This melancholic story tells how a girl refuses to forget her imaginary friend, whom she met as a child. In the role of the narrator-a Frenchwoman Julie de Waroquier (Julie de Waroquier), creating mesmerizing beauty photos, full of mysticism, romance and tenderness.
An imaginary childhood friend is a healthy development of the imagination, but in adult life, this phenomenon can be a sign of something more serious, such as incredible loneliness or a broken heart.
This illusion can also lead to the expression of contradictory facets of oneself.
That is why de Varoquier chose the same girl as the main character and in the role of her" non-existent " double.
According to her, the most important thing is that her model reveals the shadows of naive tenderness, as well as moments of instability and anxiety, so that she rushes between something naive and something more dangerous.
De Varoquier shoots on Polaroid, soberly and coolly revealing the reality of his heroine's daily life.
But the project "Double" is not a condemnation of fantasies and fictions, but rather an excursion into the dark corners and secret desires hidden in each of us.
Perhaps, as we grow up, our imaginary friends do not go anywhere, but remain inside, waiting for the moment when they can go outside.
