Is Annette more of a Sparks or Leos Carax movie?

“You inhabit the cinema planet”said Isabelle Huppert to Cate Blanchett at the time of giving him the César of honor, a few days after his Goya, won in Spain from the hands of Pedro Almodovar. Particularly moved, the Australian actress thanked the public and had a thought for the conflict which strikes Ukraine. His speech can be seen in full here.

"It's a whole world that cried Gaspard" : Xavier Dolan's moving tribute to Gaspard Ulliel at the César 2022
Cesar 2022/Canal + ceremony

“It’s a whole world who mourned Gaspard.” Xavier Dolan paid a poignant tribute to Gaspard Ulliel, five years after having received in his place his César for best actor for Just the end of the world. Held on a shoot, the actor had asked his director, in the event of victory, to read a letter on stage … in which he praised him. A funny moment tragically echoed in this new letter, where Dolan told of their friendship. His speech, to see here in fullthen opened the equally sad video “In Memoriam”saluting the memory of the film personalities who died this year.
