    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…

Julian Schnabel: Years ago, I was down there with my cousin’s wife Corky. She was wild — she wore makeup on her legs, and she had a streak in her hair like Yvonne De Carlo in “The Munsters.” She liked to paint. I had overalls on with just a T-shirt and looked like whatever. We were trying to buy a bunch of supplies with my cousin Jesse’s credit card. They looked at the credit card, and then they looked at us and thought maybe we stole the card, so they called Jesse up. He was a doctor who became the head of trauma at St. Vincent’s. They said, “There’s somebody here with this credit card and we want to know if it belongs to you.”

He said, “Well, does the woman have dyed blonde hair and fake eyelashes and look like she stepped out of the backstage of some kind of silent movie, and is she with some guy who has wild hair and is kind of dressed like a bum?”

“Yeah, that’s them.”

“Yeah, that’s my cousin and my wife. It’s okay, they can charge it on my card.”

MB Cool. I was really interested in the aerial photography from Enter the Void and how one could understand that conceptually as a POV, while in fact it’s more of an objective view of the city where the story takes place. So it’s an objective and subjective camera at the same time. I know that you’re interested in Kubrick. We’ve talked about that in the past because it’s something that you and I have in common—

GN You’re obsessed with Kubrick, too.

MB Does he still occupy your mind or was he more of an early influence?

GN He was more of an early influence. Kubrick has been my idol my whole life, my own “god.” I was six or seven years old when I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey, and I never felt such cinematic ecstasy. Maybe that’s what brought me to direct movies, to try to compete with that “wizard of Oz” behind the film. So then, years later, I tried to do something in that direction, like many other directors tried to do their own, you know, homage or remake or parody or whatever of 2001. I don’t know if you ever had that movie in mind for your own projects. But in my case, I don’t think about 2001 anymore now. That film was my first “trip” ever. And then I tried my best to reproduce on screen what some drug trips are like. But it’s very hard. For sure, moving images are a better medium than words, but it’s still very far from the real experience. I read that Kubrick said about Lynch’s Eraserhead, that he wished he had made that movie because it was the film he had seen that came closest to the language of nightmares.
