Pierre Arditi

 

  1. Jean-Francois Gerraud, Une histoire simple, France-West Germany,  1978.    “Arditi! Arditi! Arditi!”  Dominique Besnehard’s message to auteur Claude Sauetet.  The young  casting icon in the making admitted to a fixation on Arditi - a big hit on the Paris stage in Vaclav Havel’s Audience et Vermissage.  Sautet did not agree!  (He didn’t go for Florence Giorgetti, either - Arditi’s lover, and mother  of their painter son, Frederic).   Some years later, when a regular in  Alain Resnais films,  Arditi became sole winner in one single year of the rare triple of French awards as best film, stage and TV actor! 
  2. Bernard Giraudeau, Ridicule, France, 1995.   Too much attached to Resnais perhaps,  Arditi rejected realisateur Patrice Leconte’s offer to play the 18th Century L'Abbé de Vilecourt - when wit ruled at at the court of Louis XVI.Giraudeau had starred in Leconte’s 1983 actioner, Les spécialistes.
  3. Lambert Wilson, Cœurs (Private Fears in Public Places) France, 2006.    For the second Alain and Alan meeting - aged French nouvelle vague icon Resnais, and UK playwright Ayckbourn - Arditi played the drunken ex-army officer in some rehearsals opposite Benoit Poelvoorde’s suave bartender. The Belgian actor did not really mesh with Resnais - and Arditi tended bar in the eighth of his nine Resnais films. Poelvoorde went home and Wilson joined the officer ranks.
