La Chambre Bleue : Actor/Director Mathieu interview from Cannes

I learned last month that French actor/director Mathieu Amalric was adapating and debuting the Georges Simenon crime novel The Blue Room or La Chambre Bleue at Cannes. Now comes the news that the North American rights to the film, despite disappointingly mixed reviews, have been snapped up by Sundance Selects. Directed by Amalric, La Chambre Bleue also stars Léa Drucker, Stéphanie Cléau, Laurent Poitrenaux and Serge Bozon.

Check out this new interview (in English) with Amalric direct from Cannes, where he drops that he likes actors who appreciate it's not all about them (Lights Camera Action) but also the news that he's signed on to the BBC production of Wolf Hall costarring Mark Rylance. The interviewer is so impressed by Amalric working with Rylance (former director of the Globe Theater) that he's borderline insulting, the way I see it. Take a look. I'll load the trailer as well. It's in French with no subtitles but with bare naked bodies, who needs words?
