We’ve been working on that project for the past three years. Three years filled with hopes and small victories but also with many « Maybe » and « sorry but in spite of your project’s quality… » But we have faith in it… We believe that this project is beautiful with its sensitive and universal side. We want our voices to be heard on that topic and if possible to reach and touch maximum people. Because the idea of making movies, is in order to fulfill (our) teenagers’ dreams, to make us, and if possible others, feel good.
"A QUOI TU PENSES?" is a love story or rather an love-lost story. It tells us about love and resignation, themes that are cherished by James Gray, as well as Douglas Sirk. Ozon, Mendés, Truffaut…they all talked about it, and yet in such different and personal ways.
We’re gonna do it too. It’s a deal, we need to… We’re gonna show intimacy, withering links, laughs with no restraint, emptyness… So, if you’d like to help us spread our voices, there you go…
SYNOPSIS: One week. Seven days. Tom and Lola. A place, their room, where they love each other and dream, until the day, in that same room, Tom disappears.
With « A quoi tu penses », I wanted to write a complete love story, from the first feelings to these growing little things that finally make two people split up. Not to show love with great declarations but with some little things, some unspoken moments, some « I love you » revealing themselves at some point. To show love with what it implies in terms of games, complicity, gestures, looks… To show that being in love and being loved also implies being alive…
But what happens if one of the two disappears? Does love keep going on? Does life keep going on? Do we go over it or do we keep playing the same story over and over again? In our minds? In our memories?
I want to film the bodies getting closer, kissing and touching each other. I want to capture the unspoken moments, the looks of complicity, the shining eyes. I want to film the sensuality, the bodies and the skins, the goose pimples on Lola’s skin when Tom touches her. I want details, to be inside their life. I want to film this coming back to reality phase, when fights start to grow in before we notice them. I want to show their very personal way of living their love story as a game, as a movie, as characters…until the moment they stop acting like they used to.
