Caught between what was and what could be, a woman who has lost her lust for life in the world’s most passionate city, takes a chance. –Outfest
Director obviously has a crush on Jean Pierre-Jeunet and his visual style, not to mention his musical style and penchant for quirky, observational moments. While Lust For Life is enjoyable at 9 min & each shot is beautifully framed, you get the sense you're watching an Amelie fanfilm. Every Jeunet trick is here: odd girl with red-striped shirt and Tautou-inspired fringe, accordion soundtrack, coffee shops.
