Renaud Verley

  1. Patrick Dewaere, Les valseuses (US: Going Places), France, 1973. Caustic auteur Bertrand Blier spent six months hunting the leads of the May ’68 of French cinema! (That explosive). After seeing the current young turks – Spissier, Francis Huster, Bernard Verley, Jacques Weber), Blier wanted unknowns. Trouble was while Gérard Depardieu wanted the Jean-Marc role, Dewaere wasn’t really interested in being Pierrot. “It’s not me!” he whined. Until he played it.  Perfectly.
