dress a gangster these days?
this thought was with me the last two weeks, not finding an adequate solution made me nervous, kept me awake and followed me everywhere.
it's been a while that making costumes felt that difficult. i totally underestimated the job to create a good and unique look for ten men, all of them criminals, each of them living another facette of the whole aspect.
i want to transform a jean pierre melville mood into our world, making a small, fine, dark genre film, taking place 2009.
we came near a solution yesterday, i hope that feeling will last until we start shooting in september.
and how am i going to dress the only women in the film?
