gets a new look !
The son of actor Bernard Blier, director Bertrand Blier is known throughout France for his documentaries and dark depictions of sex and its impact on society. Though his influences and personal opinions clearly shine through, Les Acteurs is a satirical take on the ups, downs, and numerous implications of life in showbiz as told by a variety of real-life French actors. Among the featured cast are André Dussollier, Jean-Pierre Marielle, Jacques Villeret, Claude Rich, and Pierre Arditi, all of whom play themselves.
The working schedule was a nightmare, but everything went off fine. No scenes, no tragedies. This film renewed my enthusiasm for the movies. My director’s ego had been soothed by other satisfactions, namely a novel and a hit play. That eases things. “Les Acteurs” is not provocative. You can take your mother and grandmother to see it! It’s a film about love, my declaration of love to actors. Bertrand Blier, director
