Filmälskande generationsmöte about poetry's power

On Wednesday he participated in a panel discussion with hollywood star Julianne Moore and Xavier Dolan. The success franskkanandensaren, which is practically born in Cannes, competing for the palme d'or with his eighth feature film ”Matthias et Maxime”.

Julianne Moore says that her quality control is about the ability to memorize dialogue.

"When I can't remember my lines so I know they are poorly written," said the 58-year-old actress involved in the short film ”The staggering girl” directed by Luca Guadagnino (”Call me by your name”, ”Suspiria”).

" I am and will remain a 'celluloidman', explained Herzog. No matter what technique I use so I'm always as if it was expensive film in the camera. I am frugal and filming nothing in vain. When my photographers are talking about that we need the extra, for safety's sake, I say, that we're filmmakers, not skräpsamlare!

– I am looking for a kind of musicality when I write the script as I usually find in poetry. Filmdialog need was not real all the time, we find ourselves not in reality, we are in a movie. There is nothing more powerful than to get into the beauty and poetry in a dialogue, especially not when you put it into the mouth of a character who might not be expected to have read Apollinaire, but who can pass on the charge in such kind of poems.
