Part 1:
Journalist (J): The film, produced by Paulo Branco Portuguese, will compete for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The list chosen to tender, selected by the jury, was released this morning in Paris and includes the movie Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenber and produced by Paulo Branco. The film has been touted as one of the movies of the year and his debut is generating great expectations. The main actor is Robert Pattinson, star of movies of the Twilight saga, which has built an army of fans around the world.
[Teaser presentation]
J: In a moment, a brief conversation with Paul White, who manages with this appointment, the 11th film that produces the main film festival in Europe.
Part 2:
J: Return of the photograph [was the subject of the article above] to the movies, because the appointment of Cosmopolis, the new David Cronenberg film, produced by Paulo Branco Portuguese, which is live in the Journal of 8. Paul, very good night. This is the 11th film that produces and entering the main competition at Cannes, the most important festival in Europe. For what we have seen, the trailer and what is known, this is not a European film, if I may phrase. It is his most important film ever?
Paul White (CP): All movies, I think, that are important to a producer, but this is a bit special. It is logical. It’s a film that, for the first time I worked in a food system across the Atlantic – it was filmed in Toronto. It was filmed by one of the greatest directors out there, David Cronenberg, who had – if you want – at least the sympathy I have heard and have accepted my proposal and with great actors, I mean some actors in Hollywood. Therefore, it is really the first time I have a movie of this size and with a budget of this amount.
J: We are talking about an over-production?
PB: We are talking about producing an average American, about 15 million. The film is French-Canadian, had so much support from France, and Canada. After all, is a budget which independent producers are not used and above all the freedom I had to produce this film: the choice of director, the choice of actors (according to Cronenberg), and it was an experience only. Being now at Cannes is really an honor, a recognition. It is not “another movie”. Each film that is at Cannes in competition, is not “another”. It’s always something special, such as those who have been there and who follows the Cannes festival all can understand.
J: The list of participants is impressionable in this movie: the director is famous, David Cronenberg, the main actors, I would say are even more famous (Juliette Binoche and Robert Pattinson, star of Twilight). I wonder if it is intended to involve these artists in Portugal, the film’s release, scheduled for May, if I remember correctly.
PB: Exactly. It created such a rapport with Don de Lillo, David Cronenberg, Robert Pattinson, who spoke on the assumption that since they made a small tour across Europe to promote the film, starting with Portugal, accepted immediately. Therefore, they will be here soon after the Cannes Film Festival, for the Portuguese premiere of the movie. I think that is unique, a premiere for a movie in Portugal. And this is also an example of professionalism and at the same time, a supply of this film who has collaborated on this project. The Pattinson, for him, is a key project. He saw the movie and told me personally that it was perhaps his work he was most proud of and wanted to defend it where necessary. The Don de Lillo, one of the greatest writers – you know – the world when he saw the movie, also liked a lot.
J: And, in principle, we have them here sometime in May for the film’s release. Paul White, for a very brief response, in addition to the 11 films for the main competition, the Paul White sees an impressive total (I was reading) of 52 films that participated in the various section of the Cannes Film Festival. I asked him, in a tone half-joking, but seriously, if this accounts for the national exports.
PB: Of course that counts. When we are in Cannes, is to be the principle one step to the worldwide release of the movies that are there and we are able to contribute recipes, most of them come and go here in our country. We must also not forget – people forget a little that – we have ambitious projects in Portugal, a large portion of funding is also achieved internationally and are values ​​that are then spent in Portugal. I think some of us connected to the movies also have the concern to enhance and create added value for our country.
J: Paul White, thanks for coming to the Journal of 8 and congratulations on the appointment of Cannes.
