Lucia interviews one of France' most popular contemporary directors Patrice Leconte. Leconte's latest film, Intimate Strangers, continues his humane engagement with sexually frustrated characters searching for some human connection. She addresses the interconnections between his works, his view of Alfred Hitchcock, and the current cult of sexual explicitness in French cinema.
