Thanks for your support, we invite you to have a look at the teaser above !
The visual inspirations come from In the Mood for Love (and most of Wong Kar Wai's films) ; Akira Kurosawa and Takeshi Kitano for the composition.
We hope to release the film in April 2019 and thus send it to festivals by the next spring !
The idea of the project came when an old person went to a retirement house : his home was going to be renovated and sold. By pure luck, we were able to visit the place before and made a proposition to shoot there a movie, before the restoration. The house is goergeous, everything has been kept as in the 60-70s, furnitures, windows, and especially the plenty of retro wallpapers (those will be used for the film credits).
By the lack of funds and qualified persons, the film will not be shot on film stock as intended, but we will keep the 1,85 aspect ratio (unlike the fake 2,35 in most of the acutal produced short willing to imitate a "cinema" look...) !
