»Du Poil sous les roses (Fur under the roses) depicts over the course of a film the emergence of the pubertaire in a boy and a girl, from the initial vacillation of identity and desire, through the lability of psychical defences that they can then establish, until the resolution of their feeling of strangeness. Their path leads them toward each other at the end of the journey of sexual difference, that is of the affiliation with a sex, but also of the recognition of the desire of the Other, outside of the family environment. In this transition, the language of childhood is infiltrated by that of the adult; confusion gives way to an imperious work of translation. The gaze must arm itself with screens (camera, microscope) to filter desire in the world, the other and oneself.»
