Film synopsis: 
<p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In the &quot;demi-monde&quot; of night fishing, anglers on a French beach cast their lines. The camera follows their night-long toiling in obscurity, the contrast provided by the limited light sources resembling a scene from a baroque painting. Thus, a relatively ordinary activity takes on an otherworldly aspect, becoming an allegory for contemporary existence as well as for artistic production itself. For me, the situation evokes Miltonian-style scenarios of humans and rebel angels cast out of paradise and the film plays on Biblical fishing-related allusions (several of the apostles were said to be fisherman, and were described as &lsquo;&lsquo;Fishers of men&rsquo;&rsquo; and Christ was symbolized by a fish). Therefore, on a symbolic level, in the film the fishermen produce a &lsquo;&lsquo;divine&rsquo;&rsquo; signifier (i.e. the fish) which is subsequently disposed of, presumably leaving them to cast around for alternative significations.&nbsp;</p>
