Ludivine Sagnier is officially my lovely French girlfriend!!!
讓我用我的小說紀念你 (Bernard Giraudeau 1947~2010)
一位紐約同性戀針對我的小 lulu 所做的訪談
眾所皆知筆者視與 Ludivine Sagnier 結婚為畢生心願，於毫無疑問史上最偉大的二零一零年金馬影展 目賭 女神風采後更加堅定志向。為了證明父親為英文教師的莎妮耶，真的不是因為英文很遜所以沒有演好萊塢電影，請參閱下方中英對照訪談內容。廢話不多說，希望筆者可以在三十五歲之前辦個 Ludivine Sagnier 影展，並邀請她參與映後座談，共進晚餐後順利求婚成功。(兩者之間的連結仍然很遙遠且全然未知)
為了製造 the groundhog day of the day I met Ludivine Sagnier 真實感，筆者的 msn 暱稱至今仍保持著「莎妮耶會來我快瘋了我要翹班我要逃兵我要輟學我要去當追星族！！！」之文字敘述。
You started so young Cyrano de Bergerac (1990). You were all of 9 or 10!
People always ask me how I got started. My story is so common that it's a bit tiring. I went to an audition with my sister who wanted to be an actress and they asked me if I wanted to do an audition and they picked me and didn't take her. It happens so many times in the industry. I've talked to a lot of actresses...
So when you were first coming up as an actor in France were you conscious of this great legacy. Like you're next in line after Huppert and Deneuve and well, so many actresses... France makes great ones.
LUDIVINE: NO! I Didn't see myself that concretely... I didn't like myself that much in the beginning. But it's funny because I just shot a movie where I was playing Catherine Deneuve in the 1960s and she is playing me older. It's Beloved from Christophe Honoré who I did Love Songs with. Maybe this time I had the feeling that we are part of the same family, that we have a common story. First she was my mom in 8 Women. Then I was Chiara's sister in Love Songs and Chiara is her daughter. And now Chiara is my daughter in Beloved. Everything is so mixed up!!!
And now I dare think we share the same history. When I started... NO.
It must be so flattering to play a younger version of her. She's one of the greatest movie stars of all time.
It was amazing. To me Catherine Deneuve. Especially in the '60s... [She loses her thread for a moment here with appropriate awe...] All these images! François Truffaut and Jacques Demy. All this New Wave I was fed with as a young actress. It's such a privilege to project myself into this period of time because of course I didn't get the chance to meet them. It was a huge present. It was great, really.
Now in Love Crime you're playing opposite another terrific actress Kristin Scott Thomas and it's very much a two-hander. I was surprised to hear that you had no rehearsal time, really. It was just meet and shoot?
Yes, it was very spontaneous. Maybe she didn't have the time or Alain didn't think it was necessary -- I wish we had but it wasn't really possible.
Love Crime, being a noir of sorts, is very stylized. There wasn't a lot about it that was naturalistic per se. And actually a lot of your movies have been that way: 8 Women, Peter Pan, Water Drops on Burning Rocks... Is this your preference, these heightened acting challenges like musicals or thrillers?
【愛之無盡犯罪】作為一部黑色電影，非常地風格化。一點也不自然。事實上妳很多電影都是走 campy 風：【八美圖】【小飛俠彼得潘】【乾柴烈火】……這是妳個人偏好，這些挑戰遠超出花瓶所該俱備之精湛演技的歌舞片或驚悚片？
Not necessarily. But, you know, what I like is to be able to bounce from genre to genre. [She pauses to consider why she's done so many....]
倒也未必。但你知道的，我喜歡悠遊於各種類型。[她停下來思考為什麼拍了那麼多 campy 風]
People just project my image onto those kind of stories. When I started to shoot Love Crime I had just finished a movie [Lily Sometimes] that -- unfortunately it's not going to be out in the US -- but it's a very down to earth movie. Diane Kruger. We play sisters in the country side: barefoot, very natural, no makeup. Maybe that's not my image -- somehow against my will I have this sophisticated image that doesn't really fit with what I really am. But that's life.
