Légende de Jean L’inverse

Posted March 26th, 2010 by Ben

This is Philippe Lamensch from Belgium talking to me after winning an award for the editing in his first short film Légende de Jean L’inverse…

It’s really great that Ecu provides ‘trailers’ for all their films online, it makes a blog so much more useful and compelling. Shame though that in most cases this is just the opening minute or so as that rarely gives the full flavour. Here though is the first minute or so of what was one of my stand-out favourite films in the festival.

What this fails to convey is quite what a bizarre and dryly hilarious story is about to unfold. Achingly Belgian and charmingly oddball this is a fantastic piece of filmmaking that can’t fail to delight any fans of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Wes Anderson or others of that off kilter bent.

Reader, I have no idea how on Earth you’ll ever get to see this film but do try. Do try.
