About the film
We tried to shoot a film about intimate, personal things, the kind of things that are similar everywhere, wherever people live. Looking for love is a never-ending battle which defines and forms man, an essence within every story, and unrequited love hurts no matter where you live, whatever your geographical location, it hurts the same everywhere. In this story, there are three main characters, each of whom has a fissure in their lives, a fissure to do with love. Marie is in love with the teacher, the teacher is in love with her son who, in his turn, is being dropped by his first love. In such a chain of unrequited love our characters don’t have a chance to find any kind of fulfillment, and it is this they must set aright. Love has many forms, as many as there are people, and every piece of a relationship between one person and another has absolute value in itself. Recognizing this value is difficult because it asks us to accept even that which we don’t always understand, to forgive even when we feel betrayed. Our characters may not find romantic love per se, but they can find a deeper friendship and they can grow from this. If someone is to mature, he must be capable of forgiving. The ability to forgive is one of man’s greatest faculties. The ability to forgive restores faith in the meaning of life.
