Acting I found was very strange because I would wake up and it would not be an escape into the world of music and the world of dreams. It would be more logic and more confrontation with human beings and more conversation. And this is not my strong side. It is definitely my weak side.

I have already forgotten the one thousand or eleven hundred something days (in the development of the film, including four months of shooting).

Today I forget all of them. It’s good, no ? It’s a very good magic potion you have here in Cannes. I am very happy. It seems that my journey is complete. There is a big, big pink French ribbon on this year, thank you very much.
