Amazon France also synopsis
Vivian Parker, a star sublime and lofty, met Louis at a film festival. Without knowing why, she gives him her phone number. So began a passion that unites two people who disagree about everything. Caught up in the frenzy of their irrational love, the lovers will discover little by little, before tearing. With this novel in two voices, by turns moving, sensual, dark and cruel, Catherine Breillat depicts a tragic love story, a story of mutual devouring.
In an interview she said, â€œI wrote it precisely and uniquely for Naomi Campbell. She came to see me, she wanted to work with me. She came, she sat, I said “Okay, I make all my actors do screen tests. So even if your image is worth a lot of money, there’s no point in us working together if it’s going to be ridiculous.”
Catherine Breillat is next going to take on Sleeping Beauty. Sleeping Beauty will be in the same vain as her latest project Bluebeard. So the effort of creating something of this nature is something welcoming from the director. We would also like some bigger outfits to take up her films.
