Paolo is precise, methodical, and punctual. Everything in his house and in his life is meticulously planned out and scrupulously ordered. The other Paolo is messy, inexact, and muddled. He makes life up as he goes along, day by day. The unexpected is his specialty. When the two Paolos meet, it’s like the mirror game: one is the exact copy of the other, but topsy-turvy. A candid story about meeting The Other, about diversity and the extraordinary usefulness of a reciprocal exchange. But also an invitation to find The Other that lies deep within each of us. Prize: Prix International Espace Enfantes 2007
