    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 ?

    Sanj is the funniest communication-barrier poster since Chucky in Jersey.

    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

    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…

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”

I feel strongly connected to young cinephile culture. The thing about filmmaking—and cinephilia—is that you can’t keep hanging out with your own age group as you get older. They drop off, move somewhere. You can’t put together a crew of sixty-somethings. It’s the same for cinephilia: my original set of cinephile friends are watching DVDs at home or delving into 1958 episodes of ‘Gunsmoke,’ something like that. The people who are out there tend to be young, and I happen to be doing the same thing still, so it’s natural that I move in their circles.

In terms of the filmmaking, there was a gear shift: my first movies focused on people around my age, and I followed them for three films. Until The Unspeakable Act, I was using the same actors, not because of an affinity for people at a specific age, but because of my affinity for the actors. I like to work with actors a second time, especially if I don’t feel confident casting a new film. But The Unspeakable Act was a different script, and I had to cast all new people. Even for the older roles, I couldn’t get the people I’d worked with before. But when it was over, the same thing happened: I wanted to work with Tallie again in the worst way, and I started the process all over again.

I think Rohmer did something similar around the time of Perceval and Catherine de HeilbronnHe developed new groups of people that he liked to work with. These gear shifts are natural. Even if you want to follow certain actors to the end of their life (which I kind of do) the variety of ideas that you generate makes it necessary to change. And once you’ve made the change, you’ve got all these new people around.”
