Life is strange, Eva Roque threw away her column. At 3 p.m. this Thursday, the announcement of Bertrand Tavernier’s death upset everything, upset us. So Eva Roque threw it all away, or almost.
She kept this special evening on Paris Première around the one who was the master of dialogue in the cinema.
The one who shoots us with his witticisms, who crushes us with his formulas. Michel Audiard. Two of his films are broadcast and a documentary entitled “Le terminus des pretentieux” which should have been the title of Tontons Flingueurs. Audiard, the gunslinger, who castigates the directors, some in any case. He would probably never have criticized Bertrand Tavernier. The latter was too respectful of texts and authors. For his first film, “L’horloger de Saint-Paul”, he surrounded himself with Jean Aurenche and Pierre Bost, two huge screenwriters. A film, despite the presence of Philippe Noiret that he had difficulty in financing. Extract from the formidable program “Trois vies de cinéma”, a dialogue between Tavernier, Bertrand Blier and Patrice Leconte still available on Mycanal as well as several films such as “Life and nothing else”, or “A Sunday in the countryside”.
This Friday evening, Arte offers “The Princess of Montpensier”, TF1 film series chose “The Daughter of d’Artagnan”. Sunday on France 2, you will be able to rediscover “Quai d’Orsay” and “L627”. While Netflix also offers a Tavernier collection.
Bertrand Tavernier was still looking for funding to shoot a new film. The money didn’t arrive, so he got down to writing his memoirs. No doubt by listening to a few pieces of jazz, like those he had sublimated in his film “Autour de Minuit”.
