Absolut film Romed Wyder

Vincent Bonillo, Delphine Lanza


The day Alex tries to put a virus in the computer system of a bank, a car accident makes him lose his short-term memory. When he wakes up in hospital, he discovers that he has been lying in coma for two days. What has happened? Alex follows a therapy in order to recover his memory of the day of the accident. For him, visions and reality are thrown together in a confusing maze. Alex tries to escape from this muddle but what he discovers turns out to be rather frightening… The film Absolut is based on real events.
