Directed by Frédéric Sojcher A film within a film, Frédéric Sojcher's Climax is a short tragicomedy about a French director trying to draw out a desired expression from the obstinate, yet seasoned actor Gérard. Jonathan is passionate about his Grandfather's story and without an authentic climactic shot, his film is ruined. Sojcher brilliantly turns filmmaking on its head as he encounters the varying forces that influence his final filmed piece. Will Jonathan achieve the pinnacle moment in his Holocaust film, despite Gérard's ulterior motives? In this light-hearted and unexpected comedy, Sojcher leaves one laughing and contemplating the hidden layers and meaning behind the surface of this and every film.
