HEARTBREAKER: Chemistry In The House (Tribeca 2010)

user
"It took much longer to get him (Romain Duris) than any woman I've ever known," says HeartBreaker director Pascal Chaumeil, only half-conscious of his double entendre in English, as he speaks of his lead actor's initial reluctance to attempt this romantic comedy with Vanessa Paradis in a post-screening Q & A session. "It was essential to find the right couple. Chemistry is everything." Lucky for Chaumeil, the magic potion is there between Juliette, a former w...

Q&A with Reis Çelik at İstanbul Film Festival

user
“Men are in the gloom!” Director Reis Çelik talks about his film, Night of Silence in the National Competition. In the film on child-brides, Reis Çelik is in obstinacy just like he was in İnat Hikayeleri. He puts such a strong actor as İlyas Salman and a beautiful young girl in the marriage room and never leaves the room. He makes us watch the film even without breathing for 90 minutes. The film returned with a Crystal Bear from Berlin Film Festival, and its journey in T...

Comic-Con IV: A Fan's Hope

user
Morgan Spurlock is the the greatest example of a filmmaker who thinks outside the box and has the imagination and inspiration of a true artist. I compare him to the artist Andy Warhol because he sees what others may view but his artistic talent allows him to create something unique. Perhaps his determination to be a filmmaker after being rejected by the USC film school several times but finally making the cut at the NYU film school opened his eyes in a ...
