Shot in the utmost secrecy in September, Arnaud Desplechin’s 11th fiction feature film, Deception, is still undergoing editing, but the director has nonetheless revealed a few details in the French daily Libération about this adaptation of the American writer Philip Roth’s novel of the same name (published in 1990), a work which Desplechin had clearly been planning to bring to the big screen for a very long time, given that the project (which he has now totally revised) already featured among the Cinemart selection back in 2007.

"During lockdown, whilst writing a script which would require wide distribution, extras, a complex schedule and lots of locations, a really old project which I’d left up in the air because I’d never worked out how I could do it, or convey its style, suddenly came back to me", explains Arnaud Deplechin in Libération. "Its modesty resonated with the circumstances imposed. Its characters were confined in their solitude, just like I was (…) Assisted by my co-screenwriter Julie Peyr [Editor’s note: nominated alongside the filmmaker for the 2014 Best Adaptation César and for the 2016 Best Original Screenplay trophy], I went through that old script from A to Z. As we wrote, it was as if a carpet were rolling out before us: our two heroes were trapped in the writer’s study, in the same way that we were confined by lockdown, and we found solutions for every problem we faced (…) Deception takes place in a time which now seems idyllic, before the Twin Towers collapsed and before the fall of the Berlin Wall, and it features refugees, notably women from the East." For the record, the novel is composed of a succession of conversations between Philip, an American novelist based in London for a time, and various women: his mistress, his wife and other less real and sometimes even dreamed female characters.
