The Belgian filmmaker Manu Bonmariage, known as the spiritual father of the Strip-Tease show, now has Alzheimer’s at 76. Although his memory plays tricks on him, his daughter Emmanuelle goes back in time to portray a direct cinema filmmaker who was always close to the characters he so loved to film.
