Phelps, a solitary man who lives in a big industrial city by the sea, is very happy tonight. He is getting ready for a ball. And not any ball, a dance to which the young woman he loves has agreed to come. Tonight he will declare his flame and and it makes him feel like dancing... But there is something wrong with Phelps, at least in his own "eyes": he does not have a head! That is why he sets out to buy a head that suits him to please his lady... Written by
This film is like a surrealistic painting and a poetry in the same shell. The subject of the film is very actual- the flimsiness with which we base our choices in life and in love especially. It's about how people try to appear beautiful and pleasant to others, it's about our insecurity and our crave to be loved and appreciated by others. There is a french delicacy in every scene, in the music, maybe a little humor, a ingenious combination of time dimensions. The visual art is overwhelming, due to the 4 years spent to make this short-film. "Homme sans tête" has a charm which remains after you've seen it. For me was a totally surprise and a joy in the same time.
