At last week’s Hollywood preem for “Love Me If You Dare” director Yann Samuell said “with the same script, the same cast I couldn’t find a single dollar to make the film in France today.”

The tyro helmer added, “We’re running out of real independent movies in France. Either we have big commercial projects or very small films, but nothing inbetween.”
