Bertrand Tavernier's The French Minister (Quai D’Orsay) starring Thierry Lhermitte, Raphaël Personnaz, Niels Arestrup and Anaïs Demoustier, with Jane Birkin impersonating a version of Toni Morrison and Julie Gayet as a potent advisor, is the closing night film of New York's Rendez-Vous with French Cinema.
We discussed the importance of rhythm for his film, how Billy Wilder and Jacques Becker set a mood, the working relationship with writers Christophe Blain and Cultural Counselor to the French Embassy Antonin Baudry, Arestrup's dedication, and the decision to not watch films when making one. Tavernier also gave me insight into how he created the unequaled complexity of character with Philippe Noiret and Isabelle Huppert in Coup De Torchon.

This is the @puremovies review of Cinema Paradiso, starring Philippe Noiret, Enzo Cannavale, Antonella Attili and Isa Danieli, and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. If your spirits need lifting through the cold and dark winter months, the beautifully saturated tones of Guisepe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso are just the ticket to warm the cockles. This classic film, made in 1988 and fully restored to celebrate its 25th anniversary, is Tornatore’s love letter to cinema, and is imbued with the nostalgia for the Italy of bygone days. Based in a small Sicilian town, Cinema Paradiso explores how film can bind a community, as witnessed by the film’s protagonist, Salvatore, who works in the local cinema during his formative years. Played by three different actors throughout the different stages of his life, Salvatore experiences firsthand the impact his local cinema has on the small community, creating a microcosm of society where the villagers laugh, »
