He decides to flee with her and the two cross the forests and hide in breath-taking surroundings, searching for a place for just the two of them.

“Ciel Rouge” is made by French director, Olivier Lorelle, who is a renowned screenwriter of 32 movies in French cinematography, notably “Indigènes (2006), Home (2008) and Omar m'a tuer (2011).

Phillipe is played by Cyril Descours, a male actor known to fans through the movies of Paris, je t'aime (2006), Complices (2009) and Le chant des sirènes (2011), while Thi is played by Audrey Giacomini, a Vietnamese French woman, who is known to the public through the films Mr. Nobody (2009) and Polaroid song (2012).

In the recently released trailer of “Ciel Rouge”, the audience can witness the moments of affection between the two main characters. Together, they go through many thorns and bullets, and escape pursuit in order to find a “paradise on earth” for them alone. There, Phillipe and Thi find themselves and are faced by the questions as to whether they can hide forever and what they must do to maintain their ever-lasting love.
