Director Statement

We live in a world in which men and women are not equal. This is so evident that it seems almost ridiculous to start my statement with such an obvious and recognized truth. That's why we made "You mean...us", also showing how difficult it's a decision that happens in almost every relationsiph: having kids...and unexpected kids. In this short film we've tried to break down the stereotypes and put a man in the skin of a woman. The decision making is not the same, the scene becomes strange. Is it a comedy or a drama? We expect the viewer to formulate the same questions on the current situation of women.
