    "The best memory I have of the film is a scene where François Perier and Christophe Hémon were sitting face to face having dinner. Christophe's hand was bandaged after an "injury at work" which meant we were in for a holiday. François was eyeing Christophe with deep scepticism. It was suppposed to be a silent scene but the crew and I could hardly stop ourselves laughing. Then Christophe came out with a wonderful : "Nice mashed potato, Dad." I laughed so much, I could barely yell "cut !". The scene stayed in the film."
