Marion Cotillard has confessed working with her director partner Guillaume Canet can sometimes be heaven, but sometimes be “hell”.

The Oscar-winning actress stars in new crime thriller Blood Ties, which Guillaume wrote and directed. The couple have been together since 2007 and have a two-year-old son.

Marion revealed: “The difficulty of having your partner working on a set, it’s hard to explain.

“I really want him to be happy with everything he wants, and sometimes when it doesn’t work… I’m not [just] talking about me acting, I would do anything to give him what he wants, but the general things that happen on set, when he’s not happy, it touches me deeply.

“But it’s really, really, interesting to be in the life of someone who’s in the creative process. Even though sometimes it’s really hard to live, sometimes it’s heaven and sometimes it’s hell.”

But Marion, who has been directed by Guillaume before, as well as acted opposite him, revealed she does her best to support him.

She said: “I’m being supportive because this creative process is very intense. You really open your mind and your heart and your soul to what you’re going to give your actors and your crew and eventually the audience. It’s really interesting to watch closely, and I’ve always been very impressed to watch him working.”

Blood Ties also stars Clive Owen, James Caan, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Billy Crudup and Matthias Schoenaerts.

After exclusively bringing the news that Marion Cotillard would lead the next drama from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, we managed to catch up with the duo to find out where, production-wise, they find themselves, and what any plans might be for a release. One need only look at previous productions to see they’re very secretive, but we were able to secure a few details.

Deux Jours, Une Nuit (Two Days, One Night), the Belgian duo’s follow-up to The Kid with a Bike, has wrapped and is headed to the editing room today. Shot entirely in the Walloon region of Belgium, near the brother’s hometown of Seraing, Cotillard plays Sandra, a young woman who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues that they must give up their bonuses in order for her to keep her job. Fabrizio Rongione, a Dardenne regular after Rosetta, The Child and The Kid With a Bike, plays Sandra’s husband in the social drama.

We asked the filmmakers what it was like working with the actress, to which Luc Dardenne quickly replied, “…it was formidable”; he further described her performance as “strong and one of excellence.” Cotillard, however, will have to wait until the premiere to see her work onscreen, as the filmmakers said nobody working on the project was allowed to watch dailies.

When asked when we could expect the premiere, the filmmakers replied, “If the film is selected for Cannes, we’ll premiere it at the festival. If it’s not selected, we don’t know. We’ll see!” While they play coy, considering nearly all of their films have premiered at France’s prestigious festival, it’s a safe bet we’ll see them return next May. While the Dardennes prepare their film for a premiere and eventual U.S. release (via Sundance Selects), Cotillard is off to shoot her role as Lady Macbeth, opposite Michael Fassbender, in the Justin Kurzel-directed reprisal of Shakespeare‘s tale.

What: Blood Ties, French director Guillaume Canet’s fourth feature film about a pair of brothers (played by Billy Crudup and Clive Owen) — one a cop, the other a criminal — in 1970’s New York. Marion Cotillard plays the mother of Chris’s (Owen) children, who’s trying to run her own brothel.

When: Sept. 10, 10:45 a.m.

Who: Director Guillaume Canet, producer Alain Attal, Marion Cotillard

1. Canet, who has long been fascinated with the 1970’s, has always wanted to set one of his films during this period in New York.
“I grew up with … the cinema of the 1970’s in the U.S. Like Sam Peckinpah and Jerry Schatzberg,” said the Tell No One director, seated beside his real-life partner, Cotillard. “I’ve always been very excited about making a movie of that genre.”

2. Canet and Cotillard admit there are ups and downs to being in a working and personal relationship.
The couple, who have been together for several years and have a child, talked at length about the difficulties of both living and work together. “I trust Guillaume 200 per cent,” said Cotillard. “I would do anything for him to get what he wants. When he’s not happy, it touches me deeply. But it’s interesting to be in the life of someone who’s in the creative process. Even though it’s sometimes really hard to live, sometimes it’s heaven and sometimes it’s hell. But I’m supportive because I know this creative process is really intense.”

3. Don’t ask the La Vie en Rose actress about her personal life, even if you disguise it as a question about Parisians being more romantic.
When a journalist asked how the couple keeps the romance alive at home since France is the most romantic country in the world, Cotillard gracefully responded, “I cannot answer this question. We never talk about our personal life.” Canet quickly turned to the actress and said, “You can just say I’m very romantic at home, too.”

4. Cotillard accepted the role partly because she was looking for a film set in the 1970’s, since she’s acted in films from virtually every other period in recent history.
“I was very excited to explore this period because I had explored the 20s, 40s, 50s, 60s, even the 80s, but never the 70s,” said Cotillard, to which Canet joked, “This is why I picked the 70s, to make sure she would accept.” The actress, smiling, replied, “No, I would have accepted anything,” before adding, “There is a special groove to the 70s and I loved working on the very specific body language that really comes with what they wore and the period’s time and the way people wanted to set themselves free of the constrictions that they had lived in for years.”

5. Cotillard, who dons an Italian accent in the film, had no trouble picking up Polish for a role, but failed miserably at learning Italian.
Cotillard had to learn some Polish for her work in the film The Immigrant, but says she simply couldn’t pick up Italian for Blood Ties (even though it was all her idea!) “I wanted to learn a little bit of Italian, but I failed,” said Cotillard. “It was kind of dramatic for me, but I didn’t have to speak Italian in the movie so it was’t like a major public failure … The amount of time it took me to learn four lines in Italian was the same amount of time it took me to learn 20 pages in Polish. I mean, I am really not good at Italian.”
