Short documentary by Gaspar Noé filmed around the the same time as Irréversible (in 16mm Scope), in which his friend Stéphane Drouot - director of the cult film Star Suburb - discusses life with AIDS and his struggles to make films.
A lesbian, an aspiring actor, an aspiring singer, a low-class marriage, a neighborhood community and 2 renowned directors have memorable less-than-24-hour-long experiences while living in/visiting the capital of Cuba.
"SebastiAn: Love in Motion" is a 4-minute short film and basically from start to finish a teenage girl dancing and presenting poses in her room. I must say I am quite a fan of most of Gaspar Noé's works, but I cannot really see a lot in this one. Looking at the title, it is probably intended that Noé was playing another teenage filming the protagonist and that is why the camera is so wild and constantly in motion, in terms of a home video. As a whole, this is probably Noé's weakest non-porn movie I have seen to this date. I hope he can return to form again with his next projects and show improvement compared to this work from 3 years ago. The music was fairly unappealing as well, but I guess it fits that the girl we see would listen to that. All in all, not a good film. Thumbs down.
