‘Un homme, un vrai’ is a French production directed by the Larrieu brothers, which narrates three moments in the relationship of two characters emotionally united: The meeting in Paris, the separation in Ibiza and their reunion in the Pyrenees. The scenes on the island were filmed in April 2002 and include pictures of the airport, off the coast of Sant Josep and a luxurious mansion in Sant Miquel. According to the plot, Ibiza is the place where the couple separate and where they have sex with other characters of the same sex. The defiant image of the island influenced the directors to set this part of history in it.
During the Ibizan fragments in ‘Un homme, un vrai’, actor and theater director from Málaga, Antonio Cantos (based in Ibiza), was involved as a lawyer and a transvestite. As the actor recalls, this dual characterization was because the person who had to play the character of the transvestite did not show up the day of shooting, so the directors offered him to also perform that role.
Antonio Cantos also took part in another production filmed on the island, ‘Welcome 2 Ibiza’ (2001). This film was directed by David Winters, choreographer of several films starring Elvis Presley.
Commentary written by Enrique Villalonga, head of the production company Filmótica.
