Mirage' Coming To Amazon Prime July 16 | Pre-Order Now
By: The Movie Agency
MIRAGE is the story of Charlie, a desperate photographer without any money, work and home, who is suffering from a serious eye disease that causes hallucinations. He's slowly losing his sight and has a urgent need for money to get surgery. In exchange for paying for the surgical operation, his friend Tony, ruined by an unsuccessful attempt to cure his wife's orphan disease, tries to convince Charlie to euthanize her, anxious as he is to recover her life insurance. Without any hope, Charlie ends up agreeing to kill her by simulating a burglary that goes wrong. He quickly finds himself confronting the borders of reality.
It's a film noir which is a very classic genre but it flirts with surrealism.
Mirage looks like nothing else as it is set in an original modern urbanized world. It has its own aesthetic universe, not Paris nor New York nor anywhere else. This is is not common in a thriller. Normally this is reserved for sci-fi/fantastic movies. I wanted the plot to be set in an anonymous metropolis to decontextualize the story. I had in mind pictures, and urban atmospheres from East Europe where I've been quite a few times in recent years. I had already developed a constructivist atmosphere in SOMBRERO which is inspired by ALPHAVILLE. I have travelled a lot for the last 20 years and I was amazed to see the similarities in different main cities in Europe or Japan, Chile and the US. Which is normal because architects make buildings worldwide and thus the particularities of architecture due to the socio-cultural context vanishes. So, I extended the universe of SOMBRERO.
