The famous director met with the press in the morning and then with fans from Antalya at a Q&A which was organized by the festival.
Stating how well organized the International Antalya Film Festival is, Hazanavicius said, “Our screening went really well. I made people laugh. The people at the festival are very friendly, everything is well organized. I also liked the selection. I think this is a good festival. I’m glad I came. I was also lucky tour around the city and I’m fascinated by it.”
On his film Redoubtable, which is about the relationship between director Jean-Luc Godard and young actress Anne Wiazemsky, he said, “I tried to make the film funny. I love Italian comedies. I was inspired by those. Comedy films aren’t very popular at Cannes. I received some angry reactions as well as really good ones. Some people think Godard is sacred. The film didn’t get as many bad reactions as I anticipated. Louis, the lead actor of the film, is both handsome and charismatic, and he is also a very serious actor. It was more fun to have such a serious actor act in a comedy. In my film I told the story of not a hero, not a villain but a person.”
