Gil and the filmmaker lived a love story. This movie is a way to say goodbye.
The loving gaze has many particularities. To scrutinize the object of its affection in the most awkward situations. To watch the other at his own expense. Or to be less sensitive to the gestures of the loved one, compared to the phenomenon of his mere presence. Ida Gil is a loving movie, and yet modest, because the lover is almost fading, ghost of an ended relationship : a vestige in the darkness, a familiar memory haunting the corner of a room here, leaving a persistent picture there… Gil inhabits the movie that is devoted to him, like a spectre, and veil his romanticism (beaches, whispers, feelings of absolute) with a sober touch of melancolia.
