After OSS 117, The Artist and The Search, this is the fourth time that Bérenice Bejo plays in a movie of his companion, Michel Hazanavicius. In The fearsome, she has a small role, but it wished to participate in this film on Jean-Luc Godard in which she sees similarities with the man of her life.
It is with the eyes of love, but also a lot of perspective and clarity that Bérénice Bejo looks at Michel Hazanavicius and his work. It must be said that in addition to sharing his life for more than ten years and for having given him two children, the actress often worked with the man of her life. They have toured together in OSS 117 Cairo nest of spies, The Artist (who has still garnered Bérénice Bejo the César for best actress and an Oscar nomination for best supporting role), The Search and finally The dreaded, out today on the screens.
In this biopic about Jean-Luc Godard, plays Michèle Rosier. As she told us at the last Cannes film festival, despite a heavy schedule, she was keen to turn in the new film by Michel Hazanavicius. “I was aware that it was going to explode in coming back to the comedy, and I really want to live it from the inside ” she explains. And then, through the love story between Jean-Luc Godard and Anne Wiazemsky, The dreaded”also refers to that which unites Berenice Bejo and Michel Hazanavicius. Unlike the director, she found it very early points of comparison between the two men: ” He did not realize at the time that he has selected the topic to what extent there were similarities with her life: a film director married to an actress, the confrontation with the critical – at a time when he came out of the failure of The Search... “she analyzes.
This last film, released in 2014, has left a bitter taste in the couple. Presented at Cannes, it had been demolished by the critics, and the public has not saved. Despite this bad experience, Michel Hazanavicius has agreed to return to the competition at the last Festival, and it is together, hand in hand, they have done front. The Formidable has been better received even if it has not received any price.
