Peter Mackie Burns and Valentina Brazzini, respectively director and producer of Daphne, talk at our mikes about the genesis of this film. A sincere and moving (and funny too) portrait of a single girl in London. A normal life story for an outstanding film.
Daphne is thirty-one years old and leads a frenetic life, juggling her job at a restaurant in a fashionable part of London, her social life, and the men who fall hopelessly in love with her, despite all the signals she sends them. The cynical detachment she has developed toward life seems to be all-purpose, but happiness is another matter. This stalemate is unblocked when someone tries to kill a store manager: the girl witnesses the event and that forces her to fight the inevitability of a change which has become imperative.
