Jeanne and the Perfect Guy

Jeanne and the Perfect Guy

A Feature film by Olivier Ducastel, Jacques Martineau

Produced by Les Films du Requin

Release in France : 22/04/1998


    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. When Olivier learns he has little time to live, he vanishes, leaving a troubled Jeanne alone, desperately searching for some sign of him. After a while, Jeanne learns that Olivier has died. But she resolves that life must go on.

    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)
