Review

Aspiring French filmmaker Luc Plissonneau presents a conventional unconventional love story of "old" mentor and young student in his latest short entitled Les Mains. He is a struggling concert pianist, she his dreaming muse. They fall in love and live out an arch-French romance. This may not sound like groundbreaking material, but if Plissonneau treads familiar ground during the majority of his little film, he certainly hits a different note with his elegant, bittersweet and thoroughly romantic ending. We're treated to an inspired piece of filmmaking in combination with a great artistic performance by world-renouned pianist Ivan Ilic whose performance is full of naturalness. Plissonneau raises expectations in front of his pending feature film debut.
