The witty melodrama about a love triangle in French "The Honest Man" became the second directorial work of the famous actor Louis Garrel ("Friends"), who also starred. Together with him, his wife Laetitia Casta and a very young Lily-Rose Depp starred in the film. Today, one of the most famous French actors of our time, Louis Garrel, is celebrating his birthday. This charming brunette first appeared on the screen at 6, at 20 became known around the world for his role in the movie "Dreamers", and at 23 he received the Cesar award in the "Most Promising Actor" nomination.
