    Subject

    Unifrance : "Why did you turn to directing after the succes of "Wild Reeds" ?"
    Gaël Morel : ""Wild Reeds" was an accident. I never really meant to be an actor. I've always wanted to direct movies. In fact I had already made a short film., "La Vie à rebours"."

    Unifrance : "You have been criticized for your portrayal of life in the low-rent suburbs..."
    Gaël Morel : "People don't realize that the suburbs of French provincial cities are nothing like the way they're portrayed in the movies these days. The actors I chose helped me to steer clear of the "suburb movie" caricature because that's not what the film is about. It's about a young guy who wants to be a writer and his relationships with others people his age."

    Unifrance : "How did you finance your movie ?"
    Gaël Morel : "My producer had mine typed up for me after he read the handwritten script ! But then I had already directed a short film with Magouric Productions, and Laurent Bénégui helped me to raise the money. I had the "advance on box office" grant as well."

    Unifrance : "Are you satisfied with the result ?"
    Gaël Morel : "I'm mostly satisfied with some of the scenes which were inspired by personal details. What I like about the movie are its accent on sincerity and its rejection of conventional wisdom."
