Short Film: MISTER EGG, 8min., UK, Comedy

9de9565c83 poster

As Paul serenely prepares his daily breakfast, the ordinariness of his morning routine is interrupted by an unexpected encounter: Mister Egg, the well-mannered egg which is being cooked by Paul, engages him in a philosophical conversation from the bottom of the frying pan. On one hand Mister Egg supports the equality between him and Paul; on the other hand Paul claims his superiority as a human over an egg. When Mister Egg wins the philosophical debate, pride and hunger take over Paul, who, right after having recognised his rhetorical defeat, mercilessly eats Mister Egg. Doing so, however, Paul chokes and collapses, pathetically dying.
Just as Mister Egg foresaw, Paul goes through in a transcendental journey across the universe and the Earth, which ends in a quiet house kitchen; an unlucky girl discovers it, to her detriment, while she’s preparing her breakfast: Paul, reborn as an egg, shamelessly approaches her.

Director Biography – Valentin Petit (THE NOISE OF THE LIGHT)

Bc43f6865a headshot

Valentin Petit is a young French director based in Paris. He wrote several video clips for street music artists and directed a lot of commercials for famous brands such as Puma, Unicef, Adidas or Canal +. His passion for travel naturally led him to fiction, through which he was able to express a more neo-melancholic creation. He is currently developing many personal projects, among which short films that won multiple awards in French and international film festivals, like his latest experimental film: « A Portrait of Rafel Delalande ».

Director Statement

Following my previous works (Anthophobia and A Portrait of Rafel Delalande), I wanted Le Bruit de la Lumière as a crossroad between a visual experience and a film fantastic. Through this combination, I wanted to tell a story about the synaesthesia phenomenon. I discovered this feeling which some people experience in the autobiographic novel from Daniel Tammet, Born On A Blue Day.

In order to create Lou, the main character, with Guillaume (co-writer), we went a little bit further by giving her a supernatural ability to generate sound when she is touch by the light. This choice show our fascination and our inability to understand something which is so intimate and personal.

The Fantastic treatment of the story is also a way to exacerbate the connections between our main characters. Marius and Pablo are facing an opportunity which is difficult to avoid, despite their friendship with Lou. How would we react in front of such a phenomenon? Moreover, how are we actually reacting to a person who describes her synaesthesia?

Pablo and Marius make a disturbing discovery about their childhood friend Lou: she appears to be able to synthesise into sound the light she is exposed to. But as she soon becomes an instrument of their musical experiences, her gift turns into a sort of curse…
