“Bruco is a totally independent film. Everyone worked for free, for a meal and a glass of wine. The original script was about twenty-five pages which I gradually reworked. Nothing is improvised. A writer wants to become a butterfly. A man wants to change his life. He is at the peak of his career, then something breaks. He meets the Minotaur. Roland Barthes wrote somewhere that if you were to analyze all works of art they would contain one hidden meaning: ‘I love you.’ Of course, this film is also about difference.” – Antonio D’Alfonso

Bruco est un film totalement indépendant. Tous mes partenaires ont travaillé gratuitement, pour un repas et un verre de vin. Le scénario original avait environ vingt-cinq pages, que j’ai retravaillées progressivement. Rien n’est improvisé. Un écrivain veut devenir papillon. Un homme cherche à changer sa vie. Il est au sommet de sa carrière et soudain quelque chose se brise. Il rencontre le Minotaure. Roland Barthes a écrit que si on analysait toutes les oeuvres d’art, elles contiendraient une seule signification cachée : «je t’aime». Bien sûr, ce film traite aussi de la différence. – Antonio D’Alfonso
