Venus RoPo

I tweeted some reactions to Roman Polanski‘s Venus In Fur, which we all saw this morning, as I sat in the Salle de Presse waiting for Polanski, costars Emmanuelle Seigner and Mathieu Almaric, composer Alexandre Desplat and the Venus producers to walk in and answer questions. I shot some half=decent video but I haven’t loaded it yet. But I had to split early in order to pack for the airport, which I’ve now done. My bus leaves in about an hour.

    If “Venus” is as “minor” as “Death and the Maiden” then we’re all in for a treat, as that is one the director’s purest and more forceful films, which, for Polanski, is really saying something.

    Cool screenshots of your tweets!

    Looking forward to seeing this – curious to see how Seigneur appropriates the role that Nina Arianda inhabited so fantastically. Death and the Maiden was great, I enjoy it when Polanski employs some restraint.

    As an aside, Jeff, It’s Mathieu Amalric, not Almaric.

    With posts like this (not that there’s anything wrong with it), you can’t really be surprised when people don’t talk about your online “column” anymore, can you?

    Anyway, looking forward to this. And I wouldn’t really consider D&tM “minor” (I’m making the joke in my head, too) Polanski. For me, that would be Oliver Twist or Carnage (maybe even Ninth Gate, although that’s a little too much fun in a nutty way for me to not bump it up at least a rung).

    Anyone know the status of his Dreyfus affair project? He’s done two chamber pieces in a row. Can he be allowed to get the big train set out now?

    I figured Amalric would eventually play Polanski in a biopic; didn’t expect “RoPo” to be the actual one to make it though…
