Theo and the Metamorphosis

Cinema | (18) | 96 minutes |

In a remote house in the forest, Théo, a young man with Down’s syndrome, lives in seclusion with his father who is a photographer. The two get along in their daily lives without much talk. Théo loves nature and has a passion for drawing. Every day he spends time training his body, his balance, his reflexes and his inner strength, and dreams of becoming a samurai. When his father goes away to an exhibition, Théo decides to start a new life and his extraordinary journey begins.

Odoul shows us the world from Théo’s perspective, in dreamlike surreal compositions. Constantly accompanied by his inner voice, Théo’s thoughts and emotions are brought to life in a dynamic, ever-changing visual language. His desires unfold in a flood of impressions and experiences, and the days alone in the forest become a journey of self-discovery and self-determination. Sometimes hallucinatory, often shocking, explicit and deeply erotic, punctuated with bursts of frenetic music and line animations, Theo and the Metamorphosis is a unique, provocative and powerful meditation on our connection to nature, to other people, and identity.

Winner of the Grand Prix at the New Horizons Film Festival in Poland.
