Guillaume Depardieu Is Dead at 37

Guillaume Depardieu on why he accepted the role in Bertrand Bonello's recent and much-anticipated De la guerre:

"Because in the title, there's the word 'war'. And because of Asia Argento."

And on Jacques Rivette:

"Thanks to him, I started to believe in the cinema, in light, in the plan-séquence, in the tracking-shot."

  1. I think he was a better actor than he thought himself. I remember one soiree last november at the premiere in Spain of "Ne touchez pas la hache". He appeared on the screen with "that" leg and a face of had been thinking about his role since days and days like Jimmy Dean. He looked at the sea and almost collapsed. It was quite impressing.
