A Powerful Voyage, a Charming Visual Poetry...
14 August 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

When personal parentheses open, they give time for meditation, imagination… A powerful movie that leads to a real reflection in a period where movies are just an entertainment tool for pop corn grabber...

The images that remains in your head after watching this movie gives you pleasure even more than the moment you are watching it… An aesthetic based on the slow images at times but also on careful framing and cutting related to the emotion felt by the characters or the viewers themselves.

The thrust of aesthetics and film structure sent the film in certain moments, to a meditative- contemplative level, on a journey through time in an imaginary space ... From here, the relation between memory and the unreal create themes that justify the modern treatment sometimes.

The first intention was to confront the viewer with a film about a true story reproduced by the imagination of a child narrating it in his own way. In storytelling, the genre 'tale' is revealed… and the desire to keep a sensational spell, threw me without feeling in the romantics and particularly the colorful poetry.

An unexpected avant-guard treatment for a movie done with a lot of bravery, for a First Film signed by its director...
