Unfaithful in Paris: "this is not an entertainment!"




Here is the introduction of Claude Pérès for the screening of Unfaithful in Paris:


"

- I introduce Claude Pérès. He's gonna explain his intention...

- Good evening.

I was interested in trying to look into human relationships on a set... a director asking an actor to do something... all those power struggles...

So I thought we had to do something for real to push it to the extreme and make all the tiny details obvious.

We could have killed each other, but I obviously rejected that idea... I thought you would laugh... Thank you.

At that point came the issue of sex. Leaving this question to moralistic people or pornographers... This is something which bugs me. We all should jump into it.

With this idea of searching for tiny details, talking about sex might allow something to happen.

This is not an entertainment. That means I don't try to seduce you or to convince you. I give you enough room and time to question what you are watching, even if you dislike it.

Enjoy the screening.

a sort of conversation

I would like to paste a sort of conversation on youtube about Unfaithful, because I think it points out something I couldn't have planed, the perception of the viewers... I mean, I didn't anticipate - and anticipate that would have been a marketing job, which I obviously refuse to do - the prejudices of the viewers, the fact that they have an idea of what cinema is and should be and expect something related to this idea. Hopefully some viewers come bare as we tried to come bare while making this movie.

I don't think this film will work. It's very difficult to make gay cinema that is philosophical and existential. It just comes across as glorified porn.

I disagree that it does not work. I have watched Unfaithful twice and was fascinated by the interaction, the scripted honesty and have often wanted film makers to explore sex in cinema with more blatant honesty. What better way to unravel interactions than stripping bare any walls that we hide behind. This fits in beautifully with the old Dogma 95 Manifesto which I am still addicted to. Great work Claude...
