1. What are the last 3 movies you saw?
Marina De Van: Dark shadows - Which I enjoyed.
Cosmopolis - Which I enjoyed although I couldn't understand the plot.
Old Cats - Might be Spanish or Argentinean. I don't remember and it wasn't good.
2. Who, in your opinion, do you think is the best active director working in film right now?
MDV: I have absolutely no idea, really. There's a lot of interesting stuff. No one in particular whose work I follow with devotion.
|Don't Look Back (2009) In My Skin (2002)|
MDV: Never heard about this concept and I don't feel like I belong to any movement or group. I don't know who the other extremists are and don't want to know. I'm doing my own small path and I don't feel any link with anyone, even if I might be linked without knowing it. I don't go to the cinema very often and I rarely see French movies. I probably haven't even seen the films you have in mind, so…no.
|In My Skin Don't Look Back|
MDV: They're female because I'm a female. I can't spontaneously put my own mind in a man's body & soul very easily.
I'm not sure the body is so important though because it's only a place for transformation: nor the content nor the real goal of the transformation, which is rather the self that you can aim through the body.
5. Can you give us a short description of what your new film, Dark Touch, is about?
MDV: Child abuse, haunted objects and killing people. It’s about how a person can still discover their own emotions. Similar to the other films I’ve already done which, unfortunately, are so few. I hope there'll be others…
