Press Release


Tagline: Two photographers in Paris question each other’s style: What drives art? Passion or reason?



The Decisive Moment follows the life of two young photographers in Paris, Henry, and Camille. They have very different approaches to their work. Is the creative process a commitment to analytical reason or a passionated inspiration?

They are so different and yet so similar.

The film is a homage to the photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, who was able to combine analytical reason and passionate inspiration in his perfectly composed photographs. He did this in the spare of a moment, a Decisive Moment.
