A stellar girl, a radiant girl who clutches onto the moon and arrives in an unknown land, on unmarred ground, as immaculate as her white ensemble. Is this the end of reality, the beginning of a dream?
The new Vanessa Bruno film directed by Stephanie Di Giusto presents a face, that of Kate Bosworth. She lives in an illusory house, set in the desert of an improbable space-time where anything is possible, whether weightlessness or challenging the course of time. Her past resurfaces. It is airy and subconscious: a child’s hand caressing her face, a swimming pool in sunny California, laughter, life.
Kate rushes forth and doesn’t look back, there were memories and now there is the horizon, a future to invent, to imagine, like a futuristic fairy tale. She finally reveals herself to the moon, like a young woman messiah illuminated from within by telluric thoughts. Beyond its dreamlike nature, the film is a reflection of the Vanessa Bruno collection, a candor of tone in which the shell – the pearly softness of the clothes – is exiled beyond the contingencies of everyday life. A Style, a mode of dress in lieu of sunscreen against the surrounding somber grayness from which the silhouette and the face of actress Kate Bosworth radiate hope. A weightless film where imagination reigns and safeguards a purity that nothing can hinder. A girl with her head in the clouds, who clings to her dreams. Or on towards the stars?
