Recommend this film

“A young woman named Simone Fattal, as if to discover herself, chooses to expose herself to the eye of the camera in order to reveal (better than any miroir?) a part of herself. Simone, without acting, enters into the spirit of the game of reflection that cinema allows – deliberately choosing to bow to the imperatives of filming, accepting the evaluations that the confrontation with the lens might generate and taking the risk (not without a certain justifiable reticence) of revealing herself to the gaze of others. Simone shows herself, in all spontaneity, talking about herself, through little touches, snippets and fragments – freely allowing frankness: uncompromisingly accepting to submit to this exercise of sincerity and truth, which she imposes and demands of herself. Because Simone seems to expect, above all, a form of clarity from this “production” of her own image – the cinema thus becoming the medium, or rather the special condition for making appear (or better still, making possible) a reality which only it is able to grasp, to render visible, according to its own balance of light and shadow. That is why this film is above all a cinematic quest to see: to see emerge, through the gaze, a part of the self – the part of the self that doesn’t really belong to us, to the extent that it is true that we are all a face of humanity, even without knowing it.” (Eugénie Paultre)
