Marie-France Pisier

French actress Marie-France Pisier has been found dead in the swimming pool at her home in the south of France.

The 66-year-old's lifeless body was discovered in the early hours of Sunday (24Apr11) by her husband, Thierry Funk Brentano.

Officials in Toulon, near the couple's villa in Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, have launched an investigation to determine the cause of death, but foul play is not suspected.

Pisier began a career as an actress in 1961 when she was cast by director Francois Truffaut in short film Antoine and Colette.

The Ice Rink (La Patinoire) Review


OK

A lightly and fondly sarcastic, self-irreverent mockery of movie making, "The Ice Rink" ("La Patinoire") takes place behind the scenes on a location shoot for a inflated French art film trying to wrap production in time to qualify for the Venice Film Festival.

All we're told about the film-within-a-film is that it's a sports opus and romantic tragedy (!) about a hockey goalie and a beautiful girl who dies in his arms after being shot in the back while skating towards him in a ball gown (a scene that is shot over and over with a hairy-chested stunt man as her double).

"Sudden death (overtime) is a metaphor for Europe's predicament," insists the movie's frustrated director (Tom Novembre), who desperately holds his project together through a Murphy's Law deluge of semi-sophisticated slapstick disasters.

Time Regained Review


Terrible

For the sake of perspective, this review should begin with a confession: Your critic knows little of Proust. I haven't read any Proust. Most quotes I've heard from the deeply philosophical writer have come from the mouths of people so full of themselves that the words went in one ear and out the other out of disdain for the speaker. I admit it, I'm an ignoramus on this front.

So as you come to realize that I didn't much care for "Time Regained," the French film adaptation of Marcel Proust's last novel, feel free to draw the conclusion that I haven't the slightest idea what I'm talking about.

What little I do know of Proust, however, leads me to believe if the man were alive today he would scoff at the idea that the deliberate formlessness of "Time" could successfully be adapted to film.
