Robert Pattinson Interview with Diaro de Noticia + Scan   Leave a comment

Translation:

When you read the ‘Cosmopolis’ script, did you think it was going to be a science fiction adventure or, the opposite, an almost realistic film?
To be honest, I didn’t think it would be a realistic movie. What really interested me was the lyricism of the script, a combination between poetry and fun… Usually, when I read a script, it’s possible for me to visualize the movie. It wasn’t like that with Cosmopolis: it was like I could only hear. Did that possibility of “hearing” came from the importance of the dialogue? Yes, because the dialogue surprised me even by the unique style. Starting by the structure of the pages: I could instantly see long monologues, which are rare in movies. At the same time it is incredibly easy to read: I think I read it in 40 minutes…

The book was written a long time before the financial crisis from 2008 and, now, it almost seems like a piece of news from today.
Even the pie on the face episode with Rupert Murdoch looks like a “prediction” from Cosmopolis

By knowing that, did you feel like you’re portraying the reality of the present days?
As strange as it seems, I didn’t. I felt that it was a movie about the wish to be free There are people that see it as a nihilist story, about the neglect of everything, but I never saw Eric Packer’s character that way. To me, he’s someone desperately trying to find something and… he can’t.

Why, is money not enough?
Yes. In any case, to him, money is something that doesn’t mean anything. I should say that the stock market can be anything to mean, it doesn’t make any sense. For example, when we read the news about Facebook: 104 billion dollars? How can that be real?

Before filming Cosmopolis, were you familiar with Cronenberg’s work?
Yes, I had seen a lot of his movies. I had a poster of Scanners in my room.

Maybe we can say that Cosmopolis brings back one of the main questions from his previous movies. What is reality?
There is one scene, during a riot, where Eric says to the woman, that conversations between “normal” people are too strange… And every time he tries to behave like a human being, he feels like an alien. Would it be that reality is just to take some antidepressants and live… happy?

How is it for an actor to prepare for a character like this?
I started by the usual ways and that didn’t work.

What usual ways?
Where does the character come from? What are his motivations to behave like that? All of the sudden, nothing of this makes sense for Eric. There’s a scene (which is in the book too) that, to me, was the key point of everything. It’s the moment where Eric, with his “chief of theory” talk about the Nasdaq building: to them, it looks like a church.

And what happens in a church like that?
To them, they spend the time crating transactions, everything happens as if they’d live in the future, no need to deal with the present: the future is infinite, the present is astounding.

How do you think that people will see Eric? Will they be sympathetic? Will they hate him?
To be honest, I don’t know. The first reactions have been really good, but I don’t know. When I watched the movie, I felt that, in the end, Eric is just a really sad character. What is strange is that if we had to deal with him, Eric would be someone that no one would care about.

This sadness is probably a recurring theme with Cronenberg…
Definitely, because they are not stories that end when we get to the end. There’s always some unreachable happiness, that leaves discomfort… I like that.

*SCAN* Robert Pattinson’s Interview in Film3Sixty Magazine   3 comments

Transcript by us

One on One – Robert Pattinson

Best known for his portrayal of brooding teen vampire Edward Cullen in the phenomenally succesful Twilight Saga films Robert Pattinson turns serial seducer in his new film Bel Ami. In this adpation of Guy de Maupassant’s classic tale he charms the likes of Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. Some chaps have all the luck.

Film3Sixty: Your character in Bel Ami, Georges DuRoy, is he an amoral man?
Robert Pattinson: He just doesn’t have a conscience. He’s content to do nothing and thinks everything should just be given to him. But if someone slights him, or directs any insult at him, the most overhelming energy grabs him and he turns into this absolute devil. It’s like in Giant, when (James Dean) builds the entire empire to say ‘F-you’, he’s exactly like that but without any redeeming characteristics. The whole story is these people trying to beat him down into remorse, and just as he’s about to touch it, something good happens to him again.

More after the jump!

First Bel Ami Reviews – Total Film and Sight and Sound magazine   10 comments

First Bel Ami reviews are here

Total Film

From Sight and Sound Magazine (Transcription)

Guy de Maupassant’s second novel, about an unprincipled cad who rises in Belle Epoque Parisian society using women as stepping stones, has often been adapted for the screen, most famously by Albert Lewin as The Private Affairs of Bel Ami in 1947, with George Sanders in the title role. Lewin, a cultured Francophile, did a handsome if over-wordy job, but at 41 Sanders was too old for the role, and the Hollywood censors, much to Lewin’s annoyance, imposed a moralistic ending in which the cad meets his deserts in a fatal duel. Hard to think of anything more out of keeping with Maupassant’s novel, which exudes the urbane cynicism for which the writer was famous.

The new version has no truck with such sanctimony. Rachel Bennette’s script offers a faithful rendition of the original, up to and including the ending with Georges Duroy (the amorously ambitious ‘Bel Ami’ of the title) relishing his triumph over the shallow, corrupt society that he at once despises and personifies. Although it is well-grounded in its period – Budapest locations convincingly impersonate 1890s Paris, and rampant French colonialism in North Africa provides a murky political backdrop – the film’s themes feel remarkably topical. An Arab country is invaded for ostensibly high-minded motives, political parties denounce each other’s policies while surreptiously adopting them, the press attacks the corruption from which it profits, and a young man of no discernable talent attains celebrity thanks to a pretty face and a plausible manner.

Joint directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, here making their feature debut, are best known for their work with Cheek by Jowl, the avant garde theatre company they founded in 1981. If Bel Ami occasionally feels airless and overly art-directed that may partly reflect the period it’s set in, but also the directors’ over indulgence in facial close-ups. It’s almost as though they didn’t trust their actors to express emotions in mid-shot – the last thing you’d expect from theatre directors. This does Robert Pattinson as Bel Ami no favours, since in close up his face tends to lapse into the bovine, but at further remove he gives an alert amusedly insinuating performance. A scene where he plays tap with his soon-to-be lover Clothilde (Christina Ricci, appealingly kittenish) and her little daughter brings out the boyish charm that stands him in good stead with the Parisian ladies. Even so he is outpaced in the acting stakes by his trio of lovers, Ricci, Uma Thurman as his mentor and subsequently his wife, and Kristin Scott Thomas, touchingly vulnerable as his boss’s wife. As Thurman’s Madeleine notes, unwittingly setting Georges on his unscrupulous path to the top
