Les Temps qui changent (2004) is Téchiné's sixteenth and latest film, which is a useful point of departure for examining the collaborative nature of his work. It shows the extent to which an approach excessively centred on the director as auteur risks missing wider creative processes. The film explores the relationship between past and present while recapitulating the motifs and scenes from previous Téchiné films. It restages Téchiné's simultaneous attentiveness to socio-historical determinants and strata, and also to desires, dreams, aspirations, a virtual realm completely distinct from the antiseptic computer-generated animated film that advertises the new media complex. Despite the film's typical pluralism, it is the reunion of Deneuve and Depardieu that is at its centre, along with the central love story and love quest. Téchiné always writes his own screenplays, but always in collaboration with at least one other. Aside from that with Deneuve, his other long-term collaboration has been with Martinen Giordano, who worked as the editor on La Matiouette.
