A psychological trip into the traumas of three linked characters.

Assumption #1: Dreams can reflect in a symbolic way the traumas of the dreamer
Assumption #2: In dreams, neither the linearity of time nor causality are mandatory

Neither stop motion nor film, this "photofilm" is an experiment to break the linearity of time in a movie, while conveying a specific mood. It's simply composed of roughly two thousands photos.


Written and directed by Jean-Sébastien Monzani

Actors:
Lina Taschi (Chapter I and II): Nissa Kashani
Ivan Minz (Chapter II): Adrien Barazzone
Sylvia Minz (Chapter III): Marie Fontannaz

Light assistant (Chapter I): Jonathan Main

Wow, great video, it gave me chills *.* I would love to find out the explanation of the traumas because they're kind of hard to interpret. But all in all, I really liked it!!

This was deeply linked to the psychology of the fictional characters, I think that's why it works.

My current photo-work is based on mystery, you'll see it soon.

Cheers!

@08:22I've got a lot to say about this movie:

First, the surreal nature of the movie was just amazing! The convulsions, stop-motion (that must have taken a while to do), and the darkness were very unnerving. After seeing a surreal movie like Hausu, I have come to appreciate the unexplainable. It was as if I was trapped in a deep story within a creative nightmare.

Second, the eerie soundtrack just heightened the mood. It was almost hypnotizing me to pay further attention to every minute detail.

Finally, I am an individual who love to read between the lines and discover symbolism. The whole movie portrays a very tragic story. What that story is, I can't piece together completely. True horror is not meant to be explained in much detail. After all, it's the things that we DON'T understand that frighten us the most. This has been a complete visual treat for me! (Sorry if I over-wrote this comment. ^^;)

@04:00Yes, indeed: there's a complete script of the psychology of each character and their links. It's definitively based on that :nod:

I really love this, and I've loved trying to figure out the symbolism myself. You did a great job in creating the mood and left the interpreting fairly open with the symbolism.

But would you mind messaging me and telling me about the dice? That's something I couldn't figure out.
