Budding talent

France is a showcase for young talents working in film. They take risks, they reinvent, sometimes they fall flat, but it doesn’t matter; they often do better next time. They may be young actors or up-and-coming directors, but their energy and enthusiasm are rock solid. They help us see the crucial importance of mutual aid and transmission from one generation to the next. They have faith in life and believe in the power of cinemaand that only makes us want to roll out the red carpet for them. I love first films, like a first kiss, and all the first times.
