Box 1 Enfant de personne

A little comment on L'Enfant de Personne
 
My third movie with Michaël Perrotta.
 
It was a long and difficult way, full of doubt too, because I had to change directors three weeks before shooting. We didn’t have enough money to finish the film when we started and the script was not totally written and approved by Channel 2...
But I decided to start shooting anyway and to find solutions as we went along.
This is the reason why we were all very very nervous and exhausted when we started!
 
Looking back today, I think all these difficulties made the beauty of the film.
 
This character was created by Laurence Kilberg, a dear friend of mine, who put a lot of her generosity and intelligence in it. A magnificent part, a magnificent movie.
 
Laurence has left us in the meantime. However I don’t talk about her in the past tense in the bonus material as it was made before her death. In first instance this annoyed me a lot, but then I realized it is better that way as an author never dies.
 
She will always be here next to me, to us.
