The actress presented Samuel Benchetrit’s new film at Cannes.
Vanessa Paradis is inextricably linked to Cannes. His interpretation of Whirlwind of life on the stage of the Grand Théâtre Lumière in 1995 in homage to the President of the jury Jeanne Moreau is one of the unforgettable moments of the festival for a long time to come. Member of the jury chaired by George Miller in 2016, she was the same year on the bill for Frost by Sharunas Bartas presented at the Directors’ Fortnight before entering competition in 2018 with A knife in the heart by Yann Gonzales. This year she is back with This music doesn’t play for anyone, a choral film where the poetic and burlesque pen of Samuel Benchetrit works wonders. Vanessa Paradis plays there … a stuttering hairdresser totally transfigured by the grace of the theater which she practices as an amateur by playing Simone de Beauvoir in a musical comedy centered on her couple with Jean-Paul Sartre! An offbeat composition role in which she excels and in which the pleasure she takes in interpreting it crosses the screen. We gathered his confidences just before the presentation of the film out of competition.
