"How would we describe Nadège Trebal's film in one word? 'Strange' is definitely the most fitting description. 'Strange' as a byword for charming and imperfect. Indeed, the appeal of 'Douze Mille' lies in its atypical and unclassifiable beauty. With determination and a surprising dose of good humour and poetry, Trebal examines two soul mates in pursuit of their own kind of happiness, who will stop at nothing to defend their freedom. Starring the director herself, alongside an intense Arieh Worthalter, the characters seem to float above a world that's intent on taming them. It's a film from another world which transports us far away from the desolation of daily life, towards a mysterious world where the intensity and immediacy of the present moment is all that counts."
