Re: FW: Isou dies (+ Michel Serrault)
- Isidore Isou's obit in "Libération" today is only a few lines long and
does not mention his film work (maybe there'll be a longer one in the
future, who knows?). "Libé" did two film-related front pages these
days, with long articles inside: Bergman yesterday (with a quite
critical appraisal of his oeuvre) and Antonioni today.
For those who read French, the Bergman dossier includes an interview
with André Téchiné and another with Olivier Assayas. There's also a
very funny account of Woody Allen and Bergman's meeting by Liv Ullmann :
Another loss in French cinema (actually, it was the first of the série
noire): Michel Serrault, a very popular and talented actor. His roles
in Mocky's films are the first that come my mind (L'ibis rouge, Le
miraculé, Bonsoir, A mort l'arbitre...), but of course he's worked
with a lot of directors in his long career: Guitry, Chabrol, Claude
Sautet (Nelly et monsieur Arnaud), Claude Miller (Garde à vue)... And
he's a done a lot of silly films in the 60's.
