the warmest role model you have the title role why shouldn't you have absolutely all right okay well Colin good morning good morning it's nice to be talking with you if here in Chicago about Val mo I bring you good news I am your last interview before lunch it was so we do this you get rewarded with lunch okay to do good good anyway let me say in all seriousness how much I enjoyed the film there is wonderful and
00:31
your performance just excellent I mean it's such a sumptuous pictures and well I just saw it for the first time yesterday afternoon and it's been kept I think they're only two prints in this country at the moment and has been kept very discreet and very sort of under wraps so it's been a big mystery I spend six months of my life on this thing it's a big production and then you hear nothing everything just goes quite a mouth I see the movie and now everybody's telling me things and it's it's quite an upheaval while you were
01:04
waiting for this one to come out did you see dangerous liaison yeah I went to see it yeah I liked it I thought it's very very good I it has nothing to do with this in fact I in fact I thought that at the time and then when I saw our movie I felt it even more really i thought how can you compare these things the truth valmont's though are very different and yours is a a little lighter lighter
01:33
strokes not quite as mean or diabolical was that pretty much your interpretation or was that lilo just encouraging that very much me Lucia he was right it felt right um I agreed with him I suffered from a great temptation to make him as much of a villain as possible a lot of the time I think actors want to do that I don't maybe some don't I but I love villains i mean i would love to really play one full throttle and just same as
02:03
evil as possible but i think in our particular interpretation i think that would have been an over simplistic and far too comfortable a choice and I think that paradoxically despite the fact that the characters in our film I perhaps lighter and more likeable as such I think that it is slightly more difficult because it's not as comfortable to like these people and their behavior think it would be far easier if you could sit back and judge them and shake your head and tight you
02:35
know that they're all up to no good and I would never do such a thing well as in this one I think you get involved and I think that you I don't think anybody should really do anything in this film that's very far beyond what anybody else is capable of and I think that's part of its strength you were quoted as having said that Milo's Foreman never lets you off the hook what did you mean their directors I think particularly if you're working to tight schedule and you've got little money who will say lovely darling
03:08
that's fine that'll do and it's in the can and it really is second burst and milosz will never allow that to happen you know you he knows if it could be better and he knows if you can do better and he doesn't or even if you feel you can't do better and who thinks you can you know he'll go for it and tell you and it doesn't matter how much sweat there is as a result he just keeps at it and it's quite a grueling thing but it's it's uplifting because eventually I
03:39
think actors will excel themselves under this circumstance does he ever push you to the point where you get a little testy and you wish you'd just lay off for a while yes I would say so yeah there were times a night I just thought elephant I cannot function with this bombardment of demands you know and but you know it's done in such good faith there's never any real hostility there's never any anger involved there's never anything malicious you know you hear directors who are really quite sadistic
04:10
in their approach there's nothing of that with him it's entirely humane and you're always on the same side you know you're working to make the thing good and it was it was enormously challenging and exhilarating to work but yeah there are times you get testy and there were times that he got depressed I remember I remember he there was an airplane going over for the 50th time and Salman said well what do you want me loss to him to why the module should we do whether capture going door and he just said I don't want to make any more movies anymore now it's at
04:42
times and it gets to that point in six months of shooting you know he looked at a lot of actors I'm told before he decided that you would be foul Mille yeah so what did you do that impressed him so much I really don't know I mean I've what I tried to work it out obviously and I i think i just took it a different approach I mean what as you see that I'm really not what most people expect I want to be like I didn't think and I think it was precisely that but interested him he didn't want anything
05:14
obvious in this film and there is nothing obvious in this room thank goodness because we've all seen plays read the book of seen another film version and I think this is full of surprises and nobody is what you expect and I think he hears problem with most of the people he saw was they made the art of seduction terribly serious business they smolder than they look dangerous and all this sort of thing and I remember me not saying why is it why they think that a woman who goes to bed
05:44
with a man who is so serious all the time you know when why didn't you know why's he not make a laugh and and I I knew that I wasn't going to get away with a smoldering lover thing I mean that's just not me and I think so I I used levity and humor and I suppose it must have had something to do with that I don't know I didn't think it's you know I don't think I out Sean the talons of everybody else that we're known for his latest well you are a charming can I
06:13
must say and again it's just such a glorious film I hope you I hope it does well thank you and thank you calling I enjoyed talking with you very very much thank you very much thank you I'd love to in country also oh yeah so I suppose
