    La Ballade de Titus is a story that addresses a worrying, contemporary issue—the right to be different. Although it's a serious subject, we decided to deal with it in a humorous vein, using the very special tone and register of burlesque fable. Because fable it is. Watching Titus means entering a world where ‘wild’ children are in fact ‘cartoon’ kids, where psychiatrists turn out to be crazier than their patients, and potentates much nastier. I love Titus like a brother, he's the unwilling hero of the film. I love his exuberant energy, his open-mindedness, his completely crazy humor, and above all his total lack of inhibition which allows him to do certain things we all think about but morally condemn. - Vincent de Brus, press book
