So unexpected ! A beautiful, moving film. I would not have expected a poster like that to illustrate the movie but that’s the thrill of it. Teissig is a magician of brut/primal/savage collage, I love this set construction, old fashioned spirit. Difficult to explain sometimes (or no necessary), it’s an immersion through a unic and artistic vision. Very happy and greatful to have this piece :)
