"It's Not a Cowboy Movie": French comedy in a rather mundane physical setting


Gare du Nord night Paris FRA 002
It’s Not a Cowboy Movie” (“Ce n’est pas un film de Cow-boys”) is a comedy short, and rather minalmisl at that, by Benjamin Parent and Joris Morio, from My French Film Festival.  
  
  
The film alternates two conversations in latrines, by two teenage boys, and then two teen girls, about Brokeback Mountain (here, Oct. 8, 2017), maintaining that is is not a "western".  There is also a Brazilian short “Cowboy Forever” (here, Dec. 1, 2009).
  
In the Army they used to say “Never call attention in the latrine.”
