It was Jean-Paul Rappeneau who asked me to make a book on the set of the film, “Le Hussard sur le Toit” (“The Horseman on the Roof”) adapted from the work of Jean Giono.
For six months I was part of the team that produced this film.
The book “Le Hussard” Ed du Chêne was released at the same time as the film, autumn 1995.- Hans Silvester
“It starts like thunder and it becomes a monstrous picaresque novel, funny, tender, disheveling and ultimately serious.” – Jean Giono
