Talking film “The Intouchables” with LET’S TALK FILM

26 Jun

I had a fun time joining the women of Let’s Talk Film, a television series where contemporary women get a chance to have their voices heard on the latest film releases. Hosted by Stefanie Alleyne and produced by Denise Goines, Let’s Talk Film is broadcast in Manhattan on MNN-TV and its full episodes are also posted online.

The Intouchables starring Omar Sy and François Cluzet

My co-panelists and I munched on macroons at the Love Peace Cafe in Tribeca as we mulled over this moving film told with a light touch and interesting insights on race and class in contemporary Paris. Directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache with great chemistry and wonderful performances by  François Cluzet and Omar Sy (winner of France’s prestigious Cesar award), The Intouchables was a huge hit in France but hasn’t really gotten its footing among audiences in the U.S.

Word of a Weinstein Brothers remake has peaked some interest; I wonder if the cultural nuances and emotional integrity of the original will translate?

I recommend seeing this gem in its original form when it comes out on home video; The Intouchables DVD release date to be announced.

LA Web Fest 2012 CHOICES

Creating CHOICES was a labor of love, even more so because of its genre — an in-studio, multi-camera TV soap. It’s amazing to see this classic style of production find a home amongst the most cutting edge web series out there. Being part of the LA Web Series Festival 2012 is truly an honor.
