Taking a break from catching up on the latest news about Marion Cotillard I bring you today high quality screencaps as well as clips with English subtitles from the 2004 movie ‘A Very Long Engagement‘ (Un long dimanche de fiançailles). Blu-ray quality captures show us all the details of Marion’s costumes, make-up and tears in her emotional final scene. Marion played the supporting part of the Corsican prostitute Tina Lombardi and deservedly won a César for her performance.

Before the Trailer have a picture of Marion Cotillard on the set of ‘Contagion‘. They say this was for a scene based in WHO in Geneva, Switzerland but it was shot in Chicago. These scenes were filmed at the end of October. Marion Cotillard has since finished filming her scenes for the movie.
Marion Cotillard already mentioned Pierre Rabhi in her interview about ecology with Elle last year – last Tuesday, she now attended a press conference in Paris where the Fondation Pierre Rabhi was presented. There was already a tweet about it but it wasn’t until today when L’Express published a picture and an interview with Pierre Rabhi that we know more about it. Listen to the full press conference here.

The Fondation Pierre Rabhi was created this year to support Acro-Ecology projects for sustainable food self-sufficiency worldwide and to get involved in safety, food safety and autonomy of people. There are 7 members Jean-Paul Capitani, Maurice Freund, Charles Kobloukoff, François Lemarchand, la Princesse de Polignac, Jacques Rocher and Michel Valentin. Farmer, philosopher and writer Pierre Rabhi is its honorary president. The foundation coordinates, among other things, a group of agro-ecologists without borders who then mobilize people with specific skills for the projects around the world, including Burkina Faso, Morocco, Mali and Europe.

Last Tuesday evening ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ became officially the most successful French movie in France of the year – dethroning Camping 2. According to today’s Le Figaro 4.7 million people have now seen it! This is only one month after its release and despite somewhat mixed reviews and a length of 2h40 minutes. The newspaper says that the movie has become a social phenomenon and have a psychoanalyst / philosopher try explain its success. There’s also a new interview with writer/director Guillaume Canet where he says he’s surprised by the huge success.
Interestingly, when it comes to all movie releases in France ‘Inception‘ (also with Marion Cotillard) is currently holding the record with over 4.9 million entries – but it looks like ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ will beat it soon. Its distributor Europa Corp expects that 5.5 million people will have seen it by the end of the year. The only other movie to maybe become the most successful movie in France of 2010 is Harry Potter which opens this week. But in any case it’s definitely the most successful French movie of 2010! Congratulations!
As regards international release dates there are no details yet but they’re previewing it in The Netherlands – thanks Nadine.
Here are scans of some extra stills featured in the soundtrack:
