French cinema: conversations in a kitchen

As French stars invaded London for the festival Rendez-vous with French Cinema, euronews spoke to the darling of both British and French cinemas, Kristin Scott Thomas. In her no-nonsense style, she reminded our correspondent Ali May of the differences between the two cinemas, quoting fellow-actor Sophie Marceau that French films are like conversations in a kitchen. “The French film world is very much a world rather than an industry,” she said, comparing it with British cinema which is more box office focused. “People consider themselves to be artists.” The star of the English Patient and Four Weddings and a Funeral has her new film In the House in cinemas now.
