The director decided not to advertise for cast. Instead, the producer passed the word to friends, and that's how the main protagonists were found. The director wanted people to be surprised with the invitation, and didn't want people just looking for a chance to appear on screen. See more »
I have to admit before watching it, I thought it was going to be about something superficial but once I pressed play, I was drawn (thanks first to the music) into the all story and the emotions of it. Honestly, I did not expect to be as touched as I was. This documentary addresses numerous issues we have as a society and the search for 'perfection' and what lengths we'll go through to get there. It works as an excellent reminder of the "disorder" that a large proportion of the population still lives from day to day. We could call it "a beauty disorder". The nature of the material is depressive but it's shoot with an impeccable taste and carefulness, like the cut of a precise surgeon. I was a bit surprised by the outcome and think this is a terribly interesting topic for discussion. Highly recommend it!
