Benjamin Ballon is a young French director who hasn't yet shot his first film. Can you really call yourself a director when you haven't made a film? Of course, once you realize that your whole life is a movie...
"Tortilla" is a love story. A story full of love, not about love. That's what gives "Tortilla" its particularly dynamic power. Love in "Tortilla" isn't a feeling but an energizing force. It's the film's true luxury. Benjamin realizes this in the end. He realizes that love forgives and redeems. It's the thing that allows you to take control of your life. That's quite something for a director." (Martin Provost)
