DÉJÀ VU talks about the distance between a person and their dreams, between what they are and what they would like to be.
Very ambitious dreams that excite the delusions of grandeur, but are for the moment impossible, plunging that person into despondency. Especially suggestive, bold and fascinating … infused with a sharp sense of humour and a touch of surrealism.
A visual spectacle, void of text. The story has a hint of melancholy where the boundaries between reality and fantasy are blurred. Just as if Bartleby, the writer, was suddenly immersed in the fabulous world of Alice in Wonderland … A garbled reality in an undetermined space and moment, with a stage set that plays with the extreme disproportion of the dimensions.
The sound universe through the voice and the violin emphasize the duality of the character, transporting to a dreamlike universe.
For all audiences, recommended since 7 years old.
