It's really time to wrap this interview up. Having a translator would have been a very good idea. Or let her just speak French, some of your audience would understand, as opposed to now where we don't understand what she is trying saying.

And yes, I speak French.

was marie personally aware of how frustrating her character was in making "le rayon vert"? how did she connect with that?

It would have been nice if there was a translator present. This interview was extremely difficult to listen to.
