Besides, grimer wasn’t very nice to me. When I think about it, I think it helped me to confront myself, to create tension with Jean-Luc. He’s very intense, restless, it helped to get me the right level of stress,» said Garrel.

According to him, he does not require all the affection he provokes, constantly pushes the boundaries, argue with people, and why it is so interesting.

«This is primarily a Comedy, full of irony story. Sometimes we with Michel argued, discussed, it seemed to me that some of the scenes go too far, and he said I should do it. Therefore, we are constantly looking for balance. We were from different «teams», and because of this it was so fun to work together,» said the actor.
