Le Faune is a fantasy-world on film, based on the ballet L’après-midi d’un Faune by Vaslav Nijinsky. In this ballet, that was produced in 1912, Nijinsky took a new direction and broke with the usual, flowy dance-code in ballet. His original style, rectangular and with slightly sexually tinted movements caused a commotion amongst the audience and press. In his film Le Faune, just like Nijinsky, Joseph Simon incorporates foreign influences to the code of ballet to come to new kinds of expression. With this he creates an enchanting dance-film about voyeurism, intimacy and sexuality.
