Jehnny Beth interview: ‘Amelie is the worst film ever, a lie from start to finish’

The singer/songwriter extends her hatred to people who love the Audrey Tautou movie

I wasn’t allowed to watch TV as a child. I watched films that my parents suggested: Truffaut, Godard, a lot of Hitchcock and Italian movies. I saw Psycho when I was around eight. I heard my parents say: “You can’t watch this.” I remember going to America with them when I was 13 and visiting the house of Psycho and being really excited. I learned very early on that a piece of art is just an expression.

What’s your favourite film?

Whimsy with Measure: Gondry’s Reflection on Youth and Imagination

There are certain expectations that come with a Gondry film; his trademarks have helped to define such an idiosyncratic career and vision. Casting the impossibilities to the wind and expectations of filmmaking, Michel Gondry has tackled films that have defied their own existence. And so with Microbe and Gasoline, which is not so much an autobiography but more so of a realization of an adolescent yearning, this filmmaker injects his sensitivities to a coming of age narrative that is revisited so often that its familiarity is both its strength and weakness. Serving as a reminder to Gondry’s visual strengths and sense of whimsy, Microbe and Gasoline positions itself above the usual narrative as a cheerful ode to the youthful imagination and escapism.

Known by his peers as Microbe for his flimsy stature, Daniel (Ange Dargent) is a social outcast, »

Spanish Producer Mate Cantero Dies

14 August 2015 2:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mate Cantero, a pioneering woman producer who saw her native Spain as part of a larger world, died Monday Aug.11 after a long illness battling cancer. She was 54.

Cantero got her first break making “Veraz” with French producer-distributor Stephane Sorlat, founder of Bac Films with Jean Labadie. She would go on to create Mate Productions with Sorlat in 1992, then become his wife in a marriage the lasted into the next decade.

After years of seemingly endemic crisis, the Spanish film industry found some kind of financial stability from the mid-‘90s, which allowed Spanish producers to attempt more ambitious films at home or step up to the table with equity in international co-productions.

From 1996, though based out of Madrid, living with her family in the leafy suburb, Cantero would with Sorlat make her best-know, biggest – and among them most successful – productions, Notably, these were with Bigas Luna (1997’s “The Chambermaid on the Titanic, »

Book Review: From France With Love: Gender And Identity In French Romantic Comedy By Mary Harrod (I. B. Tauris)

From France With Love: Gender And Identity In French Romantic Comedy

By Mary Harrod (I. B. Tauris, £62/ $99)264 pages. Hardback. Isbn: 9781784533588

Review by Diane Rodgers

French romantic comedy has been enjoying something of a popularity boom, beginning slowly in the 1990s and showing no sign of waning two decades later.  The 'comédie romantique' (still a relatively new term in the French language) now firmly standardised as a popular film genre in France. The rom-com genre has outperformed all others financially, responsible for around 50% of domestic box office takings and the lion's share of French film production. So why, Mary Harrod poses, has the area been so badly neglected by scholarly research?

This book is not, perhaps, for those with a casual or passing interest in the genre; some degree of academic knowledge and awareness of related literature is assumed here. However, throughout the study, Harrod makes a strong case for academic »

Film Review: ‘Microbe and Gasoline’

9 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Michel Gondry’s movies were books, they’d come with hand-stitched covers, fold-out pop-ups and a progression of flipbook-style doodles in the bottom corner of every page. No other working director brings quite the same lo-fi, do-it-yourself quality to his filmmaking, and yet, Gondry’s inventive charm has often proven to be his own worst enemy, overtaking and cutesifying stories that might play better without all the confetti and curlicues. With “Microbe and Gasoline,” the French writer-director has wisely restrained his usual flourishes, allowing the two teenage leads in his relatively calm summer-vacation coming-of-age comedy to assume center stage, imbuing them with creative agency, rather than forcing them to compete with the film’s own style. What emerges is an admittedly small, but wonderfully sincere portrait of two adolescent outsiders determined to pave their own way in the world.

Quietly released in France after being slighted by the festival circuit, »

Watch: First International Trailer For Michel Gondry’s 'Microbe And Gasoline'

19 June 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Flying mostly under the radar, Michel Gondry's "Microbe And Gasoline" is yet another very budget endeavor for the filmmaker who always manages to find new ways to repurpose cardboard. While the phrase Gondry-esque is perhaps thrown around too often, this latest is one you truly can't imagine coming from anybody else. Ange Dargent and Théophile Bacquet lead the movie (which also has an appearance by Gondry's "Mood Indigo" star Audrey Tautou) in the tale of Microbe and Diesel, two pals who decide that summer with their respective families won't be any fun. Instead, they build their own wacky car and hit the highway for an adventure that takes them across France.  Read More: Interview: Michel Gondry On 'Mood Indigo,' Fancy Props, And The Future Of Stop-Motion Animation The film opens in France on July 8th. There's no U.S. distribution yet, so no word on if/when it might land here. »

First Look: Michel Gondry's Road Movie About 'Microbe & Gasoil'

15 May 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

This sounds like it's going to be so much fun. The first photo from the new Michel Gondry film has hit the web. Gondry moves quickly and quietly when working in France, we didn't even know this was shot yet. Microbe et Gasoil, as it's titled (or Microbe and Gasoil), is already filmed and stars Ange Dargent and Théophile Baquet as the two boys, along with Audrey Tautou. This first photo won't make sense until you hear the plot, then you'll have a big smile on your face when you realize. "As the summer holidays approach, the two friends don't want to spend two months in the company of their families, so they build their own 'car' out of a motor mower and some planks of wood, and set off on an adventure on the roads of France." Here's the first photo for Microbe et Gasoil, posted by Film Divider »

International Star You Should Know: French Actor Pierre Niney

15 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dashing, refined and articulate, 26-year-old French actor Pierre Niney gained mainstream popularity in France with EuropaCorp romantic laugher “It Boy,” and broke out last year on a larger stage in Jalil Lespert’s “Yves Saint Laurent.” His performance as the famed fashion designer earned him a Cesar award for best actor.

