Victor lives in solitude. The walls of his apartment are invisible and can be seen through. But Victor does not see the passers-by in the street, nor do they see him. Although the world is just a few steps away, Victor is hoping that one day someone will knock at his door.
Fracture is an experimental fantasy film. It explores the alienation of solitude in a society where communication is becoming virtual. Through the invisible walls, Victor and the outside world exist side by side but never enter into contact. Despite the proximity, a knock at the door is almost delusional.
The director gives special thanks to scientist and composer Beat Gysin, who oversaw the project with priceless technical rigour and artistic creativity. He also warmly thanks the École Supérieure Musique et Danse – ESMD, Lille, for having enriched the project with the world of Liszt.
