There are two steps to the solution:
(1) When you open Antoines* in GSView make a note of the lower left
coordinates by hovering your mouse-pointer at that corner (the
coordinates are reported in the little box at the side of GSView) then
do the same for the upper right coordinates.
(2) Open up your file in a text editor and insert after the
    %%CreationDate line the following:
    %%BoundingBox: 98 513 462 804
where 98 and 513 (for example) are the x and y coordinates of the lower
left corner and 462 and 804 are for the upper right.

Your Latex file should then be able to import the file with no
