By Mutual Agreement

A film by Rémy Cayuela

12 minutes - France - 2014

In the darkness of their living room Guillaume and Caroline are fighting for their common goods, splitting them with a dice game. All their goods... Including their ultimate one: their"flesh and blood". That’s precisely when they realize that the birth of their son is the reason why their relationship is broken. So they decide to fix it... 

Rémy Cayuela
Remy Cayuela is a French director. "The Deafgame", his graduation short film at ESAV (french film school) has quickly shown his interest for fine comedy. While the shortfilm became successful going from one festival to another, Remy started to direct music videos for the likes of WAT, Naïve New Beaters, Wilkinson, and Duke Dumont amongst others.
He won twice the audience award at Protoclip International Music Video Festival in 2011 (for WAT "Kill Kill") and in 2012 (for Naïve New Beaters "Jersey"). His last music video for Wilkinson has been selected for the IMVF 2013 (International Music Video Festival in Paris) and won the D&B Arena award in London. His ability to find strong concepts, and to mix comedy and storytelling quickly made him move to commercials (Société Générale,, Outlet, C’vous, World of Simple, …).
Jumping from one project to another, Remy directed his second shortfilm, a 10mn comedy mixing black and absurd humor called « By mutual agreement » produced by Origine Films.
