Mathieu Amalric

  1. Mathieu Demy, Jeanne et le garcon formidable, France, 1998.     The one garcon too many was an 007 villain by 2008. He was famously described by The Guardian critic Xan Brooks  as having .”the charm of an elf and the eyes of a rodent.”
  2. Emmanuel Salinger, La Sentinelle, France, 1991.      Although he had not really acted in a film before, Almaric’s test for auteur Arnaud Desplechin’s second film went well. Just not good enough for the lead… Or not until Desplechin’s third movie, Comment je me suis disputé… (ma vie sexuelle), 1995.
  3. Grégori Derangère, Bon Voyage, France, 2003.   Auteur Jean-Paul Rappeneau’s initial selection for one of many trying to flee Paris before the Nazis arrive. Others included Rappeneau favorites, Gérard Derardieu (his 1980 Cyrano de Bergerac) and Isabelle Adjani (Tout feu, tout flamme, 1981).
