Claude Lelouch: Cel happened on January 2nd. I was coming back from the mountain where I went to work for a few days. I got back to Paris, I got out of the car, I took out two bags, in which I had 50 years of notes, observations, dialogues heard in the cafes in the street of which I feed my films and my last scenario. By the time I closed my car, the bags were gone. Just the time to look for something in my car that I had forgotten. I did not leave the car. I did not see anything. It’s incredible. My films are nothing but the result of my observations. I lost in ten seconds 50 years of observation. These notes that you have lost, in what form do they appear? It looks like flying leaves, small pieces of paper, leaves. I write about everything I can write when I spot and see something that I like. I noticed my life. I like to write, because when I write I feel that it also fits a little in my memory. There were about 200 leaflets. These are the suitcases of my life that have been stolen from me with the last film I’m working on called “Yes and No”. I had made a more or less definitive version during these ten days that I spent in the mountains where I worked a lot. Do not you have a copy of this work? There are inevitably old drafts that I will find, but there is not the final version on which I worked with all the important notes and the synthesis that I had made. It’s a nightmare. I will have to move back the film by almost a year, the time to put all this back in place. I filed a complaint. Above all, I visited all the bins of the neighborhood where we could have thrown all these notes. I think that everything that happens to us if in the short term it hurts, in the long run, it is for our good. I hope a miracle will happen and that the thief will bring back his notes.
