For Jean-Michel Folon, this film is the most beautiful that Dewaere has done, because it is loaded with lived emotions. He reveals that in the evening, after the shooting, the very small Angela must sometimes leave with one or the other of her parents, which is heartbreaking for the whole team. The personal drama that Patrick Dewaere then saw finds its climax in one of the essential scenes of the film, when Dewaere appears on a theater stage, interrupts the play where Miou-Miou is playing in front of the audience and leads him backstage, to settle his accounts. Jean-Michel Folon specifies that a few moments before shooting this long shot, Dewaere declares to the director that he is able to do only one take, given the dramatic intensity of the sequence. The actor declares to Dugowson: “I will give everything … Make sure there is no one in my path.” During the scene, he screams and rushes several times, his head forward against a partition, without being overtaken by a stuntman. Jean-Michel Folon reveals that during this period the actor told him that he found himself alone at Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral in the middle of the night to pray. The documentary ends with a phrase from Jean-Michel Folon, his friend: “Patrick was a flame. A flame is fragile and it can be extinguished at the slightest draft. And there was a draft … And Patrick died ”.
