Directed by Pierre Morath
During two years and a half, the man didn’t move from his couch of his Geneva apartment. His letterbox was full, his mail returned. Electricity had eventually been cut off and the real estate agency was about to proceed to an eviction.
When finally the police force the door, they discover a flat infected by vermin and in the middle, the decomposed body of Michel Christen, a 53 years-old Swiss man.
The investigation held in the film will show that his death dates back to 28 months. But the date on the death certificate is the one of the day the body was found. This is the regulation…
How could this man, who had a family and who was followed-up by medical and social services, fall into oblivion in such a way?
