He is a harmless enough fellow, Parker by name, a garroter by trade, and a remarkable performer upon the jew's-harp
Eighteen-year-old Antoine (Alexandre Carril) and twin Quentin (Victor Carril) are almost indistinguishable (one draws, the other plays a jew's-harp

, metronome and vibes, is dedicated to "cleaning the universe" and putting on interviewers.
