The Caro-Jeunet Exhibit now to be at the Lyon Cinema and Miniatures Museum

The outstanding Caro-Jeunet exhibit at the Halle Saint Pierre has come to an end after 10 months. Many thanks to Martine Lusardi and her collaborators.
Now it will be opening to the public at the superb Cinema and Miniatures Museum in Lyon, at 60 rue Saint Jean, on October 13, a few days before the Lumière festival where Delicatessen will be screened three times.

Amelie had inspired many artists

I knew that Amelie had inspired many artists, but I didn’t realise how many! While doing research on Pinterest I came across these illustrations! Among

Caro/Jeunet exhibit

As announced, there will be a Caro/Jeunet exhibit at the Halle St Pierre in Montmartre, beginning on September 7. Often cinema exhibits focus mainly on writing. But ours will be entirely visual, including all the emblematic items from our films, costumes, storyboards, research drawings, models, photos from the shooting, etc…

The Halle Saint Pierre was an obvious choice. An unpretentious museum of popular art, located just a few meters from where Nino Quincampoix chased Amélie in the gardens of the Sacré Cœur…

It was at Halle Saint Pierre that I discovered Jephan de Villiers, Ronan-Jim Sévellec, Charles Matton, Gilbert Peyre, where I admired the works of Giger, spiritual guide of my “Alien”… artists that I collect and who bridge the gap between “Singular” art and our films, which are no less, at least I hope… singular.

Miss Bismuth is gone

Mireille MOSSE has joined Dr. Krank in the Paradise of Lost Children…

She acted mainly in the theatre and appeared in Patrice Leconte’s La Fille sur le pont.
Mireille, you’ve always been larger than life to me.

Clip Gauvain Sers

Gauvain Sers is a young singer from the Creuse region of France. He wears a cap in beige ribbed velvet. That’s his style. He sings before Renaud and last Saturday at the Bastille, he finished his concert with an unpublished song that paid homage to the famous French singer. It gave me goose bumps! This guy can write.

As he mentions “Amelie” in his song, how could I refuse to make his music video? Aline Bonetto for the set, Thomas Hardmeyer for the lighting, Nathalie Tissier for make-up, a new costume designer, Fabienne Katany, and hairstylist, Cicci. Julien Lecat for the editing and making off, produced by Jerome Denis … and of course Christophe Vassort, my faithful assistant. Alexia Giordano in the role of “Elle” … Jean-Pierre Daroussin and Gérard Darmon as guest stars! A big thanks to them all…

Two snails in Auvergne

The “Deux escargots” set off for the opening ceremony of the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival. Here I am, on the stage with Romain Segaud, co-director and animator, and Julien Lecat, who took care of the editing and recorded the 35 actors. In the photo projected above us is the Clermont-Ferrand jury in 1983, under the leadership of President Henri Alekan, with Marie-Claude Treihou, Ted Benoit, Sophie Taticheff, Florence Giorgetti, a bookseller from Clermont, and yours truly, a few years younger…
