The Dominant Metaphor is Silverware
A young man is dressing up the table and getting everything ready to eat.
Little by little, his interest for what he is doing switches to the silverware.
Seemingly obsessed by the sturdiness of the silverware, he manipulated it more and more obsessively. He seems to see something in the silverware, or rather beyond it.
More than a reflection of himself, the objects seem to send him a reflection in reverse of his condition as an oxidising human being.
The cast and crew consisted of 2 people: actor François Pradier and director Fabrice Ducouret (with off-set screenplay help from the director's girlfriend at the time).
This film was shot in two evenings over 2004 and 2005 at one of their friend's large Paris flat.
"My intentions as a director were to convey what objects reflect of ourselves or even our condition as human beings. The things we share with them and the things that make us different in terms of longevity, oxydation, how they are designed to fit in our hands and survive us if they are properly built.
What could be more different than skin and stainless steel?"
