gets a new look !
For Alain and his wife Tina, turning thirty is a major event which triggers a whole host of questions: Where am I going in life? Must I give up on my hopes and dreams? What should I let go of, and what should I keep, to make a success of my new adult life? It's all a bit like moving house, which funny as it may seem, is exactly what Alain and Tina are doing.
We had spent two months in this building zoned for demolition. On the ground floor : the set workshops and the canteen, on the first : the equipment, on the second: the sets and the apartment, on the fourth: the production office.
We did the entire pre-production in this building, having become its temporary tenants of sorts. Yet my fondest memory is of the dinner we had with the actors on the eve of the first day's shooting, in the apartment which was to serve as the main set. Little by little a magic took hold, and the apartment became ours for a veritable housewarming party. For a few hours we felt really at home, happily partying with friends. It must have been the swiftest housewarmer followed by a moving out in real-estate history. I hope, and I feel that this magic has made its mark on the film. It's an idea which pleases me.
