BASED ON A TRUE MOVIE
Some movie scenes are so engrained in our minds that rethinking them from a different angle seems impossible. Spoof embraces this challenge using two figures of speech: the synecdoche, the part for the whole, and the synthesis.
A single shot, to represent an imagery we’re familiar with, but with something different, a change of perspective that pays tribute to classic American movies, through a distorted European lens.
The further we move from the original models, the stronger the characters’ motivations grow, giving them the dignity of new self-sufficient heroes, fighting to get recognized on their own.
In the end, Bond, the lead character, realizes he only exists since he’s not able to reach his goal and this epiphany will cause the end of his existence as a character, just before another world behind the camera will give him new life.
The concept behind Spoof is to go beyond spoofs.
