1:33 am
critical south critical everything from where the government their football very movies what's your point of view how pleased you. would you estimate the festival because the press was true of the region the russian press and the moon as a whole mom about the selection you know about the first oh i thought i had been the greatest time i saw brilliant movies we discovered these three discovered i mean that i discovered these three and four extraordinary films. utter luxury of being in a hotel room where i open the curtains and there's the red square every morning i got to see that with this beautiful weather the absolutely charming more lovely people. so i can finally you.
1:34 am
know there's going to movies. you were the chair of the jury so it was the criteria you yourself introduced through for selection for judging no not at all i mean i didn't have the. it's you can't really rationalize emotion and it went through my eyes my heart my stomach brain not necessarily in that order and then the amazing thing was that the jury we were all very very different and we were sort of avoiding each other at the beginning and thinking oh boy this is going to be such a battle and everything and i came the reunion we had all picked the same film. we were all absolutely. back on it. and that was incredible. i mean i had in the back of the night with a ok i want number one the special prize the jury prize to be the story
1:35 am
and i want the best directed to be from actually a nice film which is the hometown for no one to go broke in about a criteria with. you know and the only thing i can compare it to would be. say you're presented with this. chest the chest and is minutes full of treasures and you have all this wonderful jewelry and you take and there are this necklace and this map this in this ring and this and this grace and it's all full of this treasure and suddenly there is this perfect pearl. and you take that out and that is the film. and then you take out the amazing opulent full of jewelry magical really and necklace and that is the story and then you find this very strange
1:36 am
but perfect design and you can sample something exotic about but it's such the artistry is so amazing that's the chinese room. and there's no other criteria there and then it doesn't mean all the rest are fake mo we had a couple. but they were. comparing it to jewelry isn't that awful but. criteria. i'm not surprised. because you do have a special feeling to spain germany in spanish ury even speak you speak spanish we're going to mean. oh no but but what what's your opinion spanish cinema today is really as different a special a spanish football you can see what makes football different but what makes polish cinemas so special are all good directors good directors under fortunately there's a severe lack of same as in football of the other of. the produces i
1:37 am
mean the crisis there's very little money. and. well there's little money makes you think he's you know then people go for something that they're pretty sure that they're going to get lungs on seats. for the first week and that's it and this film isn't really an option two and the amazing thing is that that the think free press he also gave that the first prize so it wasn't just because they spoke spanish and this is an. opinion about the contemporary russians and which is which is also very much criticised when the russians say well these were the days when the soviet times when the russians did good moves what about today's russian is your personal do you see all of them i saw two the two that were in competition and they were both laughing brilliant the shadow show which we gave them special jury prize to is
1:38 am
a magnificent film it is full it is unbelievably funny it's very sad. it's very russian it is incredibly intelligent it tells four different stories and it tells them from different different it's not different point of view but you see what yes it is when you see one story and then suddenly that story is in the other side of the story it is the beautiful images at one point you know the subtitles were very low and very tiny and suddenly the image didn't matter the images they completely took over and. i don't think i want to work with this. this is an amazing film it is amazing the other spanish movie heart of boomerang is very. very beautiful spanish version russian nationalists and. no russian special feeling.
1:39 am
it was. is the story of a young guy twenty three year old he works in the metro and the doctor system at the beginning of the movie you know you have this heart problem and you could die any second and how everything suddenly is transformed but not in an obvious way he tells no one he doesn't tell his mommy doesn't tell his friends he doesn't tell his girlfriend he doesn't tell anyone but the filmmaker by showing it by staying a little longer than he should on this cup makes you feel that maybe of course it's going into seconds. may never see a cup again and the relationships change or become more than you feel it was around and looking at the last moments of his life judy you have
1:40 am
a part you played in in a number of movies that were nominated different festivals so you know this feeling of being judged of the assuaging what's more difficult to to be judged or to judge for yourselves. can you can again i'm not about the word i mean i think the prizes are often often in this case not but often the prizes are certain. compromise i mean i've been in a lot of juries where. part of the jury is action at about one film and another part is passionate about another film and so one chooses for the first prize a film that sort of most people agree that they like and so and then after insisting on them you know that really does not get this consensus which is which is not good. in this in our case it wasn't like that we were all of the jury were absolutely passionate about these three films but in answer to your question. i
1:41 am
