Marion on Time's Top 10 Movie Performances List

TIME charts the highs and lows of the past year in 50 wide-ranging lists under the title The Top 10 Everything of 2009. Marion Cotillard is featured on the Top 10 Movie Performances List for her performance in ‘Nine‘:

5. Marion Cotillard as Luisa Contini in Nine
The actresses in Nine, Rob Marshall’s musical drama based on Federico Fellini’s , come alive when they sing. Penélope Cruz, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren and (wow) Fergie all lend their solo turns knowing eroticism and high snazz. But Cotillard, as the wife of a desperate filmmaker (Daniel Day-Lewis) is in command of her character whether she’s singing, speaking or just staring darts at her philandering mate. Pain rarely seemed so proud, or hurt so regal, as in Cotillard’s rendition of the ballad “My Husband Makes Movies.” The actress’s showy turn as Edith Piaf in La vie en rose earned her an Oscar. Here, she’s simpler, deeper, better.

Marion to attend Silent Gathering to support Suu Kyi

According to PurePeople Marion Cotillard will attend the following event:

Silent Gathering to support Peace Nobel Prize Aung San Suu Kyi
Tuesday October 6 – From 9 to 11pm on the Square of Paris’ Town Hall

On Jane Birkin’s initiative and with most of the artists who signed the petition launched last July for the trial among which Catherine Deneuve, Michel Piccoli, Charlotte Rampling… With the support of Info Birmanie, FIDH, Amnesty International, SOS Aung San Suu Kyi, Ligue des droits de l’homme, Human Rights Watch

Join us to show your support! Come with a candle…

Aung San Suu Kyi’s trial, Nobel Prize Laureat, started on May 18, 2009, at the Insein Prison in Rangoon. She was charged with violating the terms of her house arrest by letting an American citizen stay at her place for two nights. Yet, Aung San Suu Kyi was the unwilling host of an irrational individual convinced that God sent him to her house.

Her house arrest was to officially end on May 27. John Yettaw’s intrusion in Suu Kyi’s residence therefore constituted a dreamed opportunity for the generals to extend her detention. For the junta, all this is about eliminate any opposition before the elections planned for 2010. These elections are supposed to foster the establishment of a ‘prosperous and controlled’ democracy … ruled by the generals.

On August 11, Aung San Suu Kyi was thereby sentenced to three years in prison with hard labour. The sentence was quickly commuted to 18 months under house detention by Burma’s Senior General Than Shwe in an attempt to give an impression of leniency. The generals reached their goal: to prevent Aung San Suu Kyi from influencing the next year elections’ results and from taking part in the political process.

To dodge the international community, the Court of Rangoon accepted the appeal launched by her lawyers at the beginning of September. The courts will hear the appeal on September 18. However there is no hope to see the Nobel Price Laureate released. The Burmese junta did not invest so many political resources condemning Aung San Suu Kyi to finally free her a few weeks later.

Papers from all over the world have already forgotten this summer events. And the generals only hope for one thing: that we no longer talk about Aung San Suu Kyi. This is the reason why it is urgent that we speak up.

Additional information: “As expected the court rejected her appeal against her 18 month sentence on October 2. A day later, on Saturday she was escorted into surprise talks with Aung Kyi, the ruling military junta’s relations minister. The meeting lasted 45 minutes and was the first since January 2008.”

Marion Cotillard has talked about her strong feelings for Aung San Suu Kyi and her case in a number of interviews.
