How could the murderess get out of a closed cell from the outside? The only clue found in the room is a sheet of paper on which you can read a series of numbers and letters with no apparent meaning. Coherent work of a sick person, or cryptogram ?
“Of course, you have to earn that trust on your side, and from the smallest role to the main roles, everyone must arrive having worked on their character and understood who they are”, he continues. “You must have thought long and hard about developing the person you become on set.”

BLOOD DIAMOND (2006)
“I knew from reading the script that there would be significant personal research to do”, DiCaprio says of the Blood Diamond experience. “This is one of the aspects that immediately attracted me to this film. We all had to immerse ourselves in this world and collect first-hand accounts. Having to play a man from Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), he It was important for me to hear local people speak.

Nolan, fascinated by dreams, looks back on the period during which he imagined Inception. “I was then fascinated by dreams and by the relationship between our daytime life and our nightlife”, says the filmmaker. “The fact that the elements of a dream – whether distressing, joyful or supernatural – are produced by our own minds has always struck me as an interesting paradox: what this reveals about the potential of the imaginary is absolutely extraordinary. I started to think about how we could use this in a spectacular action film with a very human dimension.”
DJANGO UNCHAINED (2012)
Quentin Tarantino initially saw the character Calvin Candie older, but the interest of DiCaprio for the film forced him to reconsider. “I then set about reconfiguring Candie as a kind of young Caligula”, says the filmmaker. “His great-grandfather created this business of cotton exploitation, and his grandfather continued after him and made it a profitable business. His father, then, further increased the profits.”
“Calvin is the fourth Candie to lead the company and he’s grown weary”, continues Tarantino. “He doesn’t care about cotton, that’s why he deals with slave fights. He’s a kind of flamboyant young prince, a Louis XIV at Versailles.”
