Juliette Binoche on the set of A Thousand Times Good Night. The film is about a photojournalist and her work in Asia and Africa.
Juliette Binoche chooses only film roles that she believes in http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/rob-blake-jersey/ , but once she is on board she is utterly committed to finding the heart of her character. For her new film, A Thousand Times Good Night, she immersed herself in the complicated world of the photojournalist.
Juliette Binoche has reached a point in her career, she says, when she wants to choose roles carefully. She has never been afraid to say no, famously turning down Steven Spielberg three times (for Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park and Schindler's List) and walking away from the first Mission: Impossible film because she didn't like the script. For her the director is crucial, but so is the message.
"Most of my political engagement is in my choices," she says http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/jarome-iginla-jersey/ , by way of explanation. "You cannot speak out and do demonstrations and then choose films that are not related to that. I choose stories that I feel need to be told."
And so her latest film, A Thousand Times Good Night, opens in Afghanistan, with her character, Rebecca, photographing local women who, we gradually realise, are making ritual preparations for a suicide bombing. As the bomber gets into a van to be driven to her death, Rebecca insists on going along http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/teddy-purcell-jersey/ , saying she wants to tell the whole story. In the end, she doesn't get away quickly enough and is badly injured in the blast. When she recovers and returns home to her anxious husband and their two daughters, he says the stress is too much and asks her to choose between her work as a photojournalist, and her family.
It is a powerful, unflinching and ultimately very moving film that informs without being pious, thanks to a plot and cast that totally involves. (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - best known as Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones - plays Rebecca's husband; the newcomer Lauryn Canny is utterly convincing as their confused, contrary teenage daughter.) The film is directed by Erik Poppe, who himself worked as a photographer for Reuters and for newspapers in his native Norway before becoming a filmmaker. For further input, he called upon photojournalist friends such as Marcus Bleasdale http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/rob-scuderi-jersey/ , who took the on-set pictures shown here, as well as using his own, more recent work in Congo, Kenya, Afghanistan and Pakistan. "I have a wife and child now, which I didn't have when I started in the 80s," Poppe says. "So I brought in my experiences from the last few years to this story."
The dilemma isn't unique to journalists, he adds, it applies equally to medics http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/dwight-king-jersey/ , aid workers and anyone else who feels compelled to work in dangerous places because they believe they can make a difference. "I wanted to ask how you cope with that, when you have a family. And what price is paid not just by you, but by the people around you."
At first Poppe saw it as a Scandinavian film, but once it became clear that it would be easier to finance if it were in English, he decided to pursue Binoche for the lead. She has never made a secret of her aversion to celebrity gossip, suing French magazines for invading her privacy and gaining a reputation for being evasive in interviews. But she has also long been a vocal supporter of Reporters Without Borders. Along with her support of human rights in countries such as Iran, this seemed to make her a good fit. "I was touched by the story," she says. "Even though the script wasn't totally there yet when I first read it, I felt it was compelling."
We meet in the bar at Claridge's in London. Binoche has come over from Paris to do the interview because http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/peter-budaj-jersey/ , she explains, this is a film she wants to support.
She loves to travel. When she was 16 she hitchhiked around Poland during the Solidarity uprising, to discover her roots (her maternal grandparents were Polish). She has walked to Machu Picchu, seen glaciers in Patagonia, and recently had a three-week break with friends in Antarctica. She has somehow combined this with a prolific acting career and bringing up two children. She has never publicly named the fathers of her children, but Raphael's father is usually reported to be Andr Halle, a professional scuba diver whom she met during the troubled three-year shoot of her 1991 film Les Amants du Pont-Neuf. Her daughter, Hana, 14 http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/jeff-carter-jersey/ , is said to be by Benoit Magimel, her co-star in the 1999 film Les Enfants du Sicle.
"The way I resolved it at the beginning was to take my children wherever I was going, until my daughter was 6, and her father didn't want me to take her with me. Then, when my son was 10, I thought I had to ask him if he wanted to travel around with me, or whether he'd like to stay at home with his father, his friends and his normal activities - and he wanted to stay at home, mostly."
Her own childhood was difficult. Her parents split up when she was 4 http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/tyler-toffoli-jersey/ , and she and her older sister, Marion, were packed off to boarding school. She was unhappy there and has often said that acting was a way of replacing the family she felt she lacked as a child. At the age of 15 she decided to complete her education at a school specialising in drama, moving to Paris, where she lived with her sister, who was then 17.
She finished school and took drama classes at night, working as a cashier in a department store to get by. Her mother, a drama teacher, couldn't afford to help out http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/tanner-pearson-jersey/ , and her father, a director of masked theatre, had gone to live in Colombia. "I was lucky to have a very nice first boyfriend!" she says, laughing. She managed to get a few theatre parts, a couple of days' shooting on some TV dramas, then small roles in films, including Hail Mary with Jean-Luc Godard, before finally getting a break in 1985 with Rendez-vous, which won the Best Director award at Cannes for Andr Tchin.
Even then http://www.cheapnhljerseyskings.com/derek-forbort-jersey/ , she says, she almost gave up after doing three difficult films in a row in her 20s: as well as Les Amants du Pont-Neuf, for which she slePolo shirts .
