David Knight - 4th Feb 2015

Loïc Andrieu has worked as steadicam operator on some of the best videos coming out of France in recent times. But now he's taken the directing reins himself to create this scintillating visual spectacle for Keffer's Rouge, in which a diverse range of intensely dramatic scenes are linked by the actual or impending presence of the red stuff. 

A stricken girl by her Fifties car; Samurai warriors preparing for a duel; a knight in armour fending off the enemy; a naked girl covered in blood wields a machine gun... In each case, Loïc establishes a gripping moment, cutting between each vignette and allowing a little more information to reveal and alter perceptions.

It's a tour de force, clearly a labour of love, and grips like a vice – culminating in that wave of plasma gushing around the spooky little girl on the stairs...
