Profile

 

Uzbek & Rica  Philippe André est un réalisateur multiple et complexe reconnu pour la puissance narrative et visuelle de ses films. 

Inspired   I love anti-heroes. They are more ordinary and thus heroic. Human, like us.

Carte Blanche  Inspirations

David Reviews  Philippe Andre has proven immensely adept across a range of film-making disciplines...

Harrystaut  Blog Philosophie (...) J’ajoute qu’avec le recul, et en jetant de temps en temps un coup d’œil à la page personnelle de Philippe André, je me rends comte qu’il est l’un des rares réalisateurs qui, de projet en projet (clips, publicité, films…) parvient à conserver une unité de style. Comme quoi on pourrait imaginer que dans ce monde extrêmement contraint par les exigences commerciales, il puisse y avoir, aussi, une « politique des auteurs ».

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.

Another Chance

PromoMagAndré has shot an original and captivating short film.

HarryStaut Philosophie.  Miraculeusement, 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.
