The Black Box

Synopsis: Images flash through Arthur's brain, voices buzz in his mind, uttering disjointed words and sentences. Arthur Seligman seems to have had an accident but did he run over a little boy or not? And what was he doing near Cherbourg while he lives in Paris? When he regains consciousness (but does he really?) Isabelle Kruger, a nurse, tells him that he had lapsed into a coma after his accident and that she wrote down all of what he said while he was delirious. She gives him the notebook and Arthur starts investigating...HIMSELF!
Genre: Mystery, Thriller

Awful thing to say.

If that's how it is,

I'll give you a show...They'll see.

Sylvain Ganem wants revenge.

Sylvain Ganem wants to kill me.

Dad? It's Arthur.

Ahhh, how's my boy?

What are you up to?

It's been a while.

Just wanted to ask: do you

know the name Sylvain Ganem?

Sylvain Ganem? No, dunno,

what team does he play for?

Nothing. Nobody.

Do you remember my accident

in the stairs when I was little?

You bet I remember, your mother

and I thought you had died.

Something happened at school that year?

You're funny, you ask me that now?

In 2nd Grade. It happened in May,

and you went back in September.

I wasn't held back?

No, that's what your teacher wanted,

the old bitch. Said you were incorrigible.

You really hated her.

You're incorrigible!


How did I fall in the stairs?

I have no clue.

We were at the table, heard a noise.

We didn't think you could still

fall in stairs at that age. You were 7.

Your mother found you...

we were so frightened.

We brought you to the hospital,

they put on a cervical collar...

They say a child can't

conceive of suicide. That's untrue.

I wanted to die because

I didn't want to repeat a year.

I was only 7 years old.


Oh, sorry, I was elsewhere.


My work. I needed to

get away, see people.


You won't see many.

Sylvain Ganem wants revenge.

Sylvain Ganem wants to kill me!!!!!

That's a big job.


I cried damn it.

Everyone saw.



It's me. It's Arthur.

How are you?


Your son Arthur. That's me.

Look, I brought chocolates.

The ones you like.

Good aren't they?

Any news from Yvan?

Yvan? No, no news.

When did you last see him?

Do you remember?

Try to remember, Mom.

I'm thirsty.

- With you. He was with you.

- You know a Sylvain Ganem?
