Note of intent from director and producer David Serero:

The story of Christophe Rocancourt is that of an extraordinary destiny. A unique life equation that is impossible to achieve today. Christophe's story is the most excellent film ever made. I am part of the generation who grew up with his book, which became a cult. It’s a French story with an American rhythm. It affects everyone because we all find ourselves there. An urban legend that is part of our heritage. I wanted the film to question the psychology of the character Rocancourt and for him to be able to express himself fully. The film begins with a quote from Christophe: “Don’t judge me; the courts have already taken care of it.” It was essential to discover his story from his point of view with the perspective that maturity has brought him. I learned a lot while making this film; it is more relevant than ever.
