“Whenever I’m said, my mumma tells me to squeeze her hand so hard it hurts.” You looked up at him, eyes shining with tears. “Why does she do that?” “She says that’s how you remember that the person whose hand you’re holding is always with you. And it always works for me.” Ashton extended his hand to you. “Do you wanna?” Your eyes went from Ashton’s hand back to Ashton’s face. “Okay, Ashton.”
Hey, I don't know how to word this because I'm so afraid that it might sound offensive, I absolutely don't mean it that way! You have a lovely blog and I love the style and content ... but... is there any video that you'd recommend (on youtube) that wasn't edited and shows their "sweet vibes"? I've re-watched so many panels now but I can hardly see it. I'm sorry if that sounds like I'd try to find "something against it", I'm not! :) Just trying to see it the same way you guys do. :) Thank you!
don’t worry, that’s alright! so here’re some videos i would recommend:
The film itself is enjoyable but nothing particularly special.
Taking place for the most part in it’s French setting, the cinematography is generally unsettling.
You cannot relax between the time cuts and the eerie silences. Which makes you highly aware of everything little sound and movement.
Colin for his part as Paul is flawless. Perfectly embodying the mannerisms of the 20-something who doesn’t know what to do with their life.
As Paul sleeps with his arms wrapped around himself in some sort of half-hug you feel his loneliness and directionless even more viscerally, and you can’t help but route for him even as his actions boarder into more questionable territory.
The camera truly loves Colin, with close-ups abound. His fluffy, and just this side of unkempt, curling around his ears.
The plot is not the strongest, many things are left unsaid, the viewer left to come to their own conclusions about somethings. But it does hold interest none the less.
After the film, Charles answered a few questions, saying:
- They do want to have a mainstream cinema release, but they are still struggling to get it, so will continue with the screenings as a part of film festivals.
- Charles approached Colin about the role after discovering him in some interviews online.
- Colin wrote a partial essay on his character, and his lines. While on the other hand Fanny made no notes, and played her character mysterious.
- Colin and Fanny were kept separate during rehearsals so their final meeting could be more genuine.
