Fix You tells the story of two childhood friends who awaken dormant feelings after one falls in a deep slumber caused by a shocking “heartbreak.”
The idea for Fix You came as filmmaker Christian Juru was exploring visual concepts of having mechanical body parts. The story materialized when he got to the heart. He drew from classic fairy tales as he developed the story. The value of a long and strong friendship became the center around which various themes would stem. The role reversal theme presents the girl as “princess charming” and the boy as the “sleeping prince." The film also paints a picture of normality to a world of fantasy and implicitly expresses social ideals.
