Recently reading about Mobius (2013),I decided to take a look at writer/director Eric Rochant. Going down the list,I found that unknown to me,there was a Rochant short which has been sitting in my "To play" pile all year,leading to me taking a very close look.
View on the film:
Turning the head of every man who sees her,Elizabeth Bourgine gives a sparkling turn as Elle, who treats the peculiar situation with a deadpan kooky manner.
Wisely deciding not to explain why Elle has a dozen men silently following behind her everywhere, director Eric Rochant & cinematographer Arnaud Desplechin swing the pristine chic colour of Cinema Du Look into amusing surreal Comedy, gliding along streets as Elle and the unnamed narrator act like they are on a normal date, whist half a dozen men are keeping in time to Elle's every move.
