Starring Belgian model and actress Delfine Bafort, last seen on screen in Vincent Gallo’s elusive 2010 feature Promises Written on Water, the film revolves around Bafort’s character Caroline, a thirty-something fashion model. In the course of an unplanned break from work on the Amalfi Coast, she comes into contact with a younger colleague, Charlotte – played by 22-year-old US model Ashley Smith – who possesses all the glow and confidence of the hot new fashion-world discovery. The encounter causes Caroline to re-evaluate her priorities, and to confront the challenges of ageing and the passing of time.
In addition to securing the services of the two busy and talented actress/models, Lindquist and Kemball managed to assemble a top-flight technical crew, all of whom were working for scale. They include Catalan cinematographer Ferran Paredes Rubio, a rising star on the European arthouse scene (his most recent DoP gig, Italian film Zoran, My Nephew the Idiot, was recently selected for the Critics’ Week sidebar at the Venice Film Festival), and editor Pani Ahmadi Moore, whose feature film collaborations include Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Tamara Drewe. The film was co-produced by Barbara Bruni, Silvia Ricciardi and Manila Mazzarini of Italian production company Josei. Antonio and Carla Sersale of the Sirenuse hotel, where much of the film was to be set, generously agreed to act as executive producers.
