(at Elafonisi, Greece)
You are so beautiful, I don’t want eat you.
Constantin Pilavios (Κωνσταντίνος Πιλάβιος), Film director.
So this “little” commercial just started its journey around the Internet.
Personally, I smiled when I saw that the end and the whole feeling of the film resembles my “Small Pleasures”.
I don’t know whether the agency that produced this commercial was even remotely aware of my film, but if they weren’t, they were definately aware of the scene in Jean-Pierre Jeune’s ”Amelie”… After all that’s where I got my inspiration from.
I’ve always been jealous of “Amelie”, and making “Small Pleasures” was like an homage to it.
