Aller au cinéma ou faire l’amour

Illustrated book
Written by Christine Masson
Published by Textuel, Paris

 

From the Publisher:

“She has been up close and personal with such big shots such as Pialat, De Niro, Wenders, Spielberg, Almodovar, Ferrara, Kaurismaki…For the first time, Christine Masson tells the stories of her secret behind the scene moments she’s collected over the past 30 years with the grand stars of cinema.
The story about when Francis Ford Coppola decided to take his family to a little Italian restaurant while they were at the Cannes film festival and Christine had convinced each table of diners to hum, at her cue, the theme song to The Godfather….or the story where she encountered Lars Von Trier having a hypnosis session in the basement of a hospital in Copenhagen. The intimate glamour of Yann Legendre’s illustrations will have you feeling transported directly to the scene of the story. These are the stories of a woman consumed for her love for the cinema.”
