Wonderful piece of Art of a Director who exhibits himself.
28 August 2012 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A movie that gave me the desire to love, to think, to write about its small hidden and so interesting layers…

A narrator who has decided to peek through door locks … more specifically the one belonging to his parent's room. Idols who become puppets, manipulated by the hands of their own descendant. He digs into their privacy without restraint. He broadcasts their little secret with good conscience, and sometimes unconsciously…

Between the sacred and the profane, a sewing machine is in the act of stitching a hatching memory, a memory that seeks guiding points, among his toys, his photo albums, and his music box…

A memory of a child that arrogantly decides to exist before the meeting of his own parents, to even achieve attending their own marriage, to organize it, design it, imagine it, to film it… and above all to be put face to face with a camera that denudes, that unveils, that penetrates the absolute intimacy. The time machine will equate the 'sewing machine' that runs just as a negative roll would. A sewing machine with a series of Christmas lanterns that certainly served the small and old trees of grandmothers or old cousins decorating the plateau of an intimate shooting.

A child playing with the heels of his mother, who dances in her studio… What's in those boxes? Is it beads or buttons? Small toys or forgotten photo albums? Scissors? A story board? … A magazine of 82, Catherine Deneuve on the cover, existed on the set of that memory box, in the studio of a narrator who exhibits himself.

A real charming emotional movie to be definitely seen more than once… Eager to watch it again with in Italy in the very near future I hope.
