Julien Clerc

  1. Jérémie Elkaïm, Marguerite et Julien, France, 2015.    Scripted for François Truffaut in 1971 by his regular scenarist Jean Gruault after the director’s collaborator, Suzenne Schiffman, unearthed the tragic romance of siblings Julien and Marguerite de Ravalet, executed on Decemebr 2, 1603, for adultery and incest. That was the problem. Too many other films about incest from Louis Malle’s Le souffle au cœur/Murmur Of The Heart to Charlotte Rampling in Addio fratello crudel/‘Tis A Pity She’s A Whore. Actor turned sometime director Jean-Claude Brialy was extremely keen to take over with Adjani (from Truffaut’s L’histoire d'Adèle H/The Story of Adele H, 1975) and the French Hair find, singer Julien Clerc… presumably because he was called Julien. (We’re talking French films here). However, Brialy’s fourth directorial effort, Un amour de pluie, had flopped. CUT to 2011… Gruault finally publishes his scenario - received as a birthday gift by director Valérie Donzelli. Bingo! Except Seydoux, her first choice for Marguerite, was called away to battle Spectre with 007. Donzelli chose Demoustier from eight contenders. Wiih Gruault adapted by Donzelli and Jérémie Elkaïm (her Julien), the result was violently atacked at the 2015 Cannes Festival. Like I say, we’re talking French films here…
