Set in the 1780s and the 1980s respectively, the bicentennial TV series "Les Jupons de la révolution" and the thriller "Blanc de chine" demonstrated production designer Jean-Marc Kerdelhue's facility for period and contemporary settings. Having staged the the Didier Kaminka comedies "Promotion canapé" and "À quoi tu penses-tu?" in the Caribbean and Florida, he returned to the 18th century in 1996 for Edouard Molinaro's Sacha Guitry adaptation "Beaumarchais". Kerdelhue next headed to the Riviera for the madcap Cannes romp "La Cité de la peur" and the canine fantasy "Didier" before selecting the Parisian locales for the stalking comedy "Mauvais genre" and turning Saint-Nazaire into the fictional port of Angernaud for the cult thriller "Le Pouple". In 2000, he recreated French Polynesia for Alain Corneau's World War II adventure "Le Prince du Pacifique", but returned to contemporary chic for the Audrey Tautou psychothriller "He Loves Me...He Loves Me Not". A cosy bourgeois home provided the setting for the hostage satire "Welcome to the Roses", while a railway station was transformed into an idyllic wedding venue for the equally dark "Un Vrai bonheur, le film". Kerdelhue's sense of place proved equally acute in Fabien Onteniente's vacation farces "Camping", "Disco" and "Camping 2", as well as the talent agency and body swap comedies "My Stars" and "Switch". He also created atmospheric nightclub and barge settings for the crime flicks "Truands" and "The Blonde With Bare Breasts".
