Festival glamor doesn’t make you arrogant
Cannes (EFE).— With 25 years and a solid career under construction, Timothée Chalamet presents “The French Dispatch” at Cannes and has “Dune” awaiting its premiere, but the glamor of the festivals doesn’t let him forget the hardships Goes back to last year and hope that somehow art and cinema will help people.
At the gala screening of “The French Dispatch” in Cannes, “I feel happy and grateful,” says the actor, who tries to control himself and is “not too cocky”, because “in the end, it There are films, but I hope they can help people in some way, that art can help people face their problems”.
“Any lesson that people can take from this film or from ‘Doon’ or whatever they’re going to do and that’s what we’ve experienced in this one-and-a-half year will be fine.”
Chalamet, along with the cast of the film directed by Wes Anderson, French Lena Khoudri, Benicio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson and Bill Murray, walked and posed on the red carpet at Cannes before the gala exhibition. The festival’s official photocall, but did not offer a general press conference.
The film is a tribute to cinema and France and has a great visual spectacle, very much in Andersen’s style, though less rounded than other previous works.
A film for which director Nouvel was vague and inspired by French cinema in general, but in particular by directors such as François Truffaut and his film “The Four Hundred Strokes”, reveals Chalamet.
It is a film “one hundred percent Wes Anderson, with his vision and his love for France, the France that exists or the France that is in his head,” says the actor, happy, who assures that it is “a “Be part of that vision of the world” from the director of titles such as “The Great Budapest Hotel” and “Moonrise Kingdom”.
Each team prepared and shot their parts individually, so they only understood the story when they saw it a year ago, Khowdri admitted. The film was supposed to release at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival, which could not be held as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the director and producers decided to wait for this version.
A year in which younger generations have learned that you have to fight for justice and do things well, Chalamet says.
He says what the youth are looking for is justice in all fields, whether it is “racial justice, environmental justice or economic justice”. Aside from sexual, there is a lot present in the questions that actors were asked while presenting their films.
And he wanted to highlight the people who fight for and inspire those principles, like Greta Thunberg and Amanda Gorman and the “wonderful poem I read at (Joe) Biden’s inauguration.”
“It was wonderful to see. Thank God there are people out there!”, who “push you to fight, to push things forward,” reflects Chalamet.
