Christine Boisson

  1. Natalie Perrey, La nuit des horloges, 2006.      B-movie French horrorsmith Jean Rollin wrote it for Boisson. They met, she asked to see some of his films, then she refused, “coldly,” because one of them – Raisins de la mort, 1977 – has scared her young daughter! Her replacement was a movie in herself… what US critic Tim Lucas hailed as “the backbone and sometimes the very sinew of [Rollin’s] filmography.” Natalie was in the French Resistance at 12, worked her way up in film from costumier in 1969 to script supervisor, production assistant and assistant director and actress for Rollin – and here, Lucas said, she served as a kind of pallbearer for Rollin himself.
