If you want to learn how Renoir’s ‘Rules of the Game’ inspired Estelle Artus read this full interview.

Veronica is a bit like the character of Jurieu in Jean Renoir’s The Rules of the Game: she is the outsider, the one who disturbs a social microcosm. More than everything else, it’s the language that makes her foreign. This is why I choose to have three languages in the film. Renoir also took risks when he gave its lead role to Nora Gregor. He chose her because of her accent (she was Austrian). In According to her, Veronica speaking Russian to her son is ‘what separates’. What ‘brings together or separates’ is at the core of my film. Of course it echoes what I saw not so much in New York, but in France, where segregation is a matter of culture and language more than in any other country in the world.Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 11.43.02 AM

According To Her at The Movie DB.

As we watch Veronica’s emotional threads unravel, we witness a tale of a woman in conflict, torn between practicing her art, bonding with her child, and pleasing those around her. It’s an impossible task, one that weighs heavily on this story’s protagonist and causes the viewer to reflect on her own life choices in a deep thought-provoking way.

Watching it, I discovered a wonderful sensation that I seldom experience in films. It’s one of being a complete outsider in a world in which you are deeply immersed. It’s a feeling that no matter what you’ve done, no matter where you are, you are not of that place.

Wonderful Chris Garcia‘s review of According To Her in Klaus at Gun Point.

Interview of Estelle Artus in Agnes Films.

A lot of people don’t realize how much in the dark a director is at the beginning of filming. It’s like sailing by night in high seas, you don’t see anything and everybody relies on you. What makes a director is not that he or she gives direction, it’s the ability to step in the dark and find a path while giving others a feeling of security.

Being in upper class New York, our characters are destined for success. Our heroine is expected to be a mother while maintaining a brilliant musical career and her slim figure. Motherhood can and should be greatly assisted by nannies and boarding schools, while the physical and financial expectations are impossible to avoid.
