    DP – any chance of doing more DP/30 with her ?

    her next 2 movies are made in Europe so unless they
    land over here and make a ton of money i’m guessing
    no more US interviews for at least another year or two.

    is she the French version of Sandra Bullock ?

    Just watched the interview on this site with the actress Cecil De France and couldn’t help but notice the striking resemblance she bears to Marily Monroe. Particularly in the eyes and eyebrows and a few profile shots where she turns her head. There is a resemblance also in the mouth area and the way she occasionaly licked her lips or the way her mouth moved. Her eyes also have a kind of smiley expression to them very similar to Monroe. Put a blond platinum wig on her and I think she would be a perfect recreation and a perfect person to cast if ever a film were made on Monroe’s life. Has anyone else noticed the same thing or was it just me?

    I am glad that somebody thought this film was awesome besides me. It does drag along in parts but I think this was only because we expect there to be more dramatic highlights and Eastwood just lets these three stories unravel in a kind of slow and matter of factly kind of way. Once you accept this, the film becomes more engrossing. It’s a little bit more demanding than his previous films but well worth watching. While I sat in the movie theater watching it, there was a couple behind me who commented to each other, “where is this film going?” They didn’t stick it out and walked out before the film ended but at the end there were a few people who applauded the film. Whatever, this film stayed with me for days afterwards whereas a lot of films don’t do that for me.

    Cecile de France is truly beautiful in Hereafter.
    She has great sex appeal, feminiity, grace and vulnerability. Most American movie stars lack these features. I am looking forward to seeing more of her.

    I just saw “Hereafter” last night (New Year’s Eve!). I have never even heard of Cecil de France before.. She just blew me away!! She a true beauty (in the classic movie star sense..she reminds me of Sophia Loren) and a very good actor. I loved the French speaking scenes in the movie. I could listen to her speak it for hours! Soooo sexy!! I’ll be keeping an eye on her career now. She is a true and unique talent!

  12. Michel Lux says:

    I just want to mention that Cecile De France, altough her name might give the impression, is not a FRENCH but a BELGIAN citizen, born in Namur, South BELGIUM (French speaking region).

    This said, I think she’s a great actor and she was just excellent in this movie!!

  13. Dave Aaron says:

    She is ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING!!! That beautiful voice and face.A natural fabulous woman-and a very good actress. LOVE HER MADLY XXXXXXXXXXXX

  15. Geoff says:

    Oh my! This movie caught my attention in coming attractions months ago. I saw it recently and I was instantly glued to it by the screen presence of Cecile De France. This young lady is quite a talent and an extremely unique one at that. I gotta say that I can’t remember the last time or even ever that I was so taken by an actor. I can’t help but express how unbelievably attractive and impressionable she really is. She possesses a look that is just ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I will certainly follow her career, to whatever country it takes her!!

    I have not seen the movie yet. I just ran accross a picture my cousin had sent me when they were filming Hereafter in Maui. My cousin (rest his soul) was an extra when they were running down the street. I need to see the movie so I can see my cousin in his hour of fame. He passed away shortly after the filming. He had told me that Clint Eastwood is a very very nice person. He also was so excited to meet Cecile De France. God Bless you all…

Tsangari: With my next film, White Knuckles, it comes with a budget — it’s going to be a huge new world for me. As always when I enter into a new thing, don’t you wonder how it’s going to be and how much of yourself you are going to have to sacrifice? The ballet of all of this. I’m already imaging the choreography — not of the camera, but the choreography of actually bringing it to life. It is as fascinating as the shooting itself. I find the producing as exciting as the directing. The one informs the other. There is this producer-director hat that I constantly wear. I’ve been thinking about these early auteurs, like Howard Hawks and John Ford and Preston Sturges—all of these guys basically were hired by the studio, and I doubt they had final cut, and somehow they had films that now we can say they had their signatures.  There are different ways of being creative within the parameters and limitations of production. The only thing you cannot negotiate is stupidity.
Filmmaker: And unfortunately, there is an abundance of that in the world.
Tsangari: This is the only big risk: stupidity. Everything else is completely worked out in the end.
~ Chevalier‘s Rachel Athina Tsangari

“The middle-range movies that I was doing have largely either stopped being made, or they’ve moved to television, now that television is a go-to medium for directors who can’t get work in theatricals, because there are so few theatricals being made. But also with the new miniseries concept, you can tell a long story in detail without having to cram it all into 90 minutes. You don’t have to cut the characters and take out the secondary people. You can actually put them all on a big canvas. And it is a big canvas, because people have bigger screens now, so there’s no aesthetic difference between the way you shoot a movie and the way you shoot a TV show.

“Which is all for the good. But what’s happened in the interim is that theatrical movies being a spectacle business are now either giant blockbuster movies that run three hours—even superhero movies run three hours, they used to run like 58 minutes!—and the others, which are dysfunctional family independent movies or the slob comedy or the kiddie movie, and those are all low-budget. So the middle ground of movies that were about things, they’re just gone. Or else they’re on HBO. Like the Bryan Cranston LBJ movie, which years ago would’ve been made for theaters.

“You’ve got people like Paul Schrader and Walter Hill who can’t get their movies theatrically distributed because there’s no market for it. So they end up going to VOD, and VOD is a model from which no one makes any money, because most of the time, as soon as they get on the site, they’re pirated. So the whole model of the system right now is completely broken. And whether or not anybody’s going to try to fix, or if it even can be fixed, I don’t know. But it’s certainly not the same business that I got into in the ’70s.”
