JULIE DELPY interview in VR VIDEO... and LOLO review


CONVERSATION WITH JULIE DELPY

Julie Delpy's LOLO, screened at the RENDEZ-VOUS WITH FRENCH FILMS, at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, is a delightful, humorous, romantic(*), romantic comedy. 

(* Note: not every "romantic comedy" is particularly romantic these days. This  one is.)

Violette is looking for love and romance and more. Her son is Lolo. (Without giving anything away, note that Lolo is the title character.)

Julie wrote and directed the film, and plays Violette. Lolo is played by a terrific young actor, Vincent Lacoste. Violette's somewhat naive, geeky lover is played by Dany Blom, a noted French actor, director and producer. Violette's best friend is played by Karin Viard (who also appears in 21 Nights With Pattie at this year's RENDEZ-VOUS).

The story is mischievious(**) , and we discover at the end that it is making a more profound statement than we had realized.

(** A somewhat off-topic note on American usage: I use "mischievious" intentionally - rather than "mischievous" - to mean a deliberately humorous use of mischievous behavior. Lolo is mischievous. Julie's story uses mischievous behavour mischieviously.)

I talked with Julie about LOLO, about her film studies, about music in film, her work with Godard as a young actress, and many other topics.
