Biography

JEAN-PIERRE JEUNET AND FILMS
For me, cinema isn't a complicated thing.
I like:
Theatres with a DOWNWARD slope towards the screen Turning around during the film and looking at the audience's faces Watching films on aeroplanes without the sound.
Sitting at the exact point in a theatre where the distance from the screen is equal to the exact width of the screen.
To spot the ONLY extra in a crowd scene, who is looking at the camera, doesn't give a shit and is dying of laughter.
The idea of having all the people you've known intimately, gathered in a dark theatre about to watch a film you've made.
I don't like:
Theatres with an UPWARD slope towards the screen
To see an actor and not remember what film I saw him in When in old American films, the driver talks to the passenger without keeping an eye on the road
To keep from falling asleep in the middle of a film, and nervously jolting myself
The bits of chocolate that come off an ice-cream cone and force you to bite into them
Americans that leave the theatre during YOUR favourite scene, in YOUR favourite film, to buy popcorn! FILMOGRAPHY :
