"So no, she didn't particularly like my films, but this one, yes. And it's even more touching today because she's still here, but she won't be able to go to the movies anymore. That was the last time she went to the movies. She saw Aline and it was nice of her to have given me her positive feeling, "concluded Valérie Lemercier, visibly moved by evoking her mother.
