Overview

Write a short summary of what happens in the film.

In this beautiful film we feel the tension of a couple tearing each other apart, the tough love they share being at the edge of rupture. 

Symbolizing the rift that is created between the two lovers, their apartment cracks at every word too many. They realize they have gone too far and decide to come back to each other. A pure moment of cinema.

Tell the jury about the ambitions & challenges of production process.

The ambition for this film was to combine an emotional piece mixed with the entertainment and drama of an « Avenger » sequence (without the budget that goes with it). We tried to shoot in camera effects sometimes using simple techniques to create effects that looks big on camera and are not expensive (for example the sliding sequence is shot horizontally, we pulled the actors with wires and tilted the camera). We recycled a lot of sets by redressing them in order to allow more time on the shoot and less on construction. The other challenge was the casting. We wanted movie actors who were not too conventional nor « commercialish », not the regular white beautiful model couple in advertising, we looked for them for a long time and it was not an easy sell to the client but we ended up achieving what we were looking for.
