution humaine, tandis que d'autres livrent leurs réflexions sur des thèmes aussi variés que la conscience, le destin, la communication entre les humains, le passage du temps, la mort, etc. Puis soudain, le jeune homme se réveille dans son lit et comprend alors qu'il a rêvé toutes ces rencontres. Mais presque aussitôt, le manège recommence, jusqu'à ce qu'il se réveille à nouveau. Le jeune homme devient alors persuadé qu'il est en train de rêver sa propre vie, sans savoir pour autant comment se réveiller pour de bon."--Site, visionné le 20 août 2014

The bridge by Eric Steel( Visual )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2004, 24 people jumped to their deaths from the Golden Gate Bridge. More people have chosen to end their lives at the Golden Gate Bridge than anywhere else in the world."--End titles. What makes the suicides at the bridge so unusual is that they take place in broad daylight, in front of people in a busy place - unlike most suicides, which are enacted in extreme privacy. Filmmaker Eric Steel and his crew spent 2004 filming the bridge during daylight hours from two locations, grappling with the ethical question of when to alert authorities, and their responsibilities as observers. The film features interviews with the families and friends of some of the victims that year, as well as one person who changed his mind. Offering a glimpse into one of the darkest, most impenetrable corners of the human mind, the film also interrogates society's ability to blithely ignore the grim realities of depression, mental illness, and drug abuse that underly so many suicides. These are only some of the factors discussed by the film, common to the twenty four people who died at the Golden Gate Bridge in 2004, who are now linked together forever by a 4 second fall in an otherwise magically, mysteriously beautiful place
