Claire Denis talks Robert Pattinson and High Life

image host

Claire Denis was interviewed by TroisCouleurs (France) and below are the excerpts that mention Rob. Not surprised that Claire has joined us in our obsession with Rob.  Welcome to the club Claire [Note: translation via Google – click on the link above to read the full interview – remember it contains ***SPOILERS***]:

The idea of ​​the taboo arrives very quickly: from the beginning, the hero explains to the baby that the man is not supposed to eat his excrement, giving birth to them. 
When he explains that, it’s like he already knows what’s going to happen. He tells the baby “   it’s a taboo   ”, knowing that it will be broken, because it will be broken.

When the movie was screened in September at the Toronto festival, there was nausea and fainting. Do you think it is related to the representation of fluids (sperm, breast milk, blood …)?
Robert Pattinson showed me these reactions on Twitter. Even so, people are borderline … I am very worried about this regression. In the scene that has shocked some people, the character of Juliette Binoche is a priestess in the hands of her husband. ]. I thought it was enough in the second degree so people would not faint or vomit. [Maria: I see you Rob and your secret Twitter]

A beautiful indoor sun  (2017) was based on your memories, which you mix with those of Christine Angot. Does this film also have an autobiographical part?
[… Spoilers … ] The hero is a kind of Knight of the Round Table who thinks that chastity will help him survive, it’s not me at all. And for the character of the scientist, I had Patricia Arquette in the lead at the time of writing, except that she was not free at the same time as Robert Pattinson for the shoot. Juliette Binoche, with whom I had just done  A beautiful sun insidesaid, “  But what about me?  I replied, “  Well, then we go on! I had not thought of Robert Pattinson at all, the hero was for me an older man, tired of life and who had no taste for anything, who did not want to let himself be driven by his sexual urges or through his relationships with others. Robert had heard about the project from the casting director and his agent, and he contacted me. Frankly, I told myself that it was not possible, I could not rejuvenate the character so much, and then by regularly seeing Robert, I became addicted, like his groupies. I saw Twilight movies . The character he played had a past, and he was afraid to contaminate the girl he loved, it touched me a lot.

Robert Pattinson said that until the last moment you did not have the baby and that you were missing an actress, but that did not panic you at all.
He is nice ! For the baby, we were condemned to work with twins [the schedules of child are legally very framed,  ed]. Except that I did not like them. It’s not that they were not good, but I have a twin sister, and I hate the idea that twins are identical and interchangeable. It turned out that my mother, at the start of filming in Cologne, was dying in a hospital in Paris. One Saturday morning, I took the train and I spent the whole weekend with her. When I returned to Cologne, Robert was waiting for me in the hotel lobby and said, “ You know, Claire, I think you’re right about the  twins, I don’t really feel them.  I was carried by the strength that my dying mother gave me: everything seemed minimal next to that. So I said to Robert: ” Tomorrow, I will not film with the twins.  He replied, “ My childhood best friend has a 12-month-old girl whom I adore, do you allow me to call her?”  I told him yes! And right now, everyone was happy.
