A boulevard at night. A woman walks up and down the sidewalk while a man in a bar opposite watches her. He loves her. He's finally going to tell her. In his own, violent, way. She ends up in hospital, being looked after by an attentive nurse. He'll fall in love with her. It'd be too good to be true if the story finished there. It's only just beginning…


This story stirred my imagination when I read the script. My reveries were dark, because we don’t always have rosy dreams – nightmares are dreams, too. What I liked was the fairy-tale side to a world that was dark and cynical, if sometimes very funny. The character of Hervé is a little oafish and clumsy. He’s pretty heavy, rather than ethereal. It was fun to portray him – I wanted to give him a cuddly side by focusing on the way he moved. That doesn’t change the way you portray a character, but it provides more dramatic substance.

Although this is a simple story, it is told in a startling and original way. Jean-Louis Milesi is clearly an auteur film-maker.

Vincent Elbaz, actor.
