About Safe

by Marilou Duponchel

In Safe, the opening sequence is the only one where we see young people together, outdoors. There’s not a single living soul in the rest of the film, as if the apocalypse had come very close. Each frame, whether it be inside a police station, a car, a parking lot or a casino, is shut off by thick walls and windows. In this ghostly America, a man tries to protect his son and fix the mistakes he made as a father. Safe is a half-lit, crystallin film that tells us the story of crumbling paradigms, of their failures, but also that there might be light at the end of the tunnel, a possible rebirth.
