The movie was a collaborative work with Dafna Maimon, as a joined Rietveld end-exam project besides our own movies.
Folie a deux “a madness shared by two” or just another definition for love?
At one table in one dinner obsession, delusion, desire and expectations bounce back and forth from one to another creating one great gender battle.
The movie is a result of developing the Siamese twin characters, Frank and Grace. Frank and Grace outlive their own (30s)Hollywood-like fantasy, about attaining love through the use of romance clichés. In this fantasy another man and woman become the unwilling participants, while the twins fail to realize the love that they already share.
The Project changed character a lot trough the process of development. The first idea was to make a TV-dating show out on a field, with the twins as the hosts, and with animals walking around with heart shaped balloons attached to their backs. The last scene of the movie is the remains of that original idea.
Produced feb.2006 – jul.2006
