In 1998, Ducastel and Jacques Martineau carried off their attempt to make a musical about AIDS, and "Jeanne and the Perfect Guy" became one of the movie events of the year. Jacques Martineau, an Arts graduate, is a lecturer at the Université de Paris X, at Nanterre. “Jeanne and the Perfect Guy” was his first screenplay, which he went on to codirect with Olivier Ducastel. A musical dealing with the subject of AIDS, this film was one of the major movie events of 1999. Their new film, “Funny Felix,” featuring Sami Bouajila, was released in France on April 19, 2000.
