2nd Edition of the European Cinematography AWARDS

Best Film of the Month

TITLE: THE RED CASE


DIRECTOR: LORAN PERRIN


ABOUT THE FILM: Sarah is a young nurse who loves jazz. When a mysterious musician she sees in the street gets admitted in her hospital, she suddenly feels the need to take care of him. But her new patient seems to be more preoccupied by his missing red case than his own health…

Director Statement

The red case takes again the most universal scenario base: the encounter between a man and a woman. If times are constantly changing and tastes change, this postulate continues to resonate in the daily life of each one of us. And for good reason, it is these encounters that forge our personalities, influence our choices and define our paths. In the era of social networks and “virtual friends”, social, political and religious dramas, I was anxious to return to the simplicity of an encounter and the complexity of all that it entails. Of course there are different kinds of encounters, the love meeting being one of the most developed in movies. But having become a father recently, I naturally turned to what could be closest to a father-daughter relationship. I wanted to confront not only two generations, but also two radically opposed personalities of different ages, sexes and universes, who would eventually discover a common interest, something universal and unifying but other than love…
Sarah is a young bachelor of about thirty years, invested in her work, appreciated by all, but rather lonely. Like many other women of her age, she no longer truly believes in love and prefers a few unadorned adventures to rare and painful long relationships. What sets her apart from others is her love for jazz that was transmitted to her by her mother at an early age. It was this passion that she had not shared with anyone before, that might change her life. Dom is a strange man. Tall, imposing, with a marked face, he is dressed like a tramp and never separates himself from a mysterious red instrument case that he protects like a treasure. No doubt a little crazy, it is nevertheless wise and touching when it comes to talking about jazz, a style of music that he knows well since he played it for years. Unpopular and whimsical at first glance, it nevertheless seems to hide certain traits of character much more attractive. They will both observe each other, tame each other, and find the father or daughter they have never had. A feeling that speaks to many people; This feeling of filling a void, whether with a parent, a brother or a sister, a friend, a love… And often this need is sated too quickly, too brutally, which can do as much harm as good. The question is therefore what ultimately comes out. Tears ? Happiness ? Hope ? Maybe a little of the three… Emotion, that’s for sure.
The red case is a film that wants to touch all the generations, which speaks of love, solitude, hope, which raises questions that will remain for a long time, which causes laughter like tears, and whose music Is the ingredient that binds it all together. His message is clear: whatever the person, the place or the time, an encounter will always be unique and will always upset a life. Even if it’s not always the one you think…
