Synopsis

ORIGINAL SCRIPT BY YANNIK RUAULT

On a ranch-style farm in south west of France, Jane Cavalieri, 14, lives protected by the love of her father Ludovic and his grandfather Papifou (Granda-di-dou). The sudden death of her father, in a terrorist attack, plunges Jane into a waking dream.




" Abrahadabra is a gentle and delicate film, contemplative in structure, but concrete in its detailsBy holding eventfulness at bay, this film achieves an inner calm and mindfulness unusual for the cinema, and by using an innovative combination of camera and tablet photography, it achieves a novel and rewarding relationship with its central characters."

Dr. James Zborowski - Hull University Film Department.



The Digital offers us an immaterial connection with human souls

That's what says Ludovic Cavalieri to his daughter. For this reason, after the death of her father, Jane imagines to talking to him with her digital tablet. This film is about the impressiveness of the dream and the spiritual in the life, particular in ordealsThis legend illustrates the theme of transmission that the film picks up in a subtle way.



Nature takes care of us when we experience difficult events

Nature is a central and spiritual dimension of this environmental film. After the death of her father, Jane (and her grand-father) finds this lush nature like a peaceful friend



"With his first feature film, Yannik Ruault is putting the onus on the spectator to enjoy a magic realism! The soundtrack and music is, again, worthy of note, indeed immaculate, as is the photography. Remember the actress Noémie Glairacq." 

Dr. Geoff Hare - Newcastle University Honorary Senior Research.



Michelangelo, the legend of the prima fotografia

According to the legend, the smile of Michelangelo's Lover, Tommaso dei Cavalieri, would be conserved on a photography in a secret box.
