On the lookout behind the cameras, Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, the duo of directors of “Intouchables”, can’t believe it: “The silence on the set is the same as for a scene of love or nudity. As if we were all suspended from what is happening before our eyes: a real exposure… ” Push the door of this secret place if there is one “Fantasy”, confirms Eric Toledano:
