A group of students from the French Gobelins School of Image have made this sweet and psychologically relevant film about timidity.

A young woman is being followed by a crocodile who represents her shyness. As he makes her life a living hell, she tries by every means to get rid of him.

The film shines with cleverness,  and it is a well-orchestrated game of light and shadows, with an all-plastic crocodile. The playful jazzy music of Laurent Courbier makes In-Between as light as a feather.

 In-Between was made by Alice BISSONNET, Aloyse DESOUBRIES BINET, Sandrine HAN JIN KUANG, Juliette LAURENT, and Sophie MARKATATOS at GOBELINS, l'école de l'image.
