"Your name?" was the question asked time and again during the book signing today by the discreet voice of producer-director-actor Pierre Richard. Arrived ten minutes early, the artist let himself be photographed with his autobiography in hand. Its title, Je sais rien, mais je dirai tout (Litt. I don't know anything, but I'll say everything), published by Flammarion, is a line from one of his comedies.
Admirers of the artist from all generations quickly invade the second floor of the Decitre Bellecour bookstore. Rémy, just sixteen, is discovering Pierre Richard comedies thanks to his mother. Her favorite film is The Goat.
The artist is so popular, that someone tries to negotiate the poster announcing the book signing! For now, sitting at the table behind his glasses, with a shy but undistracted smile, Pierre Richard greets, thanks and signs his book for his fans.
