A woman apart There will be a fair few extra Fedoras donning Moncler Jackets For Women Sale the heads of Melbournians after a weekend with Anna Karina. The Danish actress, who first gained widespread fame and iconic status as the wife, muse and star of seven films by Jean Luc Godard, answered questions and shared secrets with her adoring fans during her MIFF 09 retrospective. Anna Karina is a woman with a story for every occasion. Born Hanne Karin Blarke Bayer, she arrived in Paris at 17 and was instructed to change her name by none other than Coco Chanel. She was offered a small part by JLG in Breathless but she refused because she would have to take her clothes off. JLG didn understand why. He had seen Anna in a soap commercial her skin was showing in that! But for Anna, the bubbles were having a fur coat on When she received another telegram from the director, it was to audition for the lead in a film The film was Le Petit Soldat. It would be fair to say that when Anna tells these stories everyone in her midst is mesmerised. She has an undeniable movie star presence her voice gravelled from (at a guess) one too many Gauloise cigarettes, her trademark dark fringe still visible underneath her black Fedora. She wears bold red and black coloured clothes and large silver earrings. She is generous in her reminiscence and even tries to accommodate the inevitable questions of her relationship with Godard. Karina and JLG married during the filming of A Woman is a Woman. She won the Silver Berlin Bear, Best Actress award at the Berlin International Film Festival, 1961. Jean Luc won a special jury prize and the film was nominated for the Golden Berlin Bear. She was twenty one and he was ten years her senior. Karina can name her favourite film, choosing instead to quote Godard. Jean Luc always says, films are like children. Some of them look a little bit better than the others. Some of them may be a little more happy or charming Of all the directors Karina has worked with though, Godard of course her favourite. She says, taught me everything. When I met him, I was young. He gave me all of these presents, these beautiful parts to do. Also we had a real, big love story. Full of passion. Of course like all passions, it can last but we not going to talk about that, it too sad. Karina MIFF retrospective includes the Godard films, A Woman is a Woman (1961) Pierrot Le Fou (1965) and Alphaville (1965). Also screening is the comedy that drove Godard to a jealous distraction, Michel Deville Tonight or Never (1961) and Jacques Rivette The Nun (1966) a film that Anna calls gift She had played the role of Suzanne in the theatre under the direction of Rivette. Everyone who saw it it was very touching including Brigitte Bardot who came to see it with actor Sami Frey, when she saw it. She thought it was very moving. When it was released as a film, it caused what Anna calls biggest scandal you have ever seen in France Even now she seems incredulous at the response from the Catholic Church who so angry films screening at the festival as part of the retrospective are Rainer Werner Fassbinder Chinese Routlette (1976) and Anna (Pierre Koralnik, 1967) a made for TV musical feature with songs written for Karina by Serge Gainsbourg of whom she was an admirer. She clearly relishes the window of time she had with Gainsbourg before he met Bardot and then, Jane Birkin. When that happened, she says little place was taken away from me. Her favourite song in the film? Roller Girl, in which Karina embodies the epitome of geek chic. Anna introduced the film that bears her name to a full house. The same cannot be said for her most recent film, Victoria (2008) her second as director which screened at 9.15pm on Sunday night a slot that apparently suits only the most die hard of fans. For Victoria, Karina was approached by Canadian Hejer Charf to write, direct and star in a self financed, independently produced road movie. Karina accepted the chance because she felt she would have the liberty of maintaining her creative freedom. In Victoria, Karina plays a woman who becomes a benefactor to a pair of singing drag queens. The film has surrealist overtones, including references to Luis Bu and relies very heavily on coincidence. Music for Victoria is composed by Philippe Katerine with whom Karina has recorded the album, Un historie d and performed in concert. At the Q that followed the screening, Karina was at pains to remind us of the low budget. It a point she labours Karina doesn like asking for money! It the reason she produced her 1972 directorial debut entirely herself. Perhaps my favourite Karina MIFF 09 story is that of this film, Living Together. She had thought that after 50 odd films and numerous theatre roles, she would direct her own film. She had a tiny crew and budget. The film was shot over three and a half weeks in Karina Paris apartment and New York. It was a different time, she says. People would say, don know how to make films and will be very difficult for you to be in front of the camera and behind the camera Karina says now, stupid to say that. Actors and actresses have done a lot Moncler Labels of films with their legs, with their arms, with the whole crew and the camera. Why shouldn they be as good as a first assistant director who has made three or four films? They done it with their body! It very important to do things with your body. It like making love Everything you like to do is not difficult. the moral of that story? Living Together was invited by her friend, Fran Truffaut to screen at the Cannes Film Festival, in Critics Week. Part drama, part documentary, this film focuses on the Tipton Three, a trio of British Muslims who were heading for a wedding in Pakistan but were captured on the Afghanistan border and then imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.
