Synopsis
“What do Sophie Marceau, Sandrine Bonnaire and Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Amalric, Yvan Attal, Mathieu Kassovitz have in common?”
If this documentary evokes a strong response by the vision of great actors at the beginning of their career, it refutes the nostalgia and turns resolutely towards the future; towards these emerging luminaries who will one day make history in the cinema. Although the César of the Best New Actor or Actress does not decide with certainty those who make cinematic history, it nevertheless offers a delicious image that I way dying to discover.

FOCUS ON Patrick Fabre – director
Since 2001, Fabre often appears on TV as a journalist (Canal +, Starmag on TPStar, FilmoTv) or editor-in-chief (DVD mag on TPStar, Jour de fête sur France 2). In 2007, he directed a 52-minute documentary, Cédric Klapisch ce qui le meut; it was released the next year on France 5. In 2010, he directed his first short: La Moustache de Charles Bronson. Then he made a second short in 2012, Rue des Roses, by Mon Voisin Production; the scenario was bought by France 2 and it was selected for about 20 festivals worldwide. The same year, he made a documentary about the “behind the scenes” of the anime Ice Age and in 2014 he did the same thing for the movie Les Garçons et Guillaume à table.

Patrick Fabre was a Special Guest at FFC 2017.
