Another Man

Another Man

The third feature by Lionel Baier is an intellectual satire on the profession of film critic through the entertaining adventures of an aimless young man. Baier, who says that this film is his most personal, takes recourse to film noir, but gives his own turn to this game of desire and deception. Inspired by a book by the Swiss painter Félix Vallotton about an art critic and murderer, Baier is primarily interested in the harsh, insensitive sides of desire, which are expressed in the film in sharp contrasts between city and countryside, truth and lies, lust and love. (IFFR Rotterdam)

Lionel Baier, geboren 1975, dreht seit den Neunziger Jahren Filme und leitet seit 2002 die Filmabteilung der Kunsthochschule ECAL in Lausanne. Gemeinsam mit den befreundeten Regiekollegen Ursula Meier, die in seinen Filmen immer wieder kleinere Rollen spielt, und Jean-Stéphane Bron (Mais im Budeshuus) gilt er als Proponent einer jungen welschschweizer Filmszene. Lionel Baier lebt in Paris.
