To be this flower growing in a river of tarmac, the inspiration for a dream, the little slice of heaven that Sacha (Bourdo) is chasing after throughout the film... It feels glorious to be glorified like this, although the conditions on the set soon brought us down to earth: the noise and air pollution and filthy water in the shower every night... The tollbooth operators close their windows after every truck, to get a little respite from the noxious exhaust fumes. And they still keep smiling!
