The preparation of a film by students in a film school
28 May 2005 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

The last five days before the shooting of their first movie by a group of students in a film university in Japan. The film in the film is based on a the story of a student who killed an old lady to experience new feelings. As the beginning of the shooting approaches, tension increases, new problems arise everyday. The private life of the various protagonists interferes with the preparation of the film, and the professor who overviews their works (nicknamed Aschenbach after the character in Death in Venice) must also cope with his problems. A very gripping film played convincingly by young actors, and full of references to the films that have influenced them. Beautiful filming. The title comes from the fact that the main actor is invited to read "L'étranger" by Camus, to better understand the character he's playing. Film selected for the Directors' fortnight in Cannes.
