Joëlle Coeur in Robbe-Grillet's Playing With Fire (1975)

I have just posted a fairly lengthy post over at Moon in the Gutter on Alain Robbe-Grillet's startling 1975 production Playing With Fire. Jean Rollin fans will want to take note of the film as our lovely Joëlle Coeur appears briefly in the film. Joëlle shot this film shortly after making Les démoniaques with Jean and here are a few stills I captured for fans here. Enjoy!

Marie-France Pisier R.I.P.

I woke up to the sad news this morning that lovely French New Wave icon Marie-France Pisier has passed away at the age of 66. Pisier had a remarkable career that saw her working with everyone from Robbe-Grillet to Techine to Rivette to Buñuel and she brought something truly magical to every role she played. Despite all of her fabulous work that stretched over five decades I will always picture Marie opposite Jean-Pierre Leaud in Truffaut's Antoine and Colette...a remarkable short-film that introduced the world to an unforgettable actress.

I am very saddened by this news and wish the best to Pisier's family and friends.
