Film Festival and Sales:
As a person, I'm always interested in small stories that are filled with big emotions and complex characters, but as a filmmaker, I don't always choose to present those emotions and feelings in a very direct manner, especially as emotions tend to be very subjective matters that are entirely dependent on personal experience. But I am very interested in complex characters and situations where very little stands between what's right or wrong. I'm most interested in how these characters feel and what they need, especially characters who are guided by desperation, anxiety, passion and love.
In my movies, my characters are always deeply affected by dreams, and so it is again in Before We Fall In Love Again, a film set mostly in the night, and where the journey of the two male leads takes place in both a very familiar and unreal landscape. It's a place where the possibilities of their existences and that of the woman they both love might be nothing more pieces of memories, the dreams of memories. Their search for the truth proceeds only from the information provided by their memories. Trapped in an unreal state, or a state in which reality remains only in its most basic forms, both men need to wake up in order to continue with their normal lives.
Photographed in black and white meant to align the emotions of the characters with the moods and atmosphere of their surroundings, the film allows these characters to remain like beautiful passionate lovers trapped in a bleak black & white film, where only by rediscovering their frozen human emotions will they finally recover the capability to live, laugh and love.
BEFORE WE FALL IN LOVE AGAIN is a movie about dreaming your memories and recovering from betrayal in the strangest possible ways.
Malaysia, June 2006.
