French director Yohan Ungar‘s new film must be described as something between a fashion film and a turbulent fairy tale. HIGH HEELS TOMATOES is a product of Yohan assembling a team of some of the people he admires the most: ” - I wanted to collaborate with friends and people, who’s work I admire, such as Antoine Marteau, director of photography for music videos (White Lies, Bob Sinclar, Mona), VFX artistic director Johnny Alves (Harry Potter, Pixels, Evian Commercial), Lydia Gasperoni, fashion editor (Dealer de luxe, Glamour) or hair stylist Matthieu Guignaudeau, (Vuitton, Kooples).”
The new rock band “All Animals” brings a kind of flippancy while the new face, Julie Henning, a swedish model living in Paris, gives a delicate touch to the film. Samuel Daynie plays the role of the prince in this story.
The synopsis of HIGH HEELS TOMATOES by Yohan Ungar:
” Nowadays, something is rotten in the kingdom of Princesses. A girl simulates a hot air balloon crash in the forest, expecting to be saved. But nobody comes. Upset, she decides to see what’s happening across the field, wearing her Jimmy Choo high heels. She becomes mad when she discovers the Prince in his underwear, eating tomato pasta with his horse, while watching a western Spaghetti. ”
Yohan is known for deeply immersing himself into the environment of each story he depicts, and he often likes to let his characters have the freedom to play within their roles.
Next up for Yohan is another short film titled “une voiture dans les nuages” (a car in the clouds) , and he’s currently writing a new script for a feature adapted from a novel called “de ciel et de sang” (blood and sky).
