Director’s statement

This movie was initially intended to be a music video for one of the bands I’ve been involved in1 but ended up becoming a silent movie in its own right. I always believe that the audience is much more intelligent than people in this business usually think, so I wanted to write a history that could fold upon itself”, only revealing its true meaning by taking a closer look at the story. I also wanted to make a short statement regarding the great tempo in which the modern industry is moving in, leaving no room for thoroughness, thus making it harder to avoid errors while giving a miniature portrait of a successful woman in her last hours on the planet, haunted by the memory of her lost love, like a small intriguing puzzle which gives a second dimension to the film when you finally see the whole picture.

Director’s statement

Consumerism is peaking both in the West and now in the East as well. I wanted to try my hands on a small scenario with a monologue, and luckily I also got the chance of working with a Sanford Meisner1-educated actor. I am also a great admirer of Hitchcock (who isn’t). I like the saying from Truffaut that his love scenes were filmed like murder scenes, and the murder scenes like love scenes” With this in mind, I wanted to tell the story of a young woman so addicted to shopping that she had to go on a rehab, with the consequences that would follow; both as a statement of the ever increasing consumerism, especially in the rich Northern European countries, but also as a humble, impromptu homage to Hitchcock and film-noire.
