"The film was born out of a very strong interest in the world of dreams, in the mysterious connections created when the brain is in that state of unconsciousness often associated with death." (ALEXANDRU CAPATOIU)

 

"For ALEXANDRU CAPATOIU, the world of dreams presents a sequence of powerful images, sensations, emotions and stories strongly related to death. In this macabre world the details and the symbols of death are emphasized. There are seven stories told in seven different languages. Hence this precise number is not accidental. The symbolism of the number seven represents the live relationship between the human and the divine, a change after an accomplished cycle, but it is also the number of the punishment, the purification and the penitence." (Andrei Luca, BIEFF 2012)
