Mes copains

Fortnight 2008, Short film, 26mn

Synopsis

There are days when I tell myself that I’m not worthy of my friends. Other days when I look at them looking at me and I think: “The others all failed from the very start but we’re gonna make it.” And then I tell myself : “Even that idea will get old, so quick, quick, let’s film it.” You scribble a story about parents who take their kids hostage, and you ask a really pretty girl to play the boy who wants all the girls.” You project that on a big screen and you see what that gives you. Ah there, my friends on the big screen because I think they’re very handsome.