Early Years

Niney trained at the prestigious Comedie-Francaise, and started his acting career in theater, but he has a soft spot for silent film comedy. “I grew up watching Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton,” he says. “When preparing a role, I work first on the body language and physical aspects of the performance; the psychological dimension comes naturally, once I’m in character.”

Fest Fave

Niney wowed the crowd with his versatility at the recent Colcoa fest celebrating French films in L.A., playing a troubled writer in Yann Gozlan’s Alfred Hitchcock-influenced thriller “A Perfect Man” (which »

Khan, Sy and Knudsen Join Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones in 'Inferno'

17 February 2015 3:02 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't particularly enjoyed either of the two previous Dan Brown novel adaptations, not The Da Vinci Code (a book that was so bad I had to stop reading it) or Angels and Demons (a book I actually enjoyed and a movie that was even worse than Da Vinci). Next up is Inferno, with Tom Hanks back to star as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and Ron Howard back to direct. Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) was already announced as a co-star and today Sony announced three more names joining the cast and they are, in fact, reason to possibly get interested. First off, Jones will star opposite Hanks as Dr. Sienna Brooks, a doctor tending to Langdon at the beginning of the story after he's grazed by a bullet and eventually becomes mixed in his latest mystery drawing from Dante's dark epic poem. amz asin="B00AXIZ4TQ" size »

Aronofsky hails Berlin's "incredible selection"

16 February 2015 9:31 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

“An incredible selection” was the verdict given by jury president Darren Aronofsky about the Berlinale’s 2015 competition line-up.

Speaking at the the closing gala, Aronofsky said: “Hats off to Dieter [Kosslick], the curators have made an incredible selection. It’s been incredibly difficult to decide on the prizes (…) there were so many quality films that it was hard not to award many, many of the films.“

In fact, the International Jury, which included actors Daniel Brühl and Audrey Tautou and the former Golden Bear winner Claudia Llosa from Peru, gave awards to nine of the 19 Competition titles by splitting two of the prizes, and showed the unanimity of its decisions by all being on stage together for the presentation of the awards in the Berlinale Palast.

Jafar Panahi’s Taxi became the second Iranian film in the Berlinale’s 65-year history to win the Golden Bear - after Asghar Farhadi’s A Separation in 2011 - and is Panahi »

Banned Iranian director Jafar Panahi’s Taxi won the Berlin Film Festival’s Golden Bear on Saturday (Feb 14).

The film captures life in contemporary Iran through interactions with passengers in a Tehran cab. Taxi is Panahi’s third feature since the Iranian authorities banned him from making films at the end of 2010, following This is Not a Film and Closed Curtain, which was in competition in Berlin 2013.

Panahi, who was also banned from travelling and giving interviews in 2010 sentence, was not able to travel to Berlin for the premiere of his film. 

This time around, Panahi has circumvented the ban by turning a yellow cab into a mobile film studio with a camera placed on the dashboard. As the cab drives through the vibrant and colourful streets of Tehran, it picks up »

10 ridiculously silly movie orgasms: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Biggs & more

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....

The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!

From Jennifer Aniston's otherworldly pleasure to Jason Biggs's doubly embarrassing shortcomings - here are 10 fantastically farcical orgasms on the silver screen below:

1. Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999)

Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.

Sadly Stifler (Seann William Scott) had previously coerced Jim to set up a webcam in his room so they can all watch the frisky teenage pair, but he unwittingly »

Berlin: Darren Aronofsky, Dieter Kosslick Open 65th Berlin Film Festival

5 February 2015 1:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, who is president of the jury, and festival director Dieter Kosslick opened the 65th Berlin Film Festival at the Berlinale Palast on Thursday.

Asked by the evening’s host, Anke Engelke, whether it was difficult to enjoy watching movies as a filmmaker, Aronofsky said: “When movies are really good I still get lost. I know movies are working when I am not thinking about anything but what’s happening.”

Engelke joked that there were more than 400 films in the festival, and “you are going to love each and every film that North Korea allows you to see.”

On the red carpet were the stars of the opening film, Isabel Coixet’s “Nobody Wants the Night,” Juliette Binoche, Rinko Kikuchi and Gabriel Byrne.

Joining Aronofsky at the opening were fellow jury members actor Daniel Bruhl, directors Bong Joon-ho and Claudia Llosa, producer Martha De Laurentiis, actress Audrey Tautou »

The Noteworthy: Pan & Scan, Panahi on Freedom, "Smog Journeys", Women in Hollywood

Above: David Bordwell drops science on that horrific and longstanding practice we know as "Pan & Scan." Joining President Darren Aronofsky on the International Jury at the Berlinale next month are the following: Daniel Brühl, Bong Joon-ho, Martha De Laurentiis, Claudia Llosa, Audrey Tautou, and Matthew Weiner. For Grantland, Steven Hyden has written a wonderful article on Gene Hackman:

"He couldn’t have planned it this way, but Hackman had aged into a screen persona — he looked like he had spent years driving a truck or working as a doorman before lucking into the movies, because that’s basically what had happened. Hackman might’ve studied the Method under Lee Strasberg (“He played with people’s heads a lot,” he recalled derisively of Strasberg in 2001), but he could just be and be authentic onscreen."
