Un ange hypnotique

“Oui, I know it’s a documentary, Mathéo, but why does the dialogue have to be so stodgy? Everything about this script c’est tout simplement horrible… and pour l’amour de Dieu – these visuals are a blur! C’est atroce!

“Joëlle, vite! Mon Dieu! Go tell that cameraman to get a take of Mr. Pradeau without those pigeons flying an inch away from his face. The man literally glows with beatitude – why can’t we capture that?

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t care… mais c’est pour le Festival de Cannes! C’est notre grande chance, imbéciles! Il faut faire de Pierre Pradeau un ange hypnotique!”
