The Directors Cut is tribute to the crew who pulled favours, turning the original around in under four days. What remained unseen in the original was the three incredibly talented dancers who gave the film movement, character, feelings and freedom. They are now a big part of the film and integral to the story.
I also felt the film needed a story behind it, voiced in French (with a gesture to the Cartier birthplace), Brooke crafted a gripping monologue that fit like a tee.
The sound design and composition was also of great importance, so it was a given that the services of Jonny Higgins were used. His wild energy and passion poured throughout gives the film the dips and turns, and takes you on a wild sensory journey.
