Being able to draw a picture about film noir is particularly appealing to Raul Miclea. He wants it to be dark and mysterious. In this scene he is showing a dissimilar couple on the run. Although set in the centre of the city, the other people couldn’t be farther away.
“A film noir plays with perception. That’s why I decided not to add any perspective to the picture. The depth results solely from the staggered arrangement of the various levels, much like in old montages.”
