An interview with Noëlle Levenez, the producer of "The Fantastic Three", interviewer Lennart Mathias Männik
"Michaël Dichter has an untypical background as a director - he has completed three short films, where he has been both the director and producer and he has also been an actor in two movies, in one of which he had the lead role. ""The Fantastic Three"" is his debut as a film director.
East of France, today. Max, a witty and brave 12-year-old, feels like he has two families instead of one. On one hand his best friends Tom and Vivian and on the other a depressed single mother and a brother in jail.
Dichter didn't want to cast professional actors for the piece, which meant the casting process was long and thorough, playing games with the children to find the trio with the best chemistry and a talent for acting. As a result, the protagonists' acting feels truly professional and carries out the plot in an unbelievably immersing way.
""We shared this feeling that [Michaël] had much more to say, and it was the perfect story for a first feature film: at the same time because it's very personal...and also because it's a very universal story.""
