A few months after the death of his mother, heavily tattooed post-punk musician Vincent (an award-winning performance from Kevin Azais) finds himself in an ever-escalating conflict with his father Hervé (Nathan Willcocks), with whom he lives in a small apartment, and emotionally torn by the choices that he faces. When Hervé starts dating Julia (Monia Chokri) Vincent’s life starts to develop in an unexpected way.
Multi-award winning writer / director Morgan Simon’s feature debut is an assured family drama, well-written and driven by a strong performances, all set against the background of the Parisian hardcore scene – which contributes to the driving soundtrack – A Taste of Ink is a powerful work that retains an immediacy and tension throughout.
