Working in the tradition of Rohmer, Pasolini and Eugene Green, young filmmaker Clement Schneider, born in 1989, has created a film that’s less concerned with historical veracity and expensive re-enactments than it is with feelings and concepts compacted to a recognizable and human scale.
The fact that Schneider can explore relatively complex ideas — which involve casting off a former identity and its rules to absorb a new one for both an individual and a whole political system and country — with just a few actors is a testament to his filmmaking skills and creative talents.
An 18th-century monk, played with intense fervour by Quentin Dolmaire, is excited by the radicalism of the age and the sensuality of nature in Clément Schneider’s potent first feature.
Born in 1989 in France, Clément Schneider studied filmmaking at La Fémis where he graduated in 2013. He directed several shorts during his studies, but also self-produced and directed a feature film SKETCHES ON THE THEME OF LOVE. Since he finished La Fémis, he co-founded a production company Les Films d’Argile, in order to produce independant films – fiction and documentaries. He also keeps writing and directing his own films, like AMONG THE BEASTS, finalist of Sopadin Junior Best Script Price 2015.
