Christophe Honoré

He arrived in Paris in the 1990s, where he began working in cinema. After debuting with the short film Nous deux (2001), his feature films show him as a very personal creator, with a taste marked by a certain pop romanticism, and with an extraordinary ability to integrate his idols into his particular and very recognizable imaginary. D’A dedicated a retrospective to him in 2019.
