An art film, both "weird" and experimental, it gathers elements of filmmaking which recall German expressionism and surrealism. "Play" retraces ancient fears and visceral obsessions in a black and white nightmare whose post-production work lasted for years.
As Zuliani stated in an interview: "This film is light years from the contemporary American cinema that we have been feeding on for years, but by digging deep into my perceptions, I gave life to a parallel universe, a space-time dimension that destroys the illusion of reality...".
