A doubtful boy. Teenager, Ivan Jablonka, born in 1973, dreamed of having the revolver eyes ofHarrison ford as Indiana Jones. Still a teenager, he swapped Harrison’s Stetson for the “Latin Quarter” jacket ofHippolyte Girardot in pursuit of her star, a brilliant and elusive college student in A merciless world.
But Ivan was like you and me, maybe. Rather weakling and more skilled at knitting alexandrines – his specialty – bloated than dancing a slow with Sophie Marceau in The party. This is how we become the favorite confidant of the girls who make our hearts beat, rather than their Indiana Jones.
