A documentary about Jean-Paul Belmondo’s career will be screened, on the occasion of the tribute paid to him by the Festival de Cannes. Belmondo, itinéraire… was co-directed by Vincent Perrot and Jeff Domenech, and was initially a pure coincidence.


Jeff Domenech, a fast-food restaurant manager, made an encounter which was to change his life. He met the film-maker, Georges Lautner when with three friends who were hunting for autographs during a festival in Monte-Carlo. The two men got to know each other and one day, Lautner invited Domenech to lunch. That was the day Domenech met his idol, Jean-Paul Belmondo, who has since become a friend. Domenech managed to convince Belmondo to agree to his project of making a documentary about his career. As Domenech was so sincere, Belmondo agreed to this for the first time in his life. This was how Belmondo, itinéraire…, co-directed with Vincent Perrot, a host on the French radio RTL and author of several documentaries and works on cinema, came into being. The scenario begins with the actor going to the film screening. He sees the whole of his career flash before his very eyes, with extracts of his films combined with testimonials from actors from both his generation and the current one, all narrated by Jean Dujardin.
