Description: As its game indicates, the topics in Production Stills is a series of production stills of a movie that was never made, and that at the same time is the movie we are watching. A perfectly enclosed narrative of its own production: the photo is one long take (11 minutes) of a wall on which a hand sequentially pins a number of Polaroids, one after the other. The Polaroids depict the team making the film; the synchronous sound allows us to hear in ‘real time’, their chatter and the hum of the still camera, so that we can anticipate the images and assign faces to the voices we hear. - Artefact Festival

Jean Pierre Limosin has taken on a storyline interlacing memory, love, history, and passion that not only has pertinence in our galloping society of hasty encounters and transient relationships but also pleads a situation for folks with cognitive dysfunction. Unfortunately the movie is marketed as a comedy and while there are some curious incidents that cause a bit of nervous laughter, this viewer sees the work as more of a hard struggle for those affected by mental malfunctions that affect not only the patient but also those who surround him.Graham/Pablo (the handsome and gifted Spanish actor Eduardo Noriega - 'Burnt Money', 'Abre los ojos', The Devil's Backbone', etc), though obviously bright and capable, works as a photocopy clerk for a huge company, but suffers from memory loss, a deficit that prevents his remembering his wife Isabelle (Paz Vega) and son Antoine (Lény Bueno), his greatest mate Fred (Eric Caravaca), and his fellow coworkers. It also obscures his memory of flirtations and sexual encounters, including libidinous frequent seductions from his boss Sabine (Nathalie Richard). When a temporary worker Irene (Anna Mougalis) is hired Graham is said to present her the building and they end up on the roof in a passionate embrace - which of course Graham instantly forgets. But everyday encounters with Irene gradually become so rich in passion that they somehow start to register on Graham's tabula rasa mind condition! Graham's means of survival lies in the notebook attached to his wrist in which he keeps a diary of all happenings to remind him of every day's events. This 'artificial memory/identity' provides notification for Irene, for Fred, and for his doctors and every of them has reasons to test this diary to their own ends: Fred while supportive of his mate is now in love with Isabelle, and Irene finds evidence of Graham's affection for her that suggests to her a way of supporting Graham restore his memory - and in doing so, possibly victory his permanent allegiance to her.There are some bumpy portions of this movie that make confusion at times, but in retrospect one wonders if this might have been the intention of the director - placing us as viewers into the mindset of short term memory loss to better understand Graham's plight! The cast is uniformly powerful and Eduardo Noriega once again proves that he is fully capable of taking on a challenging role and finding the humanity within. Yes, there are some graphic sex scenes but they serve to intensify the flow of the storyline in view of the condition of Graham to whom each encounter has all the lust of a first encounter with an unknown lover! Recommended. Grady Harp
a disconcerting production, full of charm for an art flick that tries to envision the relation between love (and lust) and memories. This is the strength of the movie (a universal theme about which there is much to say) and its weakness because the director has not followed his concepts to its logical conclusions. One cannot support thinking that this movie should have been really perfect if the narration were less syncopated. The similarities with memento are obvious but the loss of memory here seems to be more an excuse than a "raison d'être" because the love storyline between Graham and Irène gives rise to numerous interesting themes (the happy-go-lucky Amnesiac opposed to his passionate lover, the naive Amnesiac opposed to folks who take advantage of him, the carefree wandering life and the freedom of love when you are gratis of your memories, etc....) without totally exploiting them.Nevertheless the charm of the movie lies in the method the camera is in love with Graham (the Spanish actor Eduardo Noriega)and thus continually spies on his sensual body with a certain sense of decency. The pretty Spanish actor is really the epicenter of the movie and gives an undisputed sensual color. The French actress Anna Mouglalis is also excellent in her role. Nudity does not aim at being a provocation, sensuality and pleasure seem to be devoid of any guilt (beware because it might place off some viewers) in this film.to sum up : a smart and sensual attempt to deal with the theme of amnesia with casualness and thoughtlessness
I found this movie enjoyably lightweight, like the sensation of discovering romance, a flirtation with potentially philosophical overtones that are serious enough to be enchanting but without being distracting.Graham has short term memory loss (groan! Is this a rip-off of Memento?) . . . but wait a minute, see if the style attracts you before we look at the substance.Fast-cutting shots (with almost a nod to À Bout de Soufflé) catch us effortlessly into the globe that Graham and everyone around him has learnt to manage (He has a job doing photocopies in a huge office). This is a globe of romance and flirtation, but the girls in his life are aware of his illness. Acknowledged influences contain Japanese photography and Japanese bondage. The occasionally disjointed editing serves as a reminder of his mental state.I invite you to go back in time, to think of your first date with someone who soon became very unique (or who might have been). Think of that moment, if you will, before that first kiss. Isn't there that mission on a date where you both know it's going to happen? You can almost sense what it will be like. You can imagine that first brush of the lips, their breath vs your skin, before passion locks your two souls together! Their mouth approaches yours, tentatively. Can you almost feel the moment stretch out in time?A celebrated Japanese photographer, on the DVD featurette, explains how he uses objects to invade zone and maintain continuity, extending intimacy beyond the immediate of a still photograph. For Graham, that moment lasts a lifetime. He has to write notes to remind himself who he is in love with. His lover has the advantage that she knows his secrets, knows what turns him on, but can also delight in witnessing his newness, when every time is the first time. It's like a Groundhog Day in reverse, forever the thrill of the new.In the story, complications set in when Graham 'sleeps with another people'. He maintains his childlike innocence and tries to be a decent, moral chap (made harder by being dashingly nice looking). The folks around him are faced with losing their own 'innocence' and the ingenuous beauty that goes with that. It is their personalities, rather than his, that face the fall from Eden. The entire storyline is said with a realistic, inquisitive, and sometimes kinky sexuality. Nudity is used to make a sense of wonder instead of the titters so common in a British film or the embarrassment in an American one. With magnificent acting throughout, we can't support but admire how wonderfully at ease the French are with their bodies.Novo does not have the impressiveness of Memento. Memento thought of the concept first. Novo is not a taut thriller. But it takes the device of short-term memory loss and uses it, even if it is with limited success, to tell something that is greater than the sum of its parts.
