Marion Cotillard Describes the Process of Preparing for Her Role in the Movie Annette.
Marion Cotillard talked about the process of preparing for and singing for her role in a talk about Leos Carax’s Annette.
Annette, the new film of master director Leos Carax’s musical genre, had its world premiere at the 74th Cannes Film Festival recently, and some praised the film, as well as those who slammed the film and described it as bad.
The film, whose songs were composed by the rock band Sparks and the actors both speak and sing at the same time, met with the audience recently. Marion Cotillard, one of the lead actresses of the movie, spoke to IndieWire about the movie and talked about the process of preparing for the role and singing for the role.
Marion Cotillard is actually an Oscar winner for the movie La Môme, in which she plays Edith Piaf, by singing in front of the camera and performing quite well before. However, Cotillard’s singing process in Annette is quite different from her performances so far. The master actor put this process into words as follows:
“It would be very frustrating to record the songs in the studio and basically lip-sync the entire shoot. So it was very exciting to sing songs live, but it was very stressful because singing live often involves bodily movements that you don’t do while singing. You don’t usually swim on your back, smoke, or lie down while singing because these actions change the sound.”
The master actress also stated that he sang all the opera songs himself while shooting the movie, and even trained for two months to prepare for it. We will continue to share new news please follow the International Film Platform
