“Drop it!”

Taillandier (Patrick Chesnais)

Marylou (Jeanne Lambert) wants to go out with young people from Oleron. Taillandier (Patrick Chesnais) lets her go to a party. Not seeing her return, he decides to look for her at the discotheque Le Moulin in Saint-Georges-d’Oléron. Not finding her in the nightclub, he is explained by the bouncer that young people often go to the port of Douhet. Taillandier goes there, discovering that Marylou is being abused by a gang of individuals. He decides to help her.

Jean Becker likes to leave the interpretation of his texts to the actors: “If they are too opposed to the vision I have, and what they propose is not good, I tell them, but most of the time, this listening and exchange brings to the film”. On the other hand, he hates improvisation.


The novel Welcome aboard, being adapted by Jean Becker, was published in 1998. It will be 14 years before we see its adaptation on the big screen.
