script: everything started with...
22 août 2010, le départ.
Everything started in 2010 by a trip, a desire to go away all together, the whole family, to show to the children something else than France. And for Claire and I, a way to discover new places, meet new people.
Choosing California didn't come from a dream; it was pragmatism.
We were looking for an English spoken country so our children would speak better english than us and if possible where the climate was pleasant.
That's how we chose California.
A few hours later, stop at Toronto...
Tempted for a while by Los Angeles, we quickly realized that it wasn’t a city for us.
Jean-Michel Huré, composer of the score of 2 of my previous movies (Nag la Bombe and Fragile) who has been living in the Bay Area for more than 2 decades agreed with that decision and convinced us to join him in northern California. Claire, my wife, looked for a house swap and that’s how we ended up, almost randomly in Berkeley.
And a few hours later, arriving in San Francisco ...
Lino is so tired that he sleeps on the floor somewhere behind the suitcases.
