David Bowie, Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman in the video for The Next Day.
The video was directed by Floria Sigismundi – the photographer and filmmaker – who has directed Bowie before. She also directed The Runaways and the video for Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors”.
Bowie and Oldman previously joined forces in 1995, when they recorded a duet of Bowie’s “You’ve Been Around” for guitarist Reeves Gabrels’ album The Sacred Squall Of Now. They worked together again in 1996 on the Jean-Michel Basquiat biopic Basquiat with Bowie portraying Andy Warhol and Oldman in the role of a fellow painter loosely based on Julian Schnabel.
Josephine Baker c. 1933.
My one criticism of Midnight in Paris was the Baker character was only referenced fleetingly.
Wait, I have another criticism that just occurred to me. The end where he meets Gabrielle played by Léa Seydoux (with a golden glow around her hair) on the bridge? You know, where she says she doesn’t mind walking in the rain. With hair like that, in real life she would hate to get it wet in the rain.
Yes, I am not in a romantic mood at the moment. When I am in a romantic mood, Midnight in Paris is flawless and I imagine running away with Marion Cotillard or Léa Seydoux. Can never decide which as they both have their attractions.
I admire this woman tremendously for her craft, beauty and style. Marion Cotillard photographed by the versatile Tim Walker for W, 2012.
Marion currently lives with French actor and director Guillaume Canet. The couple prefer to live a simple lifestyle, and they are often spotted in cafes and shopping together in Paris. Neither star discusses their relationship with the media, although photos of the couple being affectionate regularly surface in the European tabloids. The birth of the couple’s first child, a boy named Marcel, was announced on 20 May 2011.
She is a fan of Radiohead and Canadian singer Hawksley Workman; she has appeared in two of the latter’s music videos. She is also a supporter of the English football club Leeds United, a passion she developed after her compatriot Eric Cantona’s spell at the club in the early 1990s.
