Presented like a live performance, "Normality" questions the notions of identity and individuality. In a sterile world, an androgynous character seeks freedom and interacts with symbolic elements whose interpretation is left to the spectator. The original soundtrack composed after the video emphasizes the dreamy trip of this escape.

"Normality" is the third chapter of a work started with "Fragments - Les bruissements du monde" and "Paragenèse".

Written, directed and filmed by Jean-Sébastien Monzani

Acting by Catherine Delmar

Music Composed and Produced by Angelo Vitaliano (original music created for this movie)

Less scary, still creepy in this one. I felt as if the woman was having an internal struggle between trying to be part of normality and at the same time fighting against it, at the end paying the price for that struggle with pain and beatings, from others and herself.
Loved the directing, filming and overall dark atmosphere though I felt that the music wasn't fitting for the movie, a little off, in my opinion, taking a chunk of the quality with it.

@03:28Less scary but still creepy this time, it felt both like a struggle to be a part of normality, but at the same time trying to fight it. The result, paying the price in pain, abuse from others and of yourself and loss of your original form, twisted and changed and no longer recognizable. Love the filming, atmosphere, directing, yet felt that the music was kind of off, harmed a bit of the quality, in my opinion.
