At 44, Martin makes no secret of his pride at having completed his first major project as a director with the film ’10 ans’: “I started out in finance, before studying management in South Africa. There I met friends who were taking film courses. As I was also interested in this field, I redirected my studies towards cinema. Along the way, I made several small productions, and 10 Years is my first feature film. I started writing in 2017 and shooting in 2019.”

And for his first film, Martin was keen to pull out all the stops, choosing his lead actors with care: “I’ve heard a lot of good things about Nalini Aubeeluck, and I’ve also been lucky enough to appreciate her talent in various films she’s starred in. So casting her in my film was an obvious choice. The same goes for Kamil Majestic, a French star with over 400,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. Seduced by my project, he too agreed to be part of this wonderful adventure.”

Asked about the film’s promotion, Martin tells us that the priority is to get it into cinemas: “I want to make a name for myself as a director. To do this, I want the film to be shown in local and international cinemas. For the time being, I have no plans to present it at film festivals”, explains the director.

Synopsis: The film tells the story of a man, father and company boss, who wakes up one morning as a 10-year-old boy. He has to take on the responsibilities of husband, father and manager, all the while looking like a little boy. This sudden transformation will be the cause of many funny and unexpected situations.
