Personal Quote:

[on Enemy (2013)] There's a part of me that's very attracted to fantastic or sci-fi, and after Polytechnique (2009), Incendies (2010), and knowing I was going to do Prisoners (2013), I felt that I needed to express myself in a film that's more of a fantasy, a distortion of reality. I like those movies a lot. I was a big fan as a kid. See more »

Trivia:

Villeneuve played hockey in his youth, but considers himself a poor player. He became interested in sci-fi comics through the works of Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, Enki Bilal, Jean-Claude Mézières, Philippe Druillet and Alejandro Jodorowsky. He then developed a passion for cinema and made short films during high school. See more »
