Le Train Bleu

Paris - Gare de Lyon. Helie behaves as a true bounder, Selena, evermore in love, yet still wants to pick up the pieces. At the bar of Le Train Bleu, where they stop to have a last drink, neither one cannot imagine what will happen.

Film notes

This first film was really a great adventure. When I wrote this story, I have never be feeling as free as before in my life. It was 100% pleasure each seconds. When Daniel Duval, a great french actor and filmaker who I admired for a long time, accepted to play one of the character, it gave me a great confidence as a beginner. When I receive the authorization of shooting in restaurant Le Train Bleu, a mythical place in Paris, it was quite unbelievable... what I have be dreaming of during writing, had become real ! Also, shooting in one of the biggest railway station of the city was a real great challenge.
It has been a huge work as I am also the producer of this film. In a little bit more than one year I have been learning a lot and, above all, I feel very grateful about the luck I receive through this step by step adventure.
Right now, I am very happy to submit this story and my work to the appreciation of the professionnals and the public. I hope that most of the persons will feel the same pleasure screening this film as I have been feeling myself making it.
