Why we thought so much about Harry Potter in front of Tenet
“Before staging The Goblet of Fire, I didn’t know anything about this kind of movies, explained the filmmaker. I had never shot blockbusters full of digital special effects and this experience taught me a lot. After doing three projects in the United States, I had the opportunity to come back to an English production, but on an American scale. I was able to shape the story as I saw fit, put quite personal things into it, for the simple reason that British schools and their pupils hold no secrets from me. It’s crazy to think that I was the first Englishman to make a film Harry potter. And as weird as it sounds, despite the dragons and spells, I really felt at home. (…) Even in adults, there was this very particular energy. I have a very strong memory of the scenes with Alan Rickman, in which he was brilliantly smelly with the students. I had the pleasure of meeting my friend Brendan Gleeson, with whom I had a lot of fun creating the character of Mad Eye Moody. But one of the sequences that struck me the most was the arrival of French students at Hogwarts for the Triwizard Tournament. To have seen the astonished looks of these English boys who had no idea that such sexy creatures could exist is priceless. And then, we must nevertheless remember that I made this good old Robert Pattinson debut… A charming boy who never fails to point out that The Goblet of Fire launched his career. (Laughs.) I’m very proud of his death in the movie. This story, which until now was just a delicious cup of ice cream with lots of whipped cream and different flavors, ended suddenly on an infinitely dark and tragic note. A dramatic current had crept into the saga. “
