“Bidjocka switched sides from behind the camera to in front of the camera and let himself to be filmed as he tried to emulate, to reproduce the grace, the lightness and at the same time the grandeur of Le Boxeur. One could say to bring to live, to multiply in living the archive, which is Le Boxeur.”
