Capturing the Cousteau allure by Anne-Katrin Titze

Jérôme Salle on Lambert Wilson as Jacques-Yves Cousteau: "It helps when you ask a very nice person to be a very tough person."

Once again, inside the Furman Gallery at Lincoln Center during the Rendez-Vous with French Cinema exhibition of Paul Ronald's color photographs from Federico Fellini's 81/2, where I met Christophe Honoré for a conversation on Les Malheurs De Sophie, The Odyssey (L'Odyssée) director Jérôme Salle spoke with me on the performances of Lambert Wilson and Audrey Tautou. Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, composer Alexandre Desplat, Calypso captain Albert Falco (Vincent Heneine), nicknamed Bébert (which recalls for me the cat featured in Emmanuel Bourdieu's Louis-Ferdinand Céline), were also washed ashore.

Jérôme Salle: "I'm the kind of director who loves to tell stories with pictures more than words." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

In 2015, at an Oceana event hosted by Cobie Smulders, I spoke with Jacques-Yves Cousteau's granddaughter and Expedition Blue Planet filmmaker, Alexandra Cousteau. In my conversation with The Odyssey (L'Odyssée) director, Jérôme Salle, we explore the world around Alexandra's grandfather portrayed by Lambert Wilson in his film with Audrey Tautou as Jacques' wife Simone, Pierre Niney (Adrian in François Ozon's Frantz) and Benjamin Lavernhe as their sons.

Simone (Audrey Tautou) and Jacques Cousteau (Lambert Wilson)

With a screenplay, co-written with Laurent Turner, loosely based on the books by Jean-Michel Cousteau (My Father, the Captain: Life with Jacques Cousteau) and Albert Falco (Capitaine de La Calypso) and a score by longtime Wes Anderson composer Alexandre Desplat, Salle takes us on a personal family journey at sea.

25 films all but guaranteed to cheer you up

9 March 2017 11:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Richards Mar 24, 2017

Need to find a bit of movie happiness? Here are 25 films that might just do the trick...

Let's face it, we could all probably do with a little bit of cheering up right about now. Times are scary and times are tough, so it's perfectly natural to look for some kind of reassurance that everything will indeed be all right in the end.

Film is perhaps one of the most powerful and effective tools in doing this. It can be a transportative experience, an escape from reality, and, most importantly, it can act as a reminder of all that is good in the world.

With that in mind, here’s a list of 25 movies that are almost-guaranteed to make you smile and restore your faith in humanity...

City Lights

In truth, any of Charlie Chaplin’s films are perfect for those times when you just need to smile. »

The original companies will continue to release film and TV projects under their respective labels.

Backed by what representatives called “substantial equity investment” from China Cultural And Entertainment Fund (Ccef), the parties have merged to create a film and TV producer-financier.

Ske chairman and CEO Sidney Kimmel (main picture) and Ivanhoe Pictures chairman Robert Friedland (middle picture) will serve as co-chairmen of Sk Global.

Chairwoman Yang Liu and managing director Alick Dong of China-focused private equity fund and investment management company Ccef will oversee the investment and provide strategic advice to Sk Global as the venture seeks to expand throughout Asia.

Dong will join Kimmel, Friedland and Ivanhoe Pictures co-founder and Ske president John Penotti (pictured below Friedland) on the Sk Global board alongside Kimmel advisor Matthew Kamens and Ivanhoe Pictures vice-chairman Gary Gartner.

Sk Global will control the combined libraries of both companies including all current productions, comprising more than 75 features.

Watch: Audrey Tautou's Star-Making Audition for “Amélie”

17 February 2017 11:30 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Ask any 10 people what their favorite movie is, and at least five will probably say “Amélie.” Jean Pierre Jeunet’s whimsical 2001 romantic comedy about a lonely Parisian waitress who plays guardian angel in the lives of strangers quickly became—and remains to this day—a cult favorite for misfits everywhere. Jeunet originally wrote the role for English actor Emily Watson but rewrote it for a French actress due to scheduling conflicts and Watson’s difficulty speaking the language. Audrey Tautou was already an up-and-comer in her native France, but her role as the titular heroine was her springboard to international stardom.  Even without subtitles, it's easy to see Tautou's exceptional ability to communicate with her eyes and through body language. Also notable is her use of an actual phone as a prop. Before she went on to charm audiences, Tautou had clearly won over her auditioners, whose laughs can be heard off-screen. »

Exclusive: Phillipa Soo Embraces Amélie’s Freedom and Whimsy in New Broadway Adaptation

8 February 2017 9:17 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“We can’t get rid of each other,” Phillipa Soo says fondly of her former Hamilton co-stars. After a year playing Eliza Schuyler Hamilton in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway musical, the Tony-nominated actress -- like most of the core original cast members -- left the show last summer to focus on the next step of her career, which will see her playing Amélie in the Broadway musical adaptation of the 2001 French romantic comedy starring Audrey Tautou. “You have a little bit of sadness, because you’re like, ‘Oh, this means it’s the end of something,’” Soo said last year, just before departing. “But it’s the beginning of something else.”

In the months since leaving Hamilton, she joined Moana, providing the voice for one of the villagers in the Disney animated film for which Miranda composed original music. And most recently, the Schuyler sisters -- Soo, Renee Elise Goldsberry and Jasmine Chephas Jones -- reunited »

Etienne Comar’s ‘Django’ Opens RDV With French Cinema in New York (Exclusive)

18 January 2017 11:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– After world premiering on opening night at Berlin Film Festival, Etienne Comar’s ‘Django’ will have its North American bow at the start of the 22nd Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, the Manhattan-set festival organized by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and French film promotion org UniFrance.

Rather than a traditional biopic, the film chronicles the tumultuous life of jazz legend Django Reinhardt and his family during WWII and his escape from Nazi-occupied France. The film stars rising French actor Reda Kateb (“Hippocrate”) in the title role, opposite Cécile de France (“The Young Pope”) who plays Reinhardt’s friend and muse.

Django” marks the directorial debut of Comar, a well-seasoned French producer and screenwriter whose credits include Maiwenn’s “Mon Roi” and Xavier Beauvois’s “Of Gods and Men,” both of which competed at Cannes. “Mon Roi” won best actress (for Emmanuelle Bercot) and “Of Gods and Men” took home the grand prize. »
