Synopsis Respire is the story of a free and happy friendship that turns into a series of exchanges which are actually attacks, dialogues which are actually stabbings, behaviours according to very real roles which are very present in our society and tell how do we deal with knowing how fragile we are. How the Rational World crumbles against the Sensitive World of men, or women in this case, as males are not the only ones to fall prone to their lust for violence. Basically, when we talk about intimacy society turns women into most skilled ones in transcending the platforms intellectuals use to decide social transgression becomes art. We could talk about the teenage drive, about revisiting Carmen, about a nice technical exercise and even better emotional hit that doesn’t miss the audience. But that corrupt and perfect link between intimacy, women and destructive dynamics as sublime acts is what creates this extraordinary, original and in the end new and necessary proposal by Mélanie Laurent.
