French actor Louis Garrel said in an interview with RIA Novosti that he was ready to negative public reaction to the film «Young Godard,» in which he played the main role.

«Young stage» Oscar-winning Director Michel Hazanavichus participates in the main competition of the anniversary of the Cannes film festival along with other eighteen paintings, including «Dislike» by Andrei Zvyagintsev. The movie tells about the living legend of French and world cinema, the man who revolutionized the language of cinema, Jean-Luc Godard. Hazanavicius, in his usual manner the Director depicts with humor and irony. The picture focuses on a difficult period in the life of the mother when he marries a young actress, gives up everything he believed in, and interested in the youth revolutionary movement. The film received mixed reviews from international critics and very negative from the French.

«Yes, the French are outraged. Before shooting began, I told Michel that even if the movie will be good, we get a lot of criticism. This part of the game, because Godard biography of one American, one French, two books written by his ex-wife, and he still makes films. It’s crazy! It attracts so much attention. As, for example, if I was a Christian, and Michelle asked me to play Jesus, and we were in the Vatican. Cannes is the Vatican for the cinema,» said Garrel.

Thus, in his opinion, «the film turned out good, he is entertaining and intelligent at the same time».

«Good to hear, it may seem unpleasant, but after all he is a true hero. He left the comfort zone in order to reinvent themselves. People who don’t agree with it, blind because they just can’t make it to the end. I think if you know Godard, his work, you this movie will not insult, because you have your own special connection with him a genius. Do not be afraid that Michelle will show you, was a good Godard or not, because that’s not the point of the film. Its meaning is that he was a genius, one of the five Directors who changed the language of cinema», — said the actor.
