The action drama,
L'INTERVENTION, previously titled "15 Minutes de Guerre",
debuted in French theaters yesterday. Directed by Fred Grivois, the
film is inspired by the true story back in February 1976 when
Somalian rebels in Djibouti took control of a bus carrying
schoolchildren. Vincent has a minor role playing Général Favrart.
Here are some screen shots of him in uniform along with the film's
Going back over 30 years ago,
here are a couple photos of a very young Vincent when he attended
Patrice Chereau's acting school in Nanterre.
in October, Vincent attended the V Festival of French Cinema
in Moscow. The opening film of the
festival was Roman Polanski's "D'après une histoire vraie"
personally presented by Vincent. During his visit
to Russia, he gave several interviews. He was asked what it was like
working with Emmanuelle Seigner and Eva Green. He responded, "Eva
approaches the work very thoroughly and asks many clarifying
questions. She is always looking for something in the image. She
works a lot with the director and together they create something.
She is very open and benevolent. I would say that she has cinematic
magic. And with Emmanuelle, I've known her for a long time. She is
an amazing actress. We had a lot of scenes together in this movie.
She is energetic and lively. I was very comfortable working with Eva
When asked how he spends his
free time, he answered (smiling), "To be honest, I just don't have
much of it. Besides being an actor, I also direct, produce and write
scripts. Therefore, I have little free time. In addition, I am
seriously engaged in photography. Over the past two years, I have
had many expositions. And their organization also takes time and
effort... Recently I began to wake up at 5:30 in the morning so I
can 'feel' the day and have more time. Sometimes, of course, I give
myself the opportunity to sleep a little longer. But I noticed the
earlier you get up, the better you can tune in to the new day and
upcoming events. As for hobbies, I love going to museums, spending
time reading. And, of course, watching a good movie!"
Vincent doesn't mention time
spent with his family but here's a special photo of him relaxing
with his daughter Tess.
On January 21, Vincent attended the première
of the film "Les Estivants" at the Cinémathèque
in Paris. The film's director, Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi,
has been a close friend of Vincent's for many years so it's no surprise that
he would be in attendance.
I've come across some new
photos from the 17th Marrakech International Film Festival.
The first set is from the opening night on November 30th.
On December 1 the pair attended the tribute to
Robert De Niro.
And the next evening they attended the Agnes
Varda tribute dinner at La Mamounia.
On December 17th, Vincent &
Karine attended the Carla Bruni wax work unveiling at Musée
Grévin in Paris.
