Holiday Treat: Vogue Paris 2010 Calendar

24 December 2009 1:38 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek the new Vogue Paris Calendar for 2010, featuring models Iselin Steiro, Natasha Poly and Raquel Zimmerman.

The French edition of Vogue magazine, published since 1920, was taken over by editor Carine Roitfeld in 2001.

Roitfeld is noted for turning the magazine into an industry leader in fashion journalism, restoring its Parisian identity with French staffers while supervising an 'organic' redesign of the magazine by Paris-based M/M.

"'Vogue Paris' is svelte, tough, luxurious, and wholeheartedly in love with dangling-cigarette, bare-chested fashion", said Roitfeld.

Roitfeld regularly draws criticism for the magazine's use of sexuality and humour, which she freely uses to "disrupt fashion's conservatism and pretension."

Vogue Paris also encourages regular guest-editorships, including Kate Moss, Sofia Coppola and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

European Film Awards 2009 Predictions: Best Actress, Actor

12 December 2009 2:33 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Penélope Cruz has already won a best actress European Film Award (for Volver in 2006) and since her role in Broken Embraces is borderline supporting, my guess is that Cannes winner Charlotte Gainsbourg (above, with Willem Dafoe) will be the one taking home the prize for her bereaved sexed-out mother in Lars von Trier’s Antichrist. But who knows? Oscar winner Kate Winslet (for The Reader) could be the dark horse who splits the vote with the brown one (Katie Jarvis for Fish Tank) so the rainbow-colored equine (French Academy’s Cesar winner Yolande Moreau in Séraphine) can win. For the best actor award, I’d say the race is between two Cannes favorites: Tahar Rahim (above) for his [...] »

Trailer for Serge Gainsbourg biopic Gainsbourg (Vie Heroique)

3 December 2009 2:53 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

French 60s pop fans have reason to rejoice because the first trailer for the new Serge Gainsbourg biopic, called simply Gainsbourg, has finally been released.

I know what you're thinking and yes, Serge is indeed the father of Antichrist star Charlotte Gainsbourg, but he's also one of the most iconic French personalities in history as well as a massively respected name in contemporary pop music. Oh yeah, and he successfully bedded Brigitte Bardot, so yes, he truly lived a full life.

Synopsis:

A glimpse at the life of French singer Serge Gainsbourg, from growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris through his successful song-writing years in the 1960s to his death in 1991 at the age of 62.

The trailer is your standard biopic fair, lavishly shot and full of great performances by Eric Elmosnino as Serge, Lucy Gordon as Jane Birkin and Laetitia Casta as B.B.

Trailer after the break.

Gotham Awards 2009 Winners

30 November 2009 7:35 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catalina Saavedra in The Maid (top); Stella Schnabel in You Won’t Miss Me (middle); The Hurt Locker by Kathryn Bigelow (bottom) "Kudos to you, great performance," Rosie Perez told Willem Dafoe, after saying that Lars von Trier’s Antichrist, a dark, sex-filled drama in which Dafoe co-stars with Charlotte Gainsbourg, was a "sick-ass movie." That was followed by: "Was that your … Oooohhhh. It was?" And so went the 2009 edition of the Gotham Awards, in which performers cracked jokes that would be unacceptable on network TV. Unfortunately, that didn’t necessarily make the jokes any funnier or the show any better than, say, the Oscars or the Golden Globes, but on the bright side some of the Gotham choices were [...] »

Anne Billson | Why aren't there more roles like Séraphine for British women?

26 November 2009 1:45 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Frenchwomen in films are just like you and me, except they go a bit further in their failure to grasp reality and masochistic self-loathing, says Anne Billson

In Séraphine, Yolande Moreau gives one of those great female performances more often to be found in French films than in British or American ones. This is not an anorexic Barbie doll with a no-nudity clause in her contract, whose facial expressiveness has been Botoxed out of existence. This is the real deal, a stonking, physical tour de force which makes even De Niro or Keitel's greatest hits look mannered and actorly.

Martin Provost's film was inspired by the life of the "primitive modernist" painter Séraphine de Senlis, whose story carries echoes of the Susan Boyle phenomenon, though let us hope Boyle doesn't end up like Séraphine, who from the outset is clearly a few sandwiches short, but ends up misplacing her entire picnic. »

"I Don't Hate Women": Lars von Trier on Antichrist

23 November 2009 12:03 PM, PST | Rotten Tomatoes | See recent Rotten Tomatoes news »

Danish auteur Lars von Trier is used to controversy following his films; some of his critics have even accused him of courting it for sensationalism and reaction. Yet even with a career that contains the likes of The Idiots (rich kids mocking the handicapped), Dancer in the Dark (which drove star Bjork to never act again) and Dogville (leveled with charges of misogyny and anti-Americanism), the director's latest may be his crowning achievement in outrage. When it debuted at Cannes earlier this year, Antichrist -- starring Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg as a grieving couple who retreat to idyllic woodland »

Burton's Alice Actress Set For Jane Eyre

23 November 2009 10:56 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Mia Wasikowska will swap Tim Burton's fantasy land for the Victorian era for her next movie - she's in negotiations to star in a remake of period drama Jane Eyre.

