LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED
I wanted to make a film about vulnerable people; about the things in life we'd rather suppress
but, if depicted with humor, might lift our spirits. In Ida and Philip we found main characters
whose vulnerability carried both the weight of the subject matter and the lightness of a humorous
touch. We transported them to the most romantic place imaginable, alongside a host of comedic
characters. We used humor and romance as means, not of softening their hardship, but of
demarcating it more clearly, to allow the contrasting universes to emphasize each other. That
way we could portray each of our characters, in all their fortune and misfortune, with the
precision and tenderness they deserve.
