Yves Montmayeur - Nice to Meet You, Please Don't Love Me! (2004)

“Filmed live, with very frequent changes in point of view. We will have maximum subjectivity, digressions and brutal flashbacks.” - Yves Montmayeur

Montmayeur is carving out an interesting niche for himself - hanging around great filmmakers with a Hi8 camcorder. His results are candid, vibrant, intimate and more like poetic personality profiles (with punk rock rhythms) than traditional documentaries. “Nice to Meet You. Please Don’t Love Me!” is his portrait of Asia Argento as she directs The Heart is Deceitful…. -Bruce Fletcher
