In the interview, Jenni Murray is talking with Isabella Huppert, who is one of the greatest actresses of French cinema. Interview is about her latest cinema which is called to Home.
The interview starts with the question ‘How would you define your character?’ Isabella Huppert defines her character saying that she is anything else but a mother.Also, she adds that she does not want to go away although her house was invaded. She doesn’t know what she would do. Her husband’s views are also important for her. Apart from these, Isabella Huppert states that she loves her character because she wears different clothes. She wears sexy dresses one day, but another day she chooses funny dresses which is belong to 1950s. As a second question, interviewer asks what the message of film is. She replies that actually there are several messages in the film, but final and most important message is that people need each other. Nobody is perfect. After this question, another question appears. Interviewer asks that generally you play psychopath and daring roles, why you prefer these roles and how you play these roles. Huppert said that firstly directors offer these roles and most of the time the audience wants these roles.She continues," I think that if you reach yourself, you can reach other people. At the same time, we actresses try to find positive aspects of the characters." Interviewer stresses that she played very complicated and different character in ‘A Piano Teacher’. Interviewer continues by asking:" While performing these roles, how much rely on the director?" Huppert replies sincerely this question, and she stated that she trusted him % 100. She adds that it was dangerous but one artist/actress doesn't rely on the director, he/she can’t success it. Then, interviewer states that she knew her comic talent also, so she asks a question about ‘eight women’ and in related to this, she asks that how much pressure she felt while working with seven women. Huppert says that it was really nice, the atmosphere was wonderful, it was quite well, because we were over-serious, over-bourgeois and sometimes both we were sexy and intellectual. Interviewer wondered about Cannes and she states that she was one of the four members of the Cannes jury and asks about also there was a fight. Huppert strictly rejected it and states that she doesn’t know about fighting, it was a big lie. She states that she doesn’t know why news occurred. She assumes that it was because of being French and women.
The interviewer asks about the film which is called to Anti-Christ. Huppert states that she loved this film because of the similarity to A Piano Teacher. Using a soft voice tone, she says that sometimes darks can be converted into innocence.Finally it was asked why she is so private. Then she replies that she is not so private, just private. In my opinion if you build up walls around yourself, people respect you.
At the end, Jenny Murray asks about her daughter, but if I were the interviewer , I would ask the differences between French and American cinemas. Also secondly, I would ask in the future what kind of films you prefer to play.
