The Rules of Attraction
Take a brief, sensual ride through the raptures and realities of love. Using imagery, motion and color - and no words - filmmaker Elyse Couvillion tells the passionate tale of two soul mates. The idea came to her when listening to Tchaikovsky's "Coffee," from the Nutcracker ballet, which is played throughout the film. Sweet may be the most beautifully shot film on mini-DV, thanks to a new technology created by San Francisco's The Orphanage that allows video to look amazingly like 35mm film. It also helps to have a five-time Academy Award-winning cinematographer (Allen Daviau, E.T. and The Color Purple) shoot your film.
