there´s a story behind everything...
the fast pace of our time has long expanded into our relationships. a partnership or a marriage for many decades by now becomes a rarity, at the younger generations we could almost believe that they become extinct. the more it is important that we are honest to ourself and our own conscience. love for oneself, the importance of one´s life may never be confused with arrogance or vanity. it´s about wholesome respect for yourself, about your self esteem and your satisfactions which everyone of us, every being on our planet, in our universe, really deserves. when you have reached that and if you are able to feel this, it makes everything possible.
these thoughts were always omnipresent at the development of the script. thereby
i have also tried to keep enough space for each one and his own interpretation. just inside yourself, you can explore what it is what makes you feel so happy.
at the beginning of all my planing, i thought about a one-shot short movie in berlin. after a short trip to the studios of daniel michaelis and willi fast and a six-pack of beer later, the one-shot was refused and berlin grew up to paris. where else would you tell the story of the most important of all forms of love?
in the upcoming weeks and months, i go to paris several times to organize the production. really fast I figured out, that for sharing this important message, it needs a worthy ambassador. very quickly i found marie luisa. many years ago she had her first photo shoot done with me and thereby she left me with a permanent impression. i knew she should be the one, this important personality that goes along through the world with my story.
now almost one year after my first thoughts, i hope we have created a little map for those who may not found them self.
