Writer/Director : Celine Sciamma
"I think what happens in childhood is very striking and leaves strong impressions. You still remember the scents, the flavors, the emotions you had at that time. Nothing passes, everything remains, the shames and the pleasures. But the movie stays open on whether this is a phase or the beginning of a radical journey toward identity for the character. It was a choice from the start to make the movie very open on the problematic, so that everyone can relate. It’s a way to be political to make the film welcoming for a wide audience. I made it with several layers, so that a transsexual person can say “that was my childhood” and so that an heterosexual woman can also say it. The movie creates bond. That’s something I’m proud of." - Celine Sciamma on "Tomboy"
