LES CHOSES QUI COMPTENT

Thomas, jeune adulte travaillant dans la finance, est déterminé à réussir professionnellement, qu’importe les épreuves et sacrifices, même si cela lui coûte le plaisir de la vie. Son obsession va cependant être mise en suspens lorsqu'il se réveille un matin dans le corps de son « lui » 20 ans plus tôt.

C'est non sans difficultés, que Thomas doit apprendre à nouveau le goût de l’insouciance et des choses simples.

A WORD FROM JULES CHERBONNIER, director

"I don't have time, I have to work.       

"What is my goal in life?"

"If I had started this ten years earlier..."        

"If I had known."   

"I will become someone."

 

 

Creating this project, writing this story comes from a desire to illustrate our quest, I should even say, our common obsession that we have to succeed... To conquer and mark our existence in this world in order to overcome that fear of being forgotten.

I think we can all, to some degree, relate to Thomas, his loneliness and perdition in his choices and daily life. We all wish to discover the answer to this search for happiness, our reason or destiny that we feel we have an obligation to fulfill and follow.

 

In my life, I have been Thomas, I have been lost and stubborn, I have been alone by my own doing. My message is the one I got from this experience: Happiness can be found in the small moments of life, it is not enough to chase after some extreme.

 

Take a breath, stop and take the time to see how far you have come, to consider the people who surround you and love you: You don't need anything more, you are happy.

 

 

Jules CHERBONNIER, Director.

DIRECTION OF PHOTOGRAPHY

We paid particular attention to each shot, each framing in order to translate and sublimate the director's intentions into images. 

LIGHT

The light was artificially composed for each shot in order to ensure homogeneity and consistency throughout the short film.
