Synopsis

A business executive meets an actress who's the friend of a barmaid who meets a bodyguard who works with a chauffeur who drives an interior decorator who's the wife of the business executive who would like to be friends with the artists who… There's no accounting for people's tastes. That's why some people should never mix. Because you can't rub up against social and cultural barriers without causing trouble.

Subject

As soon as I started writing “It Takes All Kinds,” I knew that I was going to direct it, but I tried not to think about it too much because it made me nervous. Jean-Pierre and I started out wanting to write a thriller, but we had trouble working it into the chosen theme, which was about money and honor. I remember that at that point, the only images that came to mind were of American movies. I couldn’t conjure up my own visual imagery. When we began writing, certain images surfaced, certain passages of music that appealed to me, but then I stopped thinking about it. I told myself, first things first! Focus on the writing! When the film finally went into pre-production, although I was scared that I had no technique, I still felt safe knowing that I knew how to direct actors.
