The loss of youth and innocence can be played for comedy or tragedy. The stunning black-and-white cinematography and hypnotic electric guitar that fill "Left Foot Right Foot", as portentous as they are beautiful, are a pretty clear indication which side of the coin photographer Germinal Roaux intends to focus on in his first feature.

An ominous specter hangs over events as banal as schlepping the laundry around or as ecstatic as drug-fueled dancing in a nightclub. Marie and Victore are barely 20. They work lousy jobs. They live in a cramped, crummy apartment. A map of the world hangs on the wall but they’ve probably never seen much outside of their Swiss suburb of Lausanne. They laze in bed as young lovers and they quarrel over how they’ll pay the bills like an old married couple. But when a former friend of Marie’s dazzles her into accepting a job as a hostess for a rich nightclub owner, and Vincent’s severely autistic brother Mika requires more of Vincent’s attention, an unexpected chain of events will force them both to grow up fast.
