This is what it's all about.

«And the Lord God formed a woman from Adam’s rib», so says Genesis. Adrien arrives in the countryside where Louise, with the help of her friend Lydia, has transformed the family farm into a veritable Garden of Eden. Will Adrien, a young man from the city, fall under the spell of the place and of Louise? Is male-female love possible? Or is it better to live alone than to live in bad company?

My project is special because ...

Nature shots and tranquility. A universal theme - the relationship between man and woman - and a contemporary adaptation of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz’s work: «Adam et Eve» (1932). Since I first read this novel I have wanted to make a film based on it. On one hand because Ramuz’ language is strongly tied to my region and on the other hand because of the topic.

This is what I need backing for.

For the actors’ fees (André Vauthey, Marie Zechiel and Jana Sturny), the rent of the material (Kulturbüro Bern), the DOP (Emmanuel Ekejiuba) the catering etc. I need some financial support and would be happy to get you on board as producers of the film!
