Delicate Gravity

Variety  Delicate Gravity leads Palm Springs Shortfest winners

Hollywood Reporter  The best of the festival award goes to Philippe André

Indie Wire   Yvan Attal and Anne Parillaud are wonderful as two lonely spirits (…)  

French Toast Sunday  Delicate Gravity is one of the most genuine, thoughtful dramas about human connection we’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing.

Way too Indie.  Delicate Gravity is a unique insight into the lives of two lost individuals, and a clever production that continues to draw us in even in its final moments.

Just Celebrity  Philippe André created a heartwarming film that keeps you glued to the screen from start to finish…

Female First.  Philippe André Exclusive Interview.

The London Film Review  Delicate Gravity is not a big film about important topics, its just a story about one little moment in time, a chance of connection between two people and as such is a lovely film.

Critical Movie Critics  It’s a great, unique hook that is well developed by André. The themes are smartly set up and the point of conflict is equally unusual and believable.

3 DotMag. Delicate Gravity and writer Philippe André.

Woman around town.  Delicate Gravity is beautifully acted and filmed.

Film Shortage. … director Philippe André used his French charm to glue us to the screen from beginning to end.

Vulture Hound.  Delicate Gravity is an exceptional short film about small moment in time that deserves the many awards it already has.

Following the Nerd.  Interview

Back to the movies.  I love how the story drags you in, a fitting title as the film itself has its own gravitational pull that brings you into the narrative.

Arté Média. Philippe André a su créer un film émouvant qui vous tient en haleine du début à la fin…

The Rope

Promo mag  It’s a tense with a surprising and controversial ending.

HarryStaut. … je mets ici en tension le court métrage de Philippe André, intitulé « The Rope » et un extrait de « l’Etre et le Néant« , de Sartre.

Placebo – Song to say goodbye

PromoMag  He imagined a young boy who looks after a middle-aged man – presumably his father – in a compelling case of age and role reversal that sways between realism and surrealism.

Rock sur Ordonnance  (extrait du livre de Thierry Desaules)

Les InRocks   On pourrait croire que l’enfant est psychologiquement malade, mais en réalité, les rôles sont inversés. 

YouTube   What a fucking masterpiece… This video has made me cry so many times …Amazing! Absolutely LOVE the cinematic video. It’s a great short film…

 

Morcheeba – World looking in

Campaign Screen.  A sci-fi-Avengers-style adventure in which Morcheeba have a crazy journey in a toy car.

InStyle   Director Philippe André has put a surreal, witty spin on the video of Morcheeba...

Promo. A combinaison of English eccentricity and French flair is at the heart of the promo for Morcheeba.

Televisual  A soft subtle look…that makes it more like film than video.

Shots  I found a lo-fi way of doing it.

Zoo  André’s video does more to capture the mood of the song.

 

Roger Sanchez – You can’t change me

Campaign Screen  what would happen if we were on the web physically…

PromoMag  …this is a sci-fi thriller fantasy (….) what if we were controllable by the web?

 

Roger Sanchez – Another Chance

PromoMag. André has shot an original and captivating short film.

HarryStaut PhilosophieMiraculeusement, dans ce clip, tout fonctionne, y compris les moments où le coeur disparait, laissant place à l’expression inquiète et fatiguée, sur ce visage, de la déchirure des sentiments et de la vacance du coeur.

Zoo   …over a minute of dialogue in the middle of the track adds to the atmosphere of this unusually emotive video.

Vimeo Likes. This is one of the best video EVER!

Campaign Screen. Philippe André …has created a poignant short film…

Creative. I spend…long days on the pitch with no reference material…
