Marion Cotillard, or actually her film ‘La Vie en Rose’, certainly is making the festival round-up. The Philadelphia Film Festival, running from April 5 – 18, is showing it on April 12 at 7.00 pm and on April 13 at 2.15 pm. See the film’s page on their website here. And the film’s English official site has been set up – though it’s not yet complete.
But also last year’s French film Fair Play also starring Marion will be shown there. Here’s a review:
Fair Play assumes that life is a game and succeeds to startling effect in proving that, in corporate France, the converse is true, as well. In the final canyoneering (you know, for fraternité) scene, pain is a truth serum that threatens to destroy the rules and shatter the boundary between sport and real life. The lousy subtitles are the only unintentional addition to the constant tension — struggling to figure out what the hell is going on and read white subtitles against a waterfall while Charles (Eric Savin) tries to intimidate Nicole (Marion Cotillard) into withdrawing her sexual harassment suit isn’t nearly as rewarding as watching Alex welt his boss with a racquetball after proclaiming he’s slept with his wife in an attempt to keep his job.
Showtimes: Wed., April 11, 2:30 p.m., Ritz East, 125 S. Second St.; Fri., April 13, 2:30 p.m., The Bridge: Cinema DeLuxe, 4012 Walnut St.; Mon., April 16, 7:15 p.m., Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St.
The San Francisco Film Festival is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The fest, which runs April 26 – May 10, will screen 200 films from 54 countries and present three world premieres. It has now been announced that “the official closer will be another costume drama, current French b.o. smash “La Vie en Rose” with Marion Cotillard as tragic chanteuse Edith Piaf.” This will mark the film’s West Coast Premiere in the United States. See the festival’s page on the film here.
‘La Vie en Rose‘ will be shown at the AFI Dallas International Film Festival 2007 (March 22 – April 1) tomorrow, Wednesday, March 28 at 7.15 pm. (ticketx) No word on whether Marion Cotillard will attend or not. However, I doubt she’ll be there since she’s expected to attend the UK premiere at the Rendez-vous with French Cinema on Thursday.
Here some dates when the film will be released in theatres around the world:
Sweden, Norway, Finland: March 30, 2007
Denmark: April 13, 2007
Argentina: May 10, 2007
UK: June 22, 2007
Contrary to previous reports and the IMDb listing, Marion Cotillard is not part of the cast for the huge French project about Jacques Mesrine (the 2 films ‘L’ Ennemi public n° 1′ and ‘Death Instinct’). At the Canadian premiere of ‘La Môme’ last week (March 13) she said in an interview with a Canadian newspaper:
“I was approached but I am not in the film. I have no project coming up at the moment”
Marion Cotillard attended the premiere of ‘La Vie en Rose’ (‘La Môme’) in The Netherlands on March 6. I’ve added 2 pictures – if you have more could you please send them in? I’ve also added a photoshoot session of Marion Cotillard on the set of ‘La Môme’ sent in by Mariana. Some of them you may recognize from the recent ‘Premiere’ magazine issue. You need to be registered & logged in to view the pictures.
‘Lisa’ is quite a rare film. I found a DVD on Japanese amazon and am therefore happy to be able to see Marion Cotillard’s magnificent performance in this. Here the screencaptures:
After New York also London is holding the A Rendez-Vous with French Cinema event from March 29 – April 1, 2007. Opening film is again ‘La Vie en Rose’. Screenings: Thursday, March 29 (invitation only) and Saturday, March 31 at 12.00 (Ticket bookings). The great thing about this event is that the French filmmakers and actors who will be accompanying their films, will be present at a Q&A session at the end of the screenings. It takes place at one of London’s most prestigious cinemas, the Curzon Mayfair.
‘A Good Year’ – Marion’s first major role in an English-speaking film – was released on Reg 1 DVD on February 27. Upcoming DVD releases include Germany (April 23) and English Region 2 (May 7). Here the screencaptures:
