Review

The suburbs of Paris are overflowing with natural vacation spots in summer. During this time for relaxation, you can find people looking for an outlet of their feelings. Treasure Island follows the adventures of boys who want to sneak inside the prohibited beach to enjoy the summer. Guillaume Brac opens the story with the phrase “I don’t know anything about treasure” quoting Robert Louis Stevenson, the writer of Treasure Island and describes the world through the eyes of children. Treasure Island is a documentary film, but the leisure time of Paris residents including the immigrants can be extended beyond a simple record. The three boys climb up a majestic hill, the night guard from Guinea protects the confused world, and an Afghanistan immigrant family talks about migration. The fixed camera and the scene described in the wide frame subtly and sentimentally guides us into a small corner of the lost paradise. Brac proves his delicate talent which is never simple, through dull excitement, fear, childlike revolt and extraordinary expression on melancholy. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
Guillaume BRAC
Guillaume Brac is a major director of French cinema’s new generation. His debut feature film A World Without Women (2011) deals with a man shaken up by two women. This emotional drama is continued in his film Tonnerre (2013) where he portrays a rapidly changing relationship as a musician and a woman meet. July Tales (2017), screened at the 19th Jeonju IFF, is an omnibus film about two friends’ visit to the beach and a Norwegian traveler’s last day in Paris. His recent documentary Treasure Island depicts the suburban Paris beach as a microcosm of the world. Brac crosses the boundaries of narrative and documentary film without setting a clear difference between the two and enjoys mixing elements from both sides. He is often mentioned as the descendant of Eric Rohmer due to his balanced projection of melancholy, irony, and ego in his portrayal of trivial daily lives.
