    Jeanne, a beautiful young woman with a profusion of boyfriends, always seems to be in a hurry. One day, she meets Olivier, HIV positive, who turns out to be the true love she’s been searching for.

    About

    To me, Jeanne personifies movement and desire. She’s a very alive person. She has freedom, but it’s not faked or calculated. She’s lively and alert but not very cultivated. She’s not a thinker. She has a humdrum job but doesn’t grumble about it. It’s quite unusual to see women like that in the movies — not brainy-intellectual but not wishy-washy either. That’s what made it an interesting role. I’m very different from Jeanne. I have a bigger guilt complex, for instance, but she’s like me in the way that she has no hangups. It’s a real pleasure to be asked to act a character who has no hangups! (Virginie Ledoyen)
