    Subject

    "Flaws and power.
    Do you know the expression "to seize the opportunity ?" I had a "Rendezvous" with one on the day I met André Téchiné and he offered me the magnificent part of Juliette. Juliette, made up of flaws and power. I was able to throw myself into her completely because André was there. He doesn't call himself an actor's director. He says : "I assist them, if they're in danger."Juliette is the kind of part which alters the course of your life when it comes along. André is the kind of man who brings you happiness..."
    (Laurence Côte)
