Danièle Thompson's Cézanne Et Moi, starring Guillaume Gallienne as Paul Cézanne and Guillaume Canet as Émile Zola, had its New York premiere on Wednesday, hosted by Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller at The Whitby Hotel, where I had spoken to Wilson director Craig Johnson, screenwriter Daniel Clowes, Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Judy Greer and Isabella Amara.
The women in Cézanne's life were his mother Anne-Elisabeth (Sabine Azéma) and wife Hortense (Déborah François also in Claude Lelouch's latest Chacun sa vie). For Zola, his mother Émilie (Isabelle Candelier), wife Alexandrine (Alice Pol -Lelouch's Un + une), and mistress Jeanne (Freya Mavor). Guillaume Gallienne, who played Pierre Bergé in Jalil Lespert's Yves Saint Laurent gave some clarity into his vision of Cézanne, his relationship to Zola, and the women around them.

Painting in cinema seems to be all the rage this spring. Following the trailer for the Canadian feature Maudie, the French biographical drama film Cézanne and I has just recently released a U.S. preview.
Directed by Danièle Thompson of Avenue Montagne and Change of Plans, the film portrays the true story about the friendship between 19th century novelist Émile Zola and painter Paul Cézanne when they first met as schoolmates. The two friends would eventually grow up in search for fame and glory, sparking a feudal rivalry.
On the shortlist for France’s Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film pick, which would eventually go to Elle, Magnolia Pictures will release the film this April. Judging from the preview, it looks to be a well-composed story of heated friendship. Starring Guillaume Canet, Guillaume Gallienne, Alice Pol, Déborah François and Sabine Azéma, check out the trailer below.

"I'd like to paint as you write." Magnolia Pictures has debuted an official Us trailer for Danièle Thompson's biopic drama Cézanne Et Moi, also known as Cézanne and I, about a friendship between two artists. The film tells of the parallel paths between the lives and careers of post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Émile Zola, starting as school pals in Aix-en-Provence to working artists in Paris. Guillaume Gallienne plays Cézanne, and Guillaume Canet plays Zola, with a cast including Alice Pol, Déborah François, Isabelle Candelier, Sabine Azéma, Freya Mavor and Félicien Juttner. This didn't play at any film festivals, but it did already open in European cinemas last year. The film is described as a "polished period piece" that "boldly paints a picture of two 19th century masters." This looks quite good. Take a look. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Danièle Thompson's Cézanne Et Moi, »
