CGiii Comment

This is like watching a fully fledged feature.

It's not pleasant...but, it's bloody good.

Really, this has everything - character arc, performance, soundtrack, definitive direction.

If only all short films had this amount of talent...

The(ir) Blurb...

'7Th HEAVEN' follows the everyday life of a young suburban (Sofiane) who does not manage to accept his sexuality described to be deviant by his circle, his family, his fellows and the ghetto where he lives. Sofiane is gay and homophobic, one day riffraff, one night fag, he is lost. He embodies the distress of idle and withdrawn youth through its inconsistency.


« 7ème Ciel » suit le quotidien d'un jeune maghrébin (Sofiane) qui ne parvient pas à assumer sa sexualité qualifiée de déviante par son entourage, sa famille, ses proches et la cité dans laquelle il vit. Sofiane est homosexuel et homophobe, un jour racaille, un soir pédé, un peu perdu. Il incarne par ses contradictions le désarroi d'une jeunesse désœuvrée et sans repères, vivant renfermée sur elle-même.
