Éric Cantona in Ulysses & Mona.

Ulysses (Éric Cantona, Looking for Eric) is a 55-year-old contemporary artist who ran away from his family and ended his career four years earlier. Now, he spends his days in seclusion hitting tennis balls or listening to horror movie soundtracks. Mona (Manal Issa, Nocturama, Parisienne) is a 20-year-old art student. Between nude drawing workshops and boring theory classes, her life couldn’t be more uneventful. But everything changes when Mona decides to meet Ulysses.  After a failed first attempt and some misfortune, both set out on a journey that will change their lives forever.

An official selection at the Toronto, Torino and Hong Kong international film festivals, the DVD incarnation of the drama includes a bonus short film, Wolf Carver, written and directed by Finland’s Aino Suni.
