Coralie Bonnet, the young star who triumphed on the screens 3 years ago as Cinderella died this morning in Normandy during the filming of sequel 2.
She fell off the balcony of her room at the 8th floor of the hotel. Was it an accident, suicide or murder? This film will try to give answers to this terrible question. Who killed Cinderella?


This project started as a short footage which Stéphane Duprat and myself wrote over 10 years ago. It related, in a humorous way the desperate attempts of a man wanting to be seen on television. For different reasons, this film was not produced but the story haunted our minds.
In 2005, we were searching an idea to make a feature film with a very small budget. In order to develop this project towards a long footage we found 2 elements. The first make the hero a successful comedian and the second was to construe the plot around a murder investigation. Of course, we also wanted to keep the comedy aspect.
