Noah Tsika: Laurence Anyways: Xavier Dolan's Romantic Masterpiece
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A sweeping romantic epic that appears to have been effortlessly made, the glorious Laurence Anyways, which is playing in New York City at Cinema Village after a brief, barely heralded run at the Angelika (and on that theater's smallest screen, no less), is also an advertisement for moviemaking as a young person's pursuit. Directed by Québec's then-22-year-old Xavier Dolan (now 24), Laurence looks at the decade-long love affair between a trans woman and her female-identified, ever-passionate partner. It traces their breakup, by painful piecemeal, as Fred (played by the spectacular Suzanne Clément) awakens to her admiration for the trans Laurence (Melvil Poupaud in a revelatory performance), while at the same time realizing that her erotic needs are hyper-specific, and that they're not about to change: Entering her 40s toward the end of the film, Fred experiences a surge of sexual energy, but it's not the sort that might jibe with Laurence's needs. Throughout the film, Fred ...

Brian Formo: 'Our Generation Can Take This': An Interview With Xavier Dolan, and the Actors of Laurence Anyways
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Quebecois filmmaker Xavier Dolan might seem combative about age, but what he is most interested in is the differences in generations. A former child actor who began life on set at age five, he's been equally revered and reviled for having his first three films debut at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival (the first being I Killed My Mother, in 2009, which he directed at the age of 19, followed by Heartbeats in 2010). His newest film, Laurence Anyways, also debuted at Cannes (in 2012), and is finally starting to play in theaters in the U.S. this week. Being on set at such a young age got Dolan around adults much younger than most, and has perhaps enhanced his ability to write older characters with the nuance and observation of someone much older. "Being on set as a kid and hearing about sex stories and hearing people swear ... it's a very specific atmosphere." Dolan laughed when I met with him for an interview during the AFI Film Festival, "When you're a kid and you' ...

Karin Badt: Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's "A Castle in Italy" Brings Brother Back to Life at Cannes
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The last time I saw Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, three years ago, she was in tears as her brother had just died of AIDS---and she cut our Cannes interview short. This year she has a film in Competition: A Castle in Italy. As her two previous films, this one is about Bruni-Tedeschi's intimate family life, with a great portion devoted to the brother-sister relationship. The plot: the brother (Ludovic) is struggling with his imminent death; the sister (Louise) is struggling with a desire, at age 43, to have a child. In the meantime, the (extraordinarily wealthy) family seems to need money and is selling off the family castle, the last memory of the deceased father. We also have a love story between Louise and a goofy younger man (played by Louis Garrel) who was actually Bruni-Tedeschi's long-time companion in real life. Bruni-Tedeschi's real mother, the pianist Marisa Borini, has an important role in the film as well, as Louise's strong mother, clearly the pillar of t ...

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Roman Polanski will direct his wife, Emmanuelle Seigner, in a film adaptation of David Ives' "Venus in Fur."

The director said pre-production and screenplay work on "D." will take a few more months. ...

'A Burning Hot Summer' review: lukewarm
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
'A Burning Hot Summer' review: lukewarm "A Burning Hot Summer," from veteran French director Philippe Garrel, traces the relationship trajectories of two artsy couples during a summer in Rome. The story is narrated by Paul (Jérôme Robart), an actor, who, like his girlfriend, Elisabeth (Céline Sallette), performs bit parts in movies (they meet while filming a French Resistance tale). Paul is introduced to Frédéric (Louis Garrel, the director's son), a handsome, wealthy painter who is married to Angèle (Monica Bellucci), a film actress on the verge of the big time. The two men discuss many things, including politics - Paul, who spends some of his time hawking a leftist newspaper on the streets, asserts the necessity of revolution, an attitude that brings out Frédéric's deep cynicism.
