Inverted Don Juan
This film was shot as a musical, so Serge Buzon intended this film to be “a reflection of the classics of French literature.” “For this love story, I found it easier to take a starting point that everyone knew, and so I suggested to screenwriter Axelle Robert, to work with Don Juan. At the time, Axelle was very invested in what was happening around #Metoo and we agreed on the idea of Inverted Don. Joanne,” the director explained.
And Serge Bozon added: “Instead of conquering all, he is abandoned (…) Instead of Don Juan who seduces all women, he is obsessed with one woman whom he sees multiplying everywhere. And he does not stop throwing the women who approach him thinking that he recognizes her In this way. Normally, Don Juan is victorious, cynical, and manipulative; there, he is a loser, loyal and impotent.” Guests in the group Daily Yesterday, Monday 2 May, Virginie Evira and Tahir Rahim came to promote this movie but not only!