Would you ever do a heavily green screened or f/x driven movie again after Peter Pan.
LUDIVINE: Yes. [She, well, it's confidential. Something is brewing which she won't talk about.]
I actually loved your Tinkerbell. So bratty and the physicality you brought to it was topnotch. Just... well it was so accurate and you don't see that often with Peter Pan.
我超愛妳的奇妙仙子。如此鮮嫩，凱莉米洛整個遜掉。如此精湛，蒂娜菲 (Tina Fey) 整個遜掉。
Thank you. Maybe it struck you because the director had inspirations that were not totally Walt Disney cliches. There's this French artists who had pictured Tinkerbell as this petite brunette -- a bit ghetto style -- she was one of our inspirations.
You mentioned images that came to mind with Deneuve and what directors project on to you ... how about the public? I don't know how often you're recognized here or at home but do people assume things about you from the movies?
After Swimming Pool. [Pause] People were thinking I was the hottest chick on earth and I was going to get undressed every five minutes. I was like, "hmmmm, you might be mistaken." But otherwise... You know, in France, people don't really get harassed when they're famous.
Most but not all of your films have been in France. Are you looking for more international opportunities?
I am trying to diversify, it's true. For example I've asked to be part of an Asian festival jury because I want to be closer to that cinema. I think there's a real emerging cinema in South Korea. I'm a big fan of those movies.
"La Nouvelle Vague" in France. It happened because people didn't have money. They were in a hurry to get their films done and they worked in a state of emergency. And that's the reason why those movies are so fresh and spontaneous and somehow they had a way of resetting reality. Usually the energy comes from rising economies. I'm very curious about that.
I have a manager in the US, and you know, I'm still curious but not the typical "American dream" because what I want first is to have a cohesive career. That's important to me.
Well honestly, French cinema is better for that anyway. When people get older the roles are still great. That's not as often the case here.
按：看看 Marion Cotillard 因為英文很爛成了多恐怖的法國花瓶，君未見【全面啟動】慘不忍賭呀！！！
I'm interested in building something strong and solid. You know in America there's this cult of suddenly getting infatuated with someone. Squeeze him or her to the last drop and then -- pffft -- Away to the bin!!! [Laughter]
I'm more ambitious somehow. I want to stay longer. Life is a marathon and not a sprint.
筆者觀賞【黑天鵝】最大感想就即 Mila Kunis 根本是窮人版 Marion Cotillard 呀！
Shawn Marion 對不起妳很可愛，但妳在 [當好萊塢今最被吹捧過度的導演] 諾蘭電影倩女幽魂實在太欠婊了。
Shut up, just shut up. You had me at the second you stepped on your little worried shoes.
保養得宜 十分性感 1 的丹妮芙，剝削感和滄桑感都不會那麼嚴重。
好怕小 lulu 戲份比重同預告，那就構成今年最大地雷。金髮 (妹) 是上帝的賜禮。

Marion Cotillard & this dude called Yodelice...
為什麼我心目中的神之經典名曲可以被這兩個傢伙搞得這麼難堪？(但還是不及 Miley Cyrus 演唱少年仔的氣味)
怎麼辦我越來越討厭 Marion Cotillard 了！
David BOWIE - Velvet Goldmine
Velvet Goldmine (song)
"Velvet Goldmine" is a song written by David Bowie and recorded during the The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars sessions in 1971.
However, it did not make it to the album and was eventually released as the B-side to the UK rerelease of "Space Oddity" in 1975.
Bowie originally wrote the song as a rather adult description of him making out with another man. Social pressures, combined with an only-half-hearted interest in the material, resulted in Bowie rewriting the song to be slightly more ambiguous.
The song title inspired the name of Velvet Goldmine the film.
Despite being originally only released as a B-side, this song has become very popular amongst fans and has been released on at least one "best of" compilation.
Tori Amos - Smells Like Teen Spirit
That's what I'm talking about interpretation, greatest rendition ever!!!
