Emmanuel Mouret interview by Julie Gayet
Here comes Emmanuel Mouret’s new movie – in which he plays once again – and which tells the story of the story of a story…
The main story is the funny one of a boy who just cannot wait to make love and asks his best girlfriend to do him a favour… Well, in other words, to sacrifice herself! Once the “favour” done, the two friends come to realize it was… out of this world! So they dive at the deep end again, trying hard to be useless this time round … but even rough sex on the hard floor, without going through the lovey-dovey bits, is even better…! Thanks to these staggered scenes, one gets taken in by the languid rhythm of the movie, its rather funny dialogues, good situation comedy surprises… even if the omnipresent classical music sometimes makes you feel you’re in a dentist’s waiting room.
It’s a François Truffaut’s atmosphere with Antoine Doinel waving his arms around constantly! Worth to remember: a very beautiful sentence at the end of the movie: “Before one gets a kiss, one never knows whether it’ll be a big or a small one…”
