Apparences, A Surreal Short Film That Imagines the City of Paris as an Eerily Deserted Movie Set

Apparences” is a short, surreal video from the French filmmaking duo Claire and Max of Menilmonde that imagines the buildings and iconic landmarks of Paris as site-specific props of an eerily deserted movie set.

Has it ever happened to you to ask yourself the questions: “What if everything around us was false? And if our environment was ultimately a single movie set? Would we really be real in this setting? “. Many issues that fuel both an imaginary but also pose those appearances and appearance. We therefore offer 4 minutes immersion in a Paris where the facades have been reworked in order to better immerse themselves in this world so strange.
