The principle is very simple : every day of the week at 7 a.m., CineSeries offers you an unusual, striking or humorous image or video.

The film Life is a long quiet river came out on the big screen in 1988. We find there Benoît Magimel, still very young, but also Valérie Lalonde, Abbes Zahmani, André Wilms, Catherine Hiegel, Christine Pignet, Claire Prévost among others. The synopsis of the film is as follows:

Appointment tomorrow at 7 a.m. for a new image of the day.
