Jean-Jacques Aillagon, the French minister of Culture, said last Saturday that he had to write to Jack Valenti (the Hollywood majors' man) to remind him his promise to stop fighting against Europe's support to cinema:
Jack Valenti answered me that this was a misunderstanding. His office sent me a letter that showed its interpretation of the minister tagline: "M. Aillagon, minister, company Liberté, égalité, fraternité"...
We told you that culture is an exception. And we want to keep it on this side of the Atlantic ;-).
