Jean Christophe Bouvet Preferences between Art films and Commercial films
In one of the interviews, Jean stated ‘We get paid to appear in commercials. Gérard Krawczyk is a superb director who has created excellent art films such as ‘L’été en pente douce.’ For a commercial film, ‘Taxi’ was professionally produced. I believe that making an excellent commercial picture is preferable to making a terrible art film.
Being both an intellectual and an artist is possible; yet, being intelligent in London is blamed upon, whilst being an artist in Paris is looked upon. Bouvet welcomes academics as well as artists. Jean had a strange dream where he met Godard (or God/Art). In a previous nightmare, he saw himself saying “Hello Sir,” to which Godard answered, “That’s all you have to say to me.”
