Citations de la réalisatrice [en anglais]

« The first few days of the film were storyboarded and shot-listed, but after that, I threw it out the window. Our locations kept falling through, and I had to come up with something else on the spot. It's interesting for me when I look at the film now. Aesthetically, the structure of the movie is initially very montage-based, the camera is very static. As the film progresses, the camera work becomes looser. »
-- Lynne Stopkewich (source)

« One reason I got so excited about the material was that this characer seemed like a life-filled, intelligent girl-next-door, but she is also obsessed with death and the dark side. I liked that contrast. »

Citation sur Kissed

« Les scènes 'd'amour' nécrophile échappent [...] à l'obscénité grâce à de multiples stratégies de distanciation : des éclairages bleutés, le recours à des objectifs donnant une image 'soft', des surimpressions, des fondus et de la musique, tantôt new age, tantôt chansons pop, ou encore des jeux d'interaction entre la protagoniste et le public, tout comme entre les membres du public eux-mêmes. »

Citations sur Kissed [en anglais]

« [Lynne] Stopkewich felt that Gowdy's 'We So Seldom Look on Love' was an ideal story to be realized on a low budget because of two main characters and a minimum of locations. Told in flashback, a 1970s look was required and achievable in a small town or suburb with frequent interiors. Sourcing thrift shops and garage sales, the 1970s look was cheaper to realize than a contemporary look. »

« Sandra's vision is emphasized in ways that place viewers in radically new territory with respect to the capacity for a female gaze at the male body. »
-- Lee Parpart (source)
