Guillaume Duchenne de Boulogne, a doctor and researcher, became obsessed with smiles. His electrical experiments allowed him to conclude that a truly happy smile is formed not only by the use of the muscles of the mouth but also by those of the eyes. That kind of smile is called a Duchenne smile.
Many researchers have suggested that the Duchenne smile indicates spontaneous and genuine emotion since most people cannot contract the orbicular muscle at will.
"Duchenne's Smile" is a psychological horror thriller that addresses the traumas of those who, in the abandonment of their own mind, can only glimpse at their dark past.
