Short statement from the director 

 

I wrote WE AND THE OTHERS (Clément, Alex et tous les autres) 12 years ago for a stage play. The play has stayed 5 weeks in a small theatre and had a certain success. It's a sentimental comedy about love and loneliness. People really loved it. Today, I think I really need to make it to a film. In this world full of fear and war, doutes and hate, it's time to show something different, something about our lives and our sensibilities.

 

WE AND THE OTHERS is a way for me to try something different in filmmaking. After my debut feature film experience in Taiwan, I eager to do something different, something new. A sentimental comedy is a best way to make me to work with the actors closer than never. We will work as a group, to explore our potentiel in all aspects. At the end, I really hope this experience can achieve something fresh, something different, and something great.

 

We really need your help so please give us a hand and I know that I won't let you down. If you want to do something good, it's today, it's this film ! Thank you very much !
