Film notes

Conor on ‘Un Peu Plus’: “The idea came from a photo I took in Paris, of a woman crossing a bridge eating a pastry. She was covered with crumbs, but didn’t seem to care. Then I saw that she was wearing a wig, and a story started to unfold. I felt it was a universal theme – that of “last wishes” - but for this particular version of the story it had to take place in Paris – where cakes are appreciated in a special way - or not at all. Thankfully, the Irish Film Board agreed. I am very grateful for that.”
