5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in French and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This story covers the overlapping stories of a group of French Parisiens who discover the reality of the Aids epidemic through their complex relations with a young man; Manu. The story unfolds through the complex interactions arranged as scenes as they interact with the character Manu as Sister, Lover, Friend, confidante and even rival as their already difficult relationships become crystallised by his premature diagnosis and inevitably demise. Each character has their life priorities questioned and they are forced into re-evaluation of the very basic tenets to which they had hitherto held self evident. The Doctor calls Manu his "Eros" and this self deprecating and lonely man is infused with vicarious energy at the simple prescence of this charasmatic individual who with devastating simplicity wins over the cynical underworld of sexplotation and their even harder protagonists in the shape of the Chief of Police. He is inviolate, kind, demonstrative and unafraid and takes joy in the simple pleasures of life until he must deal with the horror of his prognosis. Numerous sub stories link the individual struggles of characters to exist, to create, to advance their careers and even to crusade with Manu the keystone enabling these stories to provide context for this thoughtful retrospective of the reality of the mindset at the beginning of this 'war' against AIDS."--IMDb website

This film tells the story of a 12 year old boy who works with increasing desperation to support his family in war-torn Germany. He kills his sickly father, and then, unable to live with such a deed, kills himself. Filmed shortly after WWII in Berlin, a place filled with starving people, rampant crime, and a generation confused by the role their fathers played in one of history's greatest tragedies.
