Art versus reality.

by Andrew MacGregor


Short Films: “Brigitte Moreau” - 3 mins 58s

Life is not always black and white... unless you're a French New Wave poseur, that is. Writer and director Danny Sangra's amusing short film follows one such individual as she imagines cultural notoriety with the likes of Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Dutronc, and Jean-Paul Belmondo in her minimalist apartment... only for the real world to spoil 'Brigitte Moreau''s fun.

Her too cool for school (or a dying relative) attitude is nicely brought to life by actor Valentine Payen, who impresses as both a deluded aesthete and a sibling on the back foot. Even if arthouse cinema isn't your tasse de thé, so to speak, an arch lead performance and Sangra's wry script ensure a fruitful watch.
