After Replay, which featured In Competition in 2001, Catherine Corsini returns to Un Certain Regard with Three Worlds, a film that presents three characters: Al, who causes an accident and flees, Juliette, who witnesses the accident, and Véra, the wife of the victim, an undocumented Moldavian. They are all 30 years old, but their aspirations are different: upward mobility for Al, construction for Juliette and survival for Véra.
What does Un Certain Regard mean to you?
Why is cinema essential for you?
Because I am bored without it. I need it to live.
Which type of cinema or which film continues to inspire you?
I don’t really have what I’d call a cult film. I love films where I don’t want to leave the cinema when the lights come up. Films that are like novels, believable, that speak of people’s lives… I can see “Two English Girls” over and over again without getting tired of it, as well as Pialat’s “La maison des bois” and anything by Renoir, but also Coppola’s “Godfather”, and all of Ozu’s works.
What question would you like to ask to any film director?
Would you be willing to die to make a film?
What are you expecting from the Festival de Cannes?
I am so happy to be in Cannes that it is already huge. I am very nervous about showing the film. I hope that the audience in Cannes will be captivated. In this place nothing can be taken for granted, there are so many good films.
