    Subject

    "The Bidochons are misfits. They undergo the trials and torments of everyday life without undrstanding the rules so they alway react the wrong way. They are not idiots. They are just clumsy. Everything that comes from outside seems to be an attack, which is why they stay together even though their home life is a mess. What they know best is each other. Each one sees his image reflected in the other and this image of themselves reassures them. When we wrote the screeplay, Serge Korber and I set out to portray a couple who are victims, and that is how Anémone and Stévenin play them." (Christian Binet)
