Spielberg homage
1 October 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I think it's a good beginning for a good director. Everything is already there,the sense of space,the rhythm and the more important influences...Spike Lee,i think that the Nike commercials are one of the basis of this short and Spielberg for the directing techniques. In a way it's one of the first french movies(the only with metisse and la haine)to show the influence of the street culture on the contemporary France,and the mix of culture. Kassovitz he's the first to show an hidden part of the french reality,the question is why nobody try to go in this way? It's a "real" short,no dialogs,only camera movement and simple acting,it's a commercial,"this is what i can do with a camera",that's why it's interesting.
