"It totally amazes me. And delights me also, as you can imagine. This scenario, I wrote in five months. He says things to me are very personal. What amazes me is the fact that a subject as intimate, which is mine, is understood by many people in so little time. The people I meet in the street often tell me they are immediately identified to a particular character. And tell me that’s what they want to feel at this moment in cinema. Finally, the film’s message, I realize after the fact is that it feels good to no longer hide things. It feels good to tell the truth as to oneself to others!"
—Guillaume Canet on the success of Les petits mouchoirs
