My mother Juliette feels at home everywhere. Towards Italy she nurtures the love of an American and the disgust of a French and now she no longer speaks a language but an irresistible Esperanto, where every sentence is composed of a French accent like Inspector Clouseau, American, Italian and Spanish terms, since she has been living in Mexico for some time with her dog Yo Yo. She plays bridge, walks, paints, like an old-fashioned artist, perhaps the most artistic of the whole family.

The actor has repeatedly underlined how it was his mother who gave him the great love for nature and the environment: “She was the daughter of French peasants, but I didn’t have time to get to know them”.
