“This film (filmic object), The Three Graces, goes back to the age-old motif of The Three Graces, the Judgment of Paris who had to choose between three possibilities: power, war, and love. The Graces always look very similar, making up a group (a nucleus), often dancing and notably sharing a certain harmony. it’s basically the same woman; it’s a trinity. i’ve been working with the idea of disjunction for a long time. Today, everything has turned into individual vectors, no one is interested in what is common. in this film, i’m putting together three girls (two twins and their sister) standing separately from each other, acting independently. Their physical “resemblance” (their harmony) is the only thing they have in common with the ancient motif. We are not dealing here with the return to the original, but with actualization and incarnation as the essential tasks of Art”. – Jean-Luc Moulène

During the course of the shot the central figure was positioned so as she fell into shade/isolation.
