Ley Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, shared with Palme D & # 39; Or and Mr. Kechiche said that interviews with "torture" were made to work with him because of other things, he asked them to repeat the practice of sexual assault, which they thought they were sufficiently unnecessary.

They also complain that they are forced to re-open another sick body with the result that one of the actresses was knocked on the door.
Cannes Film Festival, where Ms. Seydoux was a member of the largest women's jury, she returned to the subject in an interview, saying she was now at different times, when the complaints of women really took them.

Mr Kechiche was arrested in connection with the complaint, she said. He told her she was a "good little girl, a girl who broke her," when she opposed her treatment, Seydoux said.
"It is unbearable that there is nothing right to arrest people, and I do not expect the film, I think today my witnesses, Adèle and I , that's a good wish, really, I hope so. "
