YOU WILL REMEMBER ME is the result of my meeting with François Archambault’s exceptional text. Reading it for the first time, tears came to my eyes. I was taken in by the beauty of his language, the richness of his themes and the power of his emotion. A feeling of euphoria immediately came over me and the desire to share what I felt became unstoppable. The film project was born.

It had been since SUR LE SEUIL, almost twenty years ago, that I had not worked on a screenplay. Diving in again came with its share of worry and anguish. But I was comforted by the idea that from my first reading, a very clear vision of the film had imposed itself on me. So, I followed this path, returning regularly to everything that had so seduced me in the original text and letting it inspire me at each step of film production.

I saw a great dramatic and narrative potential in this improbable meeting between two characters, two people completely opposite from each other - Édouard and Bérénice - but which in the end prove to be each other’s salvation. I liked that, from this meeting, sprang a "whole greater than the sum of its parts", a kind of salute of enlightenment that embraces and transcends the whole story.

I liked the tone of the story, its particular blend of humour and drama. Besides, in life, isn't it often a good reflex to use a little humour to try and understand the most difficult situations?

I hope that the film carries part of this beauty and that it finds its way through to you.
