"Alone" is a film whose power appears inversely proportional to the simplicity of its approach: a filmmaking team accompany a child when she goes to visit her mother in prison. This is a film shoot without “manipulation” in the sense that the director filmed things as they happened, during this dull morning, and moreover kept any setbacks in the editing. This is the precise ethical point questioned by Stonys in a reflexive form that endeavours to represent a child in a specific situation that leads him to reveal all of the conditions of this representation: to what extent can one interfere in someone’s distress? The filmmaker responds via the final sequence, summoning the invisible to treat, like a miracle-maker, the infinite solitude that he has just shared with us.
