La Horde

Synopsis: The Horde is an essay about the relationship between human kind and nature. Jerome Colin has created a brand new way of looking at ourselves just imagining how nature itself would observe us with some kind of scientific point of view. The result of this inversion is really funny but full of resonance also. The satire works because it's questioning our more innocent practice of nature : walking in protected areas. What do we call nature? How much of our effects on environment do we ignore? What are we walkers there for? By the way, the film opens a reflection about the notion of scientific truth, and the limits of our perception of the world.

Sorry about yesterday when

I saw his body at the viewing.

I should have controlled myself.

No, you had no reason.

Helene did not deserve to see

how you cried over his body.

Do you think I did on purpose?

I'm not stupid!

She knew that you slept with him.

I thought that you were more mature.

If you had to sleep with someone,

an outsider could have kept the family


Is that why Ouesso and Tony are angry

with me?

How dare you come?

Does Jimenez know?

- No.

I don't think he'd let her come

if he knew.

- We should tell them.

- Forget it.

Jimnez knew she had a relationship with

Rivoallan, and doesn't need to know


- Yes, but don't you think ...

- What?

Aurore is one of us,

you're not. So shutup!

We made a mistake, but today we

must be united.

I only have you.

So I said nothing.

I know Ouesso would never understand.

- Ouesso has his principles.

- No.

He has a lot of anger.

Mathias was everything to me

and that bothers you.

No, it's you who bothers me.

You do whatever you want, I don't give a


But lets make you the victim.

I need a soldier, not a crybaby.

Impeccable, as always.

What's this?

- A medallion that was my aunts.

For protection.

I know what you do.

It's not what you think.

- Ouesso, don't lie to me.

Not to me.

I know what you do.

I lost my husband.

And I don't want to lose my family.

Listen well, Ouesso.

You're the one I trust.

So promise me one thing.

Bring everyone back.



I promise.

You'll be OK.

You don't think I knew

about Aurore...

I'm not stupid.

He slept with her for 20 years.

But I knew my husband better than you.

Listen to me Frank.

I trust in you.

You have to promise me something.

Promise you will kill the

pigs that did this!

Promise me that you will

kill them all!


What do you want from me?


- Where are they?

- I don't know who you're talking about!

- Where are they?

- I don't know who ...

- Where are they?

- I'll ask you again!

- I don't know what you mean.

Where are the Markudis?

Where are the Markudis?

I don't know what you're talking about!

Where are they?

- What's happening?

- Leave him alone!

- Tony, get rid of them!

- What are you doing?

- Out!

- Pigs!

- Don't mess in my private affairs!

- Get out at once!

They have spent two days in hiding.


- I didn't get it from Rivoallan.

- Do you want to stay with us?

In the northern area.

- What?

- In the northern area.

In the district Charonne.

They are hiding with his men.

Rivoallan ...

was like our brother.

The Markudis killed him like a dog.

I'm not being sentimental.

I just want to kill those bastards.

I want to see ...

how they beg for their lives.

I thought this place was deserted.

We'll be seen.

So what? We eliminate anyone that gets

in our way.

Come on!

Skounade, Nabil, go home.

- Don't tell us what to do.

Stop bother us.

Around the back.

Jimenez, I didn't come here for a


Well does it make you feel better?

You don't understand.

We'll have to play dirty.

We're just here for Markudi.

Ouesso, you're a good guy,

I know that.

But do not forget

why we are here.

Today, we came for a bloodbath.

Come on!

Ouesso, they are the enemy.

Remember that.


Ohh ..! Quiet!

What's going on?

Who are you?

Relax, I'm the lookout.

Well, I was. There is nothing more

to lookout for in this sty.

Is this a bust?

It's for the immigrants upstairs?

- How many?

Seven, eight.

Not to mention the security guards.

- Anyone else upstairs?


The building is condemned.

The damned bourgeois and we are poor.
