Planetarium Review

  • Post author:

I was really excited about the prospect of Natalie working on a French film, particularly one directed by Rebecca Zlotowski whose Grand Central is fantastic. Unfortunately, this is one of my least favourite Natalie films. The story has a strong connection to the dead, but its the film that is D.O.A. It certainly looks handsome, and the performances (particularly Natalie and Emmanual Salinger) are solid at the very least.

-Talking about Planetarium, Vanity Fair France features an article and interview with Lily-Rose Depp this month, in which is included a nice reference to how Natalie played an important role in the selection of the Johnny Depp´s daughter for the movie:

She (Natalie) was who suggested the name of Lily-Rose Melody Depp to Rebecca Zlotowski, the Planetarium director. “Natalie sent me a picture of her while I was looking for a French speaking American to play her little sister aged 13, tells Vanity Fair in the latter. The resemblance between the two was quite disturbing. “The director is gone to meet her:” In May, we met. We walked in Paris, had a drink, bought a few things, she recalls. I liked her light, her grace, her femininity voluntary and no clutch. The cast stopped there.
