Next February, Jean-Paul Rouve will start shooting the film Consent. He will slip into the skin of Gabriel Matzneff, a fallen writer suspected of pedophilia.
It is arguably the darkest role of his entire career. According to information from Closer, whose last issue is available on newsstands this Friday, October 15, Jean-Paul Rouve will soon take on the role of Gabriel Matzneff in the movie The consent, adaptation by Vanessa Filho of the eponymous autobiographical text by Vanessa Springora. Published in January 2020, the book traces the affair under the influence of its author, then 14 years old, with the French writer Gabriel Matzneff, 50 years old.
Always according to Closer, shooting of the film will start in February 2022. Kim Higelin, granddaughter of Jacques Higelin revealed in 2020 in the series Shame on France, was chosen to lend her features to a young Vanessa Springora, precisely at the time of his forced affair with the pedophile writer. According to its producers, the film will retrace “the triple predation: sexual, literary and psychic” suffered by the teenager, and will highlight “the drifts of an era (the mid-1980s) and the complacency of an environment blinded by talent and celebrity”.