don't know the festivals they're always when you go to a festival as a as a participant in the film it's just you're so overworked and it's so crazy and it's so you don't see and you don't don't get to see any movies all you do are interviews and selling the movie and you don't even have time to worry when people talk about sport this. isn't about. the best it's not saluting the willing the will will be the festival is about selecting the best movie or is it again about. who won this it's just a certain thing that happens at a certain time i'm sure a lot of it has to do with what time the jury see the film how late they were up the night before. the after party here yes which none of us went really well for but no i don't think i don't think it's i don't think it's the best i don't think it's it's as those words are all awful i mean we're looking for is. in movies and we're passionate about movies that you get into injury have to because otherwise
1:42 am
it's. it's an uncomfortable job as you say judging no. and you see and you learn and you learn from every movie that you see this is what is it fun being part of a story you wouldn't do it because it's very hard work it's very hard work we saw. i'll tell you the number thirty four hours and twenty minutes of movies. which but working do they give you chose to watch something on a d.v.d. and you hope soldiers i know that wouldn't have anything good i wasn't me that wouldn't be fair and we have to be in the in the movie theater at a certain time and see it on the big screen with a public gaze any action of the public yes yes prejudice it is simply react since i don't all struggle to see don't i don't think it is for me i think i'm going to get completely involved in in the film says the children chaplin chair of the early

1:47 am
wanted to be a valid answer because i fell in love with my sister in law who was a dance and i thought she was the greatest thing on earth and so i wanted to do i wanted to have her hairdo and so i went into dancing and then i fell in love with ballet ballet with michael and that was when you went to boarding school so it's a little note a little later later later i wasn't know obviously i wasn't boarding school my parents live nearby but i know him ballet class and you had to go it and i went to ballet classes and then i was in dance and i was a professional dancer and then i worked for a while in the circus i trained elephants and you train goes then then. it's not as romantic as it sounds and so i love always find a look for something easy it's interesting that you told me you know because in some of your interviews i heard that. he was he was strongly against his children take your own yes and you started to approve the birth for from a very early age being a ballet dancer so what is
1:48 am
a lonely valley how it was ok for him it was ok well you never thought i'd be that serious about it and i was fourteen when i started which is a bit late now he wanted his children his children to have decent professions like doctor lawyer and dentist says a lot of engineers would have been ok markets actually have been ok but actor no that's the pits and so i left home i kind of did i leave home where i was i thrown out i'm not quite sure i either left home or i was thrown away out of the seventy's and and went into ballet and went to the world of the school and became a dancer and although i danced really beautifully in my head. the body never. oh i was soon without a job and i thought well let's not miss something easy with a name like tap and hey i can get a job last. year you were thrown out there you live we should we should watch. chaplin movie once again to see how it happened the question i want to ask you many
1:49 am
people today they know your family your father. from the film they were childless i know anything about charles charlton you played in the you played your own ground so how quickly i love this movie myself how adequate is the food from your point of view. is chaplin himself when you watch this movie was it really didn't want to you know. i thought robert downey jr was absolutely extraordinary but i don't know if that was daddy i was born when my father was already of white haired. i've got to know him when he must have been about sixty five or six and it was all you see you see. from a child the man that the little tramp in the movie is with this guy with karkare when curly hair and had nothing to do with my father my father was charlie chaplin
1:50 am
and the tramp tramp and so i don't know if that's a good portrayal of not. but it's certainly a very attractive one of the longer the movie version and then as long as that was because it was a long life. you played your first role. if i'm not mistaken in language. as an extra year what was your first impression when when you first came to know how it's made in that i do wings of i had no idea i was eight years old. i was just so happy not to have to go to school. and then we had to go to school anyway because that was a law that you have to have. but i so yes i saw. reconstructive london and it was ok it was cool but it was nothing i wasn't old enough to really. be curious and appreciate just up. one of the greatest movies in which used on the
1:51 am
was a was the room of tanya emotion reefs wife inductions wagner well really great movie but there were later versions of the same movie putting a russian version of a jealous other versions of no i didn't know i didn't know i was. somewhere i can't come i'm aware and some journalist on when he said hey you know they're making. a t.v. version of i think with keira knightley i'm not sure is a great you know. it's a compliment if they're remaking it they're remaking it it means the story is still good and gives a chance to other people i didn't know there was a russian one zero zero zero be interesting to see the resolution so it. was a lot of talk about the talkies killing the. cinema do you do you share this opinion do you think. that the sound in the movie is called the whole era to which you were. not at all no i think.
1:52 am
my father was very brave he made city lights and sounds and you know he really was . but. did destroy a lot of actors. whose voices had nothing to do with what the public thought i mean they were the lucky ones that have been voices. but in the soil a lot of people's careers. your daughter. also become to become a what do you thing about your children following you. well i'm indignant. i want them to have decent professions. lawyer really is a no no you really have you know that's what she was afraid said they were the first you know advices you have to be able to take rejection because if you.
