"The story of this film started with reading a book by Colette called, L'envers du Music-Hall (Behind the Scenes of Music Hall). Wherever she went, Colette created scandal. So for Tournée, I wanted something which would correspond to this woman’s world. I wanted to create disorder, disobedience and politics without for all that delivering a specific message".
"The moment we went into editing was like starting a real grieving process, because in its initial form it was 3 hours and 15 minutes long. We shot some extraordinary scenes which unfortunately we couldn’t keep. This was proof that filmmaking can sometimes be terribly painful."
"There’s a real revolution in Burlesque happening in the world right now, and in particular in the US where everything started spontaneously, like rock and roll and the punk movement. I love Burlesque and think it can be useful for educating women. It exists to destroy stereotypes. Moreover, Tournée is a woman’s film".
