I met with Laurent Bénégui in 1995,
through actor/director Alain Beigel who is a long time friend, and
for whom I wrote the music score of his first movie "Il y a
des journées qui mériteraient qu'on leur casse la
gueule", produced by... Laurent Bénégui. Later
on, Laurent called me back to work on his movie Mauvais
genre, and I teamed up with guitar player and composer Benjamin
Raffaelli. We carried on with J'irai
au paradis car l'enfer est ici by Xavier Durringer, and Mille
bornes by Alain Beigel, two films produced by Laurent Bénégui.
It was then quite natural that we meet again on Qui
perd gagne !
For the past ten years we have known each other, and through all
of these collaborations, we have built a genuine complicity that
allows Laurent to be accurate with his demands, and as a result,
very effective in his choices. The music on Qui
perd gagne ! is the product of this intimacy.

a few days to confront him. Normally, no one can win tow times back
to back without cheating. Angèle is forced to use a serial
player. Someone who can enter Serge Vaudier's mind. That's when
Jacques comes in...
