Adèle Exarchopoulos – Don’t give a damn: “We left for a Kechiche adventure”

The actress from La vie d’Adèle dons the uniform of an air hostess in trouble in this first film and personifies the doubts and crisis of an entire generation that grew up with her.

Noticed at the last Cannes Film Festival, where it was presented at La Semaine de la Critique, I don’t give a fuck was released this Wednesday at the cinema. In this feature film by Emmanuel Marre and Julie Lecoustre, Adèle Exarchopoulos embodies a low-cost airline flight attendant in existential crisis. The opportunity to meet the actress recently nominated for the César for mandibles for a commented filmography (to be found in the new issue of Première, currently on newsstands and on sale on our online store), of which here is an excerpt where she tells us about her experience on I don’t give a fuck :

Fuck It: An Exciting Generational Film [critique]

I didn’t measure all this generational aspect at the start… because there wasn’t really a scenario. When I was younger, I would have said yes directly because I liked the way Julie and Emmanuel talked about their film. But there, I needed to read something to agree to leave for four months away from my son. The discovery of this scenario sounded obvious. The filmmakers’ thirst for authenticity too. We left for an adventure à la Kechiche, sometimes filmed on the iPhone, for lack of authorization. I felt like I was in the middle of a documentary. And it was while discovering the film that I perceived the extent to which it offers an autopsy of our society in which we consume everything much too quickly and of a generation which, in the midst of this chaos, is thirsty for life. Fuck it is not pessimistic because its heroine has faith. This faith is also the one I have in my job. Today, I assume the fact of needing it, that I would be sad if it ended.
