Cadavre exquis

"Cadavre exquis" is a film that brings us towards an “exquisite corpse” (a French surrealist literary game) of quotes from surrealist authors, collected here by André Breton:

“J’ai mis mon képi dans la cage et je suis sorti avec l’oiseau sur la tête.”
/ “I put my cap/kepi in the cage and went out with the bird on my head.”
(Jacques Prévert)

“Loin du temps, de l’espace, un homme est égaré, mince comme un cheveu, ample comme l’aurore.”
/ “Far from time, space, a man is lost, thin as a hair, wide as dawn.”
(Raymond Queneau)

“Je cherche l’or du temps.”
/ “I am looking for the gold of time.”
(André Breton)

“Certains prophétisent la fin de l’éternel. Nous nous contenterons de travailler à la fin de l’immobile.”
/ “Some prophecy the end of the Eternal. We will just work on the end of Immobility.”
(René Crevel)

“Je suis ce que je suis : le bébé d’une époque.”
/ “I am what I am: the baby of an era.”(Arthur Cravan)

Director Biography - Guillaume Reynaudo

After 2 years as an International Business Developer in the luxury sector and more than four years as a Lobbyist, I grew a passion for filmmaking when I created my first company in 2015 - Happiness Watchers.
After 4 four years directed this company, I decided to started a new adventure (2019) : get started myself as a film director.
After two years, I am now a director, mostly specialised in fashion, music clip and short movies.
