An Italian film-director - Luciano Emmer - and a French writer - Alice Ferney, well-known in Italy mostly for her novel La conversazione amorosa. A master of images and a literary talent.
A conversation of glances, smiles, nods and waves that turns into an affectionate interview made of reciprocities and affinities - between two artists in an effort to grasp at the secret of characters they are creating, aiming at finding out the true meaning of an encounter, of seduction and love.
A conversation around Time and how to steal it, multiply it, deny it, each time language meets language.
"What is my book about? About how I became a mad person."
