“Safy asked Juliette and I never to meet”

To transcribe as much as possible the palpable tension between their characters, director and screenwriter Safy Nebbou asked the two actors never to meet on the set. “Safy asked Juliette and me never to meet. Neither during the preparation of the film, nor on the set, nor during the scenes where we talk on the phone or in chat. I was hidden by managers who supervised me like a kind of spy on the run, witness protection style. I was sometimes hidden in a closet between two vacuum cleaners and I heard Juliette say: ‘Where is the little one? Where is it hidden?'”, declared the actor in the columns of the Women’s Journal. And to add:I have deep respect for her. She’s a great actress. This meeting was rich. She is so human, generous and attentive.”
