gets a new look !
A woman who wants to have a baby, a teenager in search of herself, a man who appears to have lost everything... Because each one has their own story to tell. What does it matter that these storeis don't recieve top billing: a story is life. For this life to become " the story " we must simply seize the flame that fires us, the being within. Sharpen our gaze, render visible that which, in these hectic modern times of ours, we tend to forget: life.
Mixing genres opens new perspectives, which I find exciting. I like to walk on the edge, off-balance. But only if the genres aren’t too codified, so that you can play with them and bend them. If I can’t break free of them, I’m not interested. Serendipity should always play a role. I’m not so much interested in conforming to the mold of a genre film as I am in playing on atmosphere and viewpoints, in combining aloofness, humor, emotion, and detachment. That’s the way I understand and recount things. I don’t like things to be too straightforward.
