Direction: Matthias Muller, Christoph Girardet
The Muller-Girardet tandem presents us with their wonderful collection of film childhoods, where there is no lack of Oliver Twist, Léaud in The 400 Blows, Caussat and Bruel in Detroit Rock City and the great Pascal Lamorisse in his unease after losing his red balloon. The magic of this mixture is to make children fulfil the same dream and to become the same brats under the sheets in their bedrooms that are afraid and dream when their beds become a spaceship that travels to infinity and enters into the darkness of the night. Childhood on the pillow of fear and innocence. And mystery. The great art of this pair of filmmakers-collectors who always create films with their own sense based on scenes that have already been filmed by others. The voice of John Smith in a text that is worthy of being printed, that advances by individual words like a countdown of syntagmas: light bright bed boy… means that the credits of this film of films is an authentic dream team in which Giacomo Puccini also appears in the sound credits.