The acting newcomer, who will soon grace cinema screens as Alice in Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, is in talks to join 300 star Michael Fassbender in a new version of the Charlotte Bronte classic, reports Daily Variety.

The last movie adaptation of Jane Eyre was released in 1996, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and William Hurt.

The upcoming film will be directed by Cary Fukunaga. »

Fassbender and Wasikowska To Star in Jane Eyre?

20 November 2009 2:11 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following his success with Sin Nombre Cary Fukunaga is to adapt Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre from a script by Moira Buffini, and today rumours blossomed that soon-to-be Alice In Wonderland MiaWasikowska is in talks to play the eponymous heroine.

Jane Eyre has been adapted many times in recent years with actresses such as Samantha Morton and Charlotte Gainsbourg taking the lead role, now Focus Features and BBC films look to the relative newcomer to play the governess of Thornfield Manor.

Variety also report that my favourite Inglourious Basterd Michael Fassbender is considering the role of Mr Rochester. While literary adaptations, particularly those under the constraints of a feature film’s running time, rely on a tightly constructed abridging of the original work it is the actors breathing new life into well known characters that ensure a success or deliver a failure.

Fassbender showed his quality in Steve McQueen’s »

Gainsbourg enters another messed up relationship in Patrice Chéreau's Persecution (PERSÉCUTION) trailer

19 November 2009 10:23 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

It's been a few years since I've seen any of French filmmaker Patrice Chéreau new films though I was quite taken with his early 90’s offering Queen Margot, a film which isn't exactly historically accurate but well worth a look. Chéreau has continued to work but none of his films have caught my attention until now with the trailer for his newest offering, a relationship drama titled Persecution (Persécution).

The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, who already delivered an excellent performance this year in Lars von Trier's Antichrist (review), as Sonia and Romain Duris as Daniel, a couple sharing a love/hate relationship. When a mysterious man (played by the great Jean-Hugues Anglade) turns up in Daniel's apartment, he assumes it's a one time event organized by Sonia but when Sonia breaks up with him and the mysterious man is still harassing Daniel, a whole new set of questions arise »

Exclusive Interview: Chris Alexander talks to Lars Von Trier about Antichrist

12 November 2009 8:33 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

One of my favorite contemporary filmmakers has long been Danish enfant terrible Lars Von Trier. From the wrenching delirium of Breaking The Waves, to the vulgar, experimental excess of The Idiots, to the haunting musical melodrama of Dancer In The Dark to the mad stunt Dogville, there really is no one else alive like Von Trier...and he knows it.

And now he's made a horror film.

Perhaps you've heard of Antichrist, the mind bending, soul wounding art house exploitation masterpiece starring singer turned actress Charlotte Gainsbourg (daughter of Jane Birkin and iconic French pop culture figure Serge Gainsbourg) as a woman driven into sexually charged madness - and beyond - by the accidental death of her toddler son.

Read my review of the film here and check out Fangoria's coverage of the film in the current issue.

Viral movies – from Paris with love

Robert Doisneau's famous photograph of a couple kissing has inspired a quirky new short film. Janine di Giovanni talks to its director

Yvan Attal is talking about one of the most famous images of Paris – Robert Doisneau's 1950 photograph, Le Baiser de l'Hotel de Ville, in which a young couple are locked in an embrace as all of Parisian life swirls around them.

This week, French actor-director Attal, 44 (and son-in-law of the late, great French singer Serge Gainsbourg), launches his own tribute to Paris, its lovers and its street life. His three-minute YouTube film, Kisses from Paris, features two beautiful young actors making out all over the city; it's as if Doisneau's couple have returned – and updated their kiss for a new generation. They speak in English, while on the soundtrack Rufus Wainwright sings a melancholy tune.

Attal, speaking in an art deco cinema in a trendy Parisian neighbourhood, was commissioned »

8 November 2009 10:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Cologne, Germany – Jacques Audiard's "A Prophet," Danny Boyle's Oscar champ "Slumdog Millionaire" and Palme d'Or winner "The White Ribbon" from Austrian director Michael Haneke are the front-runners in a crowded field at this year's European Film Awards.

Audiard's hard-hitting French prison tale, Haneke's austere black-and-white period piece and Boyle's Mumbai-based story of rags-to-riches all picked up nominations in the European film, European director, European screenwriter and European cinematographer categories.

"A Prophet" leads the pack with six nominations, including ones for star Tahar Rahim in the European actor category and an Efa Prix d'Excellence nomination for sound design.

Also in the running for best European film 2009 are Stephen Daldry's Oscar winner "The Reader," Scottish director Andrea Arnold's kitchen sink drama "Fish Tank" and Tomas Alfredson's Swedish vampire film "Let the Right One In."
