‘Nine’ will be Birthday Special Gala Screening in Berlin
3 years after getting international recognition when ‘La Vie en Rose‘ celebrated its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, Marion Cotillard could actually come back to Germany. Yesterday, the festival announced their line-up for the “Berlin Special” Gala screenings at the upcoming 60th Berlin International Film Festival. ‘Nine‘ is one of them – and it will actually be the festival’s Birthday Special screening ahead of its theatrical release in Germany. Upon inquiry by Welt Online they could not yet confirm any of the star’s appearances, though. Let’s hope Marion will attend!
On a sidenote, our site has been listed on The Fan Carpt and please stay tuned for our in-depth coverage of Marion’s Critics Choice and Golden Globe Award appearances. Thank you for your patience
HQ Tck Tck Tck Photo & Absence
Before I leave for my vacation I uploaded a HQ version of Marion’s portrait for the Tck Tck Tck Time for Climate Change Campaign. We previously only had a very small version of it.
While I’m gone my dear friend Mariana will look after the site seeing as Marion is so busy right now.
New Layout for the summer
After over 7 months a new layout was more than needed. The talented Natalie (who already designed the header for our second site layout) designed this timeless and elegant layout based on the Paris Lady Dior Print Campaign a while ago and finally I got round to code it for the site. I hope you are as excited as I am about the new look!
The site looks perfect in a Firefox browser but should work fine with others too. If you encounter problems though please let me know, thanks!
Additionally to the new layout the sidebar has (finally) been updated with all the new Marion Cotillard projects and some important dates for the upcoming 2 months!

Magnifique Marion Cotillard is Site of the Month over at James McAvoy Source. Thanks a lot!
New Video Archive is growing
I’ve diligently transferred all the existing video clips of Marion at public appearances from the old to the new archive – bringing the total count in the new archive to 110. I’ve also added 4 new clips: 2006 Cannes Festival, 2007 Hollywood Awards Interview (by a rather ignorant reporter…) and 2009 Oscars Backstage & Red Carpet.
And here’s the transcript of what Marion said to Kate Winslet during the recent Oscar ceremony:
Kate Winslet, with each new role you continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Your brilliant performance in “The Reader” encompasses all the qualities that have always drawn us to you: passion, vulnerability and extraordinary depth. As your character move through time, love and the most dire of circumstances we, as your audience Kate, never lose a connection to you. This is yet another unforgettable portrait from one of our most gifted actresses and one of our most inspiring. Thank you!
And something cute I found online:
Fresh off her emotional acceptance speech, best actress Oscar winner Kate Winslet was still shaking when she came backstage.
“Oh my God. Oh my god. Did I make any sense?” she asked presenter Marion Cotillard.
“Totally. Don’t worry,” Cotillard, last year’s winner, told her.
“I’ve got to phone my kids,” Winslet, still shaking, said as she headed toward a hallway.

Video Archive – Movie Trailers
I transferred all the movie trailers & clips of projects with Marion Cotillard from the old video archive and added also a few more, all I could find, actually. Among them a rare trailer for “Lisa“. There are now also French trailers for “A Good Year” and “Big Fish” as she provided her voice for the French versions as well. I also added a few trailers with either English audio or subtitles, e.g. for “Mary” or “Burnt Out“. In addition, I added some DVD Extras for “Jeux d’enfants“, “Taxi 2“, “La Boîte Noire” and “Les Jolies Choses“. There are now a total of 63 videos in the new archive – more to come!
