In a dark room, we find two men forehead to forehead, sitting on the floor, heads connected by a helmet with an organic look. They are surrounded by silhouettes motionless and tense. In parallel in a sanitized white space, these two men face each other at a distance. They seem to have the power to influence the behavior of the other. Their violent and fierce manipulations quickly blow them to the limit of the knockout. This struggle has the effect of animating the individuals around them in the dark space. Alain Chamfort is the link between these two spaces. He is the witness and the narrator. He walks in the dark towards a ray of light. In the air there are particles that gradually draw a yellow landscape, a chaotic exterior that indicates a post-apocalyptic era. A child appears in the distance through the yellowish fog. He walks in the midst of a group of women and men of all ages walking in the same direction, looking out at the horizon of a new land. NOTE The duo evokes the contradictions of a single individual facing himself, he also represents humanity. The clip shows a dark face that gradually evolves towards sharing, listening, understanding. It is a form of rebirth by setting off dust in an animal movement that is humanized. The spaces of protection, the different closed spaces, the charged and colored air, indicate an unbreathable exterior, but it is not the nothingness ... The fact that the frozen bodies come back to life during the evolution of the duel, suggests the influence of our actions on everything around us and that man would have the power to reverse the course of things, the possibility of a second chance. The dust brings back to a primitive side, to the stars, to the universe. CHOREOGRAPHY The choreography and its setting in space leave a static state, the register of the intimate evolving towards bodies in full effusion. There are two distinct choreographies, that of the duo of dancers where the fight evolves towards a form of harmony, and this same duo immobile in another space with dancers (r) all around, linked to each other in a circle who eventually relax and become animated. Impulses, uncontrolled gestures begin to emerge. The dance is inspired by trances, rituals, traditional dances and martial arts.

A desperate artist is losing himself in the alluring illusion of a perfect love, that wakens dreams and desires that lay forever dormant. A love, that mirrors a relationship free of judgment and expectations. But our Hero’s past looms over his happiness like a dark cloud, soon to erupt. PERFECT LOVE is a tragic comedy about a man's attempt to cope with loneliness and isolation. The film polarizes and offers everyone his or her personal space for projection.
