Director: Patrice Leconte
The ordeal of an orchestra drummer on having to play Maurice Ravel’s Bolero again.
An opportunity to see Patrice Leconte (RIDICULE, THE HAIRDRESSER’S HUSBAND, THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE, L’HOMME DU TRAIN) return to the short form after years of successfully making features.
'This idea is very, very simple, it’s nothing, it’s crazy. I had this idea in my head for a long time. One day I met Gilles Jacob in Cannes and he asked me: you never want to shoot short films between feature films? Uh no, no…ah, except one idea…and I told him the idea of the Batteur du Bolero.'
