Huitième jour

Joyful Failure

La Mob à Sisyphe (FR)

What happens on the eighth day? The day of failure: Three men are waiting. They are bored. They spread jam on bread, rock on their chairs, open a bottle - simple everyday actions turn into an absurd game with the desire to outdo themselves.

A virtuoso competition unfolds, combining acrobatics, juggling, and skill. They always push a little further, delighting in exaggeration. But instead of chasing success, wanting to shine, and regretting missed goals, 'Huitième jour' shows what happens when competition reaches its limits: magnificent disasters, joyful chaos, and liberating absurdity!
