In words of the photography director

In the early stages of production, the director of photography Vittorio Storaro said in an interview: "I would not compare it to Match Point (2005). The script does a masterful job at mixing drama and comedy, each time calibrating them in very different ways. I can say that it takes place in the present, there will be laughter, but also dark chills."
