Francois Cluzet Interview
What did you like in Mechanics of Shadow ?
Incarnating a Mr. All-World stuck in a Kafkaesque situation and who finds, by dint of cash the blows, the energy to get by. We hope never to live such a story, but it is a fantastic playground for an actor! My role is to reveal to the audience their potential of fantasy and emotion, to exalt their courage.
I am scared, I cry or I burst out laughing for them. And I have to do it with the greatest sincerity, otherwise they have the impression of being taken for fools.
Live all these lives, it helps to better understand who we are?
I still have no answer to this question! Those who love me speak about me very kindly. If I do not know who I am, I know at least where I come from. There is the education we receive, and the one we give ourselves.
When I decided to become an actor, my childhood made me more inclined to be a thug. But I wondered where it would take me to 50 years. To die after being an artist seemed to me a lot more flattering.
What is your view of your career?
I tell myself that I did not commit too many nanars! I thank my parents for making me neither too ugly nor too beautiful: it allowed me to play all the roles, and never to know unemployment in forty years. I am proud to have inspired talented directors to work with me. And continue to inspire the new generation. Passion makes everything possible.
Popular actor, it’s the icing on the cake?
My childhood dream was to become famous. My career choices were dictated by my fantasy of success. He arrived late, but he arrived. I am a man and a comedian happy.

Your character is almost mute. Is it more difficult to make your body speak more than words?
I do not believe in dialogue, at least in the register of drama and thriller. The game is above all to take possession of space, even before opening the mouth.
I learned that in the theater, where we talk when we can not do otherwise, and I applied this idea to the cinema. I’m suspicious of the pleonasm on the screen. When people identify with the film, the aftershocks come naturally to them. Not to highlight is a way to respect their intelligence, and invite them to participate.
Did you feel one day on the verge of burnout ?
I have never been overloaded with roles to the point of having the impression of drowning me. I’m not crazy about work, and most of all I’m unable to do filming.
It takes me several weeks to get into a movie. My acting pleasure is to immerse myself in a character, to try to find an internal logic, to create the atmosphere in which it will evolve. Because I need to know that my instrument will be ready and perfectly tuned when the director asks me to interpret my score.
This allows to play collective in a plateau. I have a very “Chabrolian” concept of cinema: we are only good at fraternity and the generosity of teamwork. It is not because you hold the lead role that everything should be around you. The emotion of the final scene of Do not tell anyone, I remember finding it in the compassionate gaze of a plateau technician.
What do you like so much in the actor’s job?
It gives me the feeling of existing. Playing is easy. To live his character is another story. For the public to work, do not pretend. I do not believe in the emotion made by the brain, too subjective, but the sincerity that comes from the guts, organic and universal. An actor is like a canvas of Francis Bacon: a body totally open and in which one can penetrate. I would like to be as transparent as that. You have to have the courage to go bare, to give up all ego. It can be scary. Not for me.
