About a year and a half ago director Julie Gautier performed one of her many duties as an artist in society. She gave the world Ama – a film, a story that can be interpreted in any fashion. “There is no imposition, only suggestions. I wanted to share my biggest pain in this life with this film. For this is not too crude, I covered it with grace. To make it not too heavy, I plunged it into the water. I dedicate this film to all the women of the world,” she stated.
Ama says just as much with music and images as a motivational speaker can utter to masses. Beautifully choreographed by Ophélie Longuet to composer Ezio Bosso‘s Rain, in Your Black Eyes, the film spends most of its time under water allowing its viewers to experience filmmaking, dance, and music under subliminal means they could not have imagined until this point. This won’t be just a film you’ll like right away, you’ll return to it being reminded not all art was created to tell the stories of its makers, but also stories “everyone can interpret in their own way, based on their own experience,” as said by Julie.
