The story as seen by Régis Roinsard

Camille and Georges spend their time dancing to their favorite tune “Mr. Bojangles”. At home there is room only for pleasure, fun, fantasy and friends. Until Camille, the mother, pushes the limits compelling Georges and his son Gary to do everything they can to avoid the inevitable.


Director’s notes - Excerpt

“My friends were pressuring me to read Olivier’s book. “It is made for you, you have to adapt it to the screen”. And as always when people talk to me too much about a best seller, I step back. As soon as “Waiting for Bojangles” was published it won four prizes. The press loved it, the sales were exploding, many producers were interested in adapting it to the screen. Eventually I decided to read the book.
And then, I realized that there was a movie to be made. Was it for me? My wife who decided to read the book helped me make the decision and said “ If you don’t make this movie, I will leave you.”
