Director Statement

'Soap' is a sexual fantasy of breaking and entering; its characters are trapped in a farce replete with hot criminals, cheating lovers, melodramatic revelations, and a mysterious pile of raspberry jelly.

But if the film is a guilty pleasure, then it’s also a formal experiment. We shot in a confined space, making use of offscreen action and sound, restricting ourselves to close-ups once Sami and Sophia step into the bath. I wanted to move beyond the farcical elements as the pair get to know one another; to capture a tangible sense of their desire, regret and hope.

The bath is a soapy realm of sexual transgression, a place where old is made new, where identities shape and blend. As Sami points out, wiping away his shaving foam, it’s just like the cinema.
