"It has been 2 years since I quit smoking. I spent 20 years taking deep drags off my cigarette end, so I had to pay tribute to my good old friend: the evening cigarette. The one we are supposed to enjoy in calmness and serenity when the phone stops ringing, the children are asleep and the washing-up is done ; in a nutshell: the coolest cigarette of the day… Except that it is still a cigarette and it is just as dangerous as any other cigarette." Matthieu Van Eeckhout – Director
