Rooms without a view by Marre, Emmauel

Although 'Rooms without a view' contains a small voice-over, it is a portrait of a Formule 1 Hotel and its guests. Formule 1 Hotels are ultra cheap establishments commonly found in peri-urban zones: a low cost way to “inhabit” the world. Behind the doors to the rooms, the uniformity of the space, reduced to the strict functional minimum, reveals the tension inherent in each human life: sedentary versus nomadic, excess versus restraint, routine versus survival. While the main character of Rooms Without a View is a tightly formatted hotel, its residents are not so easy to package. They use, abuse and cause mayhem in this sleep machine dream.
