Director Statement

Are childhood friends different from friends from adulthood? How are they different? Or how are they not different? What are the bases necessary, to claim to be one's best friend, to someone met for the first time? Or is it, not to be claimed?
    The film sought to explore the two or more lines of possibilities stemming from these questions. As a result, the nostalgic line had taken the stance of favoring childhood friends over adulthood friend, while the more realistic line took the stance of discarding such favors as fantasme.
Such differences began to shape themselves in form, such as in color, and are also reflected in the displacement (agencement) of the diegeses (the more fantastic vs. the more realistic).
