The it girl we met from the French cinema a few days ago in Athens:
The French actress Clémence Poésy, which is 29-year-old former model was found in Greece in the Francophone Film Festival. We wanted to talk with her right away:
How is it to be a reviewer in film festivals:
It was not the first time I was on a jury. The interest in being a judge on something, is the discovery of small things, the details would not have understood otherwise. It’s a situation that helps you explore your curiosity. And of course you should enjoy it, as long as possible because, as an actor, not something you do every day.
When I like a film do not see it from the perspective of the actor. When you love something, I like it because your eyes are good. It has nothing to do with what job you do. And of course do not look only hypocritical but also deepens the other in history. I do not like to compare the work of others how to do it myself.
For what movies she likes to do:
The most beautiful thing in the movies is the variety that you get to do otherwise, between them, things. For example, after enjoying a large production budget to make something smaller or underground. If I make a film in French, the next I want to be in English. It’s nice to switch. You do the stagnation.
For the French cinema today:
There is a great cinematic tradition in France. We are lucky, like French, which the state supports and keeps the movie’s existence possible. The movie is an industry, not just art. He wants a lot of money to make a film and the ministry helps in any way. It’s something I’m proud and should protect it, because times are tough because of the economic crisis. Paris is the city with more movies per square meter. The movies usually are full and always listen to a new film coming out. It seems perfectly reasonable success of intact (Les Intouchables) and the Artist are circulating after 300, for example, movies in one year it will certainly be some who would like more in other countries.
For the relationship with the song:
I’m not a singer. I am another Frenchwoman whispering. What we usually do French women. Miles Kane with our collaboration was arranged very quickly. We had many common acquaintances from when I lived in London and asked me to sing something for his album. Miles is a big fan of Serge Gkensmpourgk and wanted to make a similar partnership as one that had done Gkensmpourgk with Jane Birkin in the 70s.
For what it would be if there was an actor:
If I were not an actor I want to be a photographer. I like to find little things you do not watch and photograph them. Much I admire people who know what it is to take a picture at the right lighting. I think this is a gift. Do you see something and know how to come out fantastic with the right lighting. Also another job that I loved to do one day, would be to choose the photo that will be on the covers of books. This is the job of my dreams.
Whether to deal with the director:
I hope that sometime in the future I will make a movie. I dream when I have amassed tremendous ideas and with the help of my friends will present a really nice story in the world. I think it’s most cool about being a director than an actor. My father is a director and I like having this thing, what makes you want to share things that you have in mind with the world.
