Filming continued this month on DISPARUS, starring Vincent and  Claire Borotra. Check out this youtube video showing the cast and crew dancing up a storm. Some of the film was shot at a children's school in Piana, a small French village in Corsica. The first photo was taken in Piana and the other two are captures from the video mentioned above. The two-part series is scheduled for release on TF1 in October 2014.

On March 17th, Julie Depardieu presented a 60-minute documentary called "Guillaume D" as a tribute to her actor brother who died October 13, 2008 at the age of 37 years old. Among those who attended the premiere was Vincent and his wife. The film, created by both Ms. Depardieu and Pierre-Henri Gibert, was also telecast on French television on March 22nd. Guillaume was often called an enfant terrible by the French magazine Paris Match and was called eccentric and bohemian by others. In 1995, he suffered a motorcycle accident which required him to have surgery on his knee. In the hospital he contracted a Staphylococcus aureus infection in the knee, which led to 17 operations and the eventual amputation of the leg in June 2003. Guillaume was known to have had a strained relationship with his famous father, which he detailed in his 2004 autobiography "Tout Donner" (Giving Everything). The two were said to have reconciled shortly before his death. He died after contracting severe viral pneumonia at a filming location, where he had been working on a new film. Vincent worked with Guillaume (who happens to be his stepdaughter's half-brother) in two films - Peau d'ange and Le Pharmacian de garde.

I've been attempting to update some of the film pages, some of which were originally posted fifteen years ago. Yowser!!! Often new movie stills, posters and information become available and time permitting, I try to add them to the VP Archives. In the case of "Il Viaggio di Capitan Fracassa" (1991), among the new acquisitions for this film is this gallery of portraits of a very young Vincent with his co-star Ornella Muti. Be sure to check out the film page as well.

FYI, you can purchase the Blu-ray edition, which is region-free. The supplemental features on the disc include the film's original theatrical trailer, new video interviews with director Ettore Scola, cinematographer Luciano Tovoli, and Vincent. Included are English & French subtitles for the main feature.
