Elsa impose son style

Son talent lui permet de tirer
sa juste épingle du jeu dans la pièce « 2+2 »

Par Thierry Cadet

        Pour      

Il y a dix ans, ELSA a raccroché le micro pour se diriger vers la photographie (e-lunghini.com), et surtout vers la comédie, une discipline dans laquelle l’actrice Elsa Lunghini rayonne, forte de quelques jolis projets. L’an dernier, cette dernière décrochait le « Prix d’interprétation féminine » pour son rôle dans le téléfilm « Parole contre parole« ; cette année c’est au théâtre qu’on la retrouve, pour la première fois de sa carrière. Elsa Lunghini est actuellement à l’affiche de la pièce de Cyril Gely et d’Eric Rouquette, « 2+2 » (mise en scène par Jeoffrey Bourdennet assisté d’Antoine Courtray), actuellement au Théâtre Tristan Bernard de Paris.

Selon Les chanteuses échevelées, « aller voir Elsa Lunghini au théâtre c’est comme donner rendez-vous à une « vieille » amie de collège sur qui le temps n’a décidément pas de prise, au point qu’on pourrait parfois croire qu’elle est la fille de ses grisonnants partenaires dont l’un joue (ou plutôt surjoue) le rôle de son mari…« . A la même heure, trente ans après son tube sus-cité, en somme.

« C’est une sympathique petite comédie bourgeoise d’1h20 sur l’échangisme politiquement correct. Ça se passe dans une maison de campagne. On joue au tennis, on se découvre, on s’étonne, on s’afflige, on se rabiboche. Quelques répliques font mouche. La salle rit, rit… Elsa tire sa juste épingle du jeu, sachant modérer ses effets dans une sobriété évinçant les pièges que tend ce genre de sujet« . A ses côtés, trois partenaires lui donnent la réplique. « Jolies performances de Claire Nebout et de José PaulEric Savin devra alléger un peu sa partition. Nous n’avons pas boudé notre relatif plaisir. Jour de neige ou pas, dans un grand pull qui vous protège… Cela vaut le déplacement !« .

En 1987, ELSA était n°1 du Top 50, durant huit semaines, avec « T’en va pas« .

Elle n’a alors que 13 ans et devient la plus jeune artiste à atteindre la première place. Elle déclare : « Je jette un regard tendre et bienveillant sur mes jeunes années en chanson. Elles m’ont permis d’être là aujourd’hui. Le début de ma vie comme actrice me rattrape aujourd’hui. Mais je n’ai pas fermé la porte à la chanson« .

ET AUJOURD’HUI ?

Aujourd’hui, Elsa Lunghini aspire à une vie plus tranquille que par le passé. Elle partage discrètement sa vie avec Aurélien, un décorateur et constructeur de décors qu’elle a épousé il y a six ans, et avec qui elle entretient une vie de liberté… « Avec mon mari, on a un poids lourd, un quinze tonnes aménagé avec lequel on parcourt le monde. Il avait déjà ce projet quand on s’est rencontrés, et moi j’avais très envie aussi d’une vie libre comme ça. Alors dès qu’on ne travaille pas ni l’un ni l’autre, on part. On ne pense qu’à ça. Et on fait du son, de l’image, de la vidéo… »

Son fils Luigi Kröner, âgé de bientôt 25 ans,  poursuit une brillante carrière de coach sportif particulier et semi-particulier (Kickboxing, Muay Thai et Fitness), dont sa maman est très fière.

When in Europe or US, we are walking proudly in our winter coats

Eyes look your last
Arms take your last embrace
And lips oh you the doors of breath
Seal with a righteous kiss
The rest is silence… (Romeo and Juliet)

Sarita Allison talks about… Eva Green

Sarita Allison talks about her career, Penny Dreadful and Working with Eva Green

Penny Dreadful’s Key Prosthetic Make-Up Artist Sarita Allison is a double BAFTA winner and a fan favorite among Dreadfuls. Interactive, mysterious and gracious to fans, each Dreadful awaits in bated breath for her social media updates on what’s happening on set of the show. While in the middle of production for season 3, we caught up with Sarita for an exclusive interview to chat about her career, Penny Dreadful and working with Eva Green. Get to know the London-based genius behind The Creature, Witches and The Werewolf as she takes us behind the scenes of the show and tell us what to expect on season 3…

A lot of Penny Dreadful fans already know you by name but could you tell us more about yourself ?

I am the Key Prosthetic Make-Up Artist on Penny Dreadful and I work closely alongside Nick Dudman, the HOD. I apply the prosthetic makeups with Nick or by myself with the exception of Sembene’s facial scarring which is done by the make-up department.

The design and look of the characters is a collaboration between Nick and I. The final look and maintenance of the actors on set is all part of my job. I am a Make-Up Designer in my own right and I have the versatility of also being a beauty make-up artist. That skill has proven extremely beneficial whilst working on Penny Dreadful. Nick wanted someone to work with him who had that versatility because we were not creating rubber monsters. We were creating characters. I am incredibly passionate about my work and always strive to improve and be the best I possibly can. Trying to have a work / life balance is really important as this type of job can all consume if you allow it. Practicing yoga is part of my life and helps me focus and switch off from work at the same time.


Not a lot of people know that you used to be a high fashion model. Could you tell us more about it ?

Modelling was something I wanted to do when I was at school, you know a teenage dream. I used to have very long hair and one day I felt like a change so I went to a salon in King’s Road in London and had it all cut off much to the shock of my mother. Several people suggested I should try modelling as I had a “good face”. So I pursued my dream and joined a small modelling agency in Covent Garden. The agency sent me to see various photographers and one in particular liked my “look” and gave me an editorial job. That particular photographer said my look was very current and I would get better exposure if I switch to a bigger agency. He personally drove me into Bond Street to see the agency Premier who immediately took me on. Within a few months, I started a contract with an agency in Tokyo and worked there for four months. My modelling career spanned over five years working in London, Milan, Tokyo, Madrid and Hamburg.



You’ve worked on various fashion shows, magazine covers and editorials, album covers, music videos, etc. and you’ve worked with the likes of Bjӧrk, Issey Miyake, Vivienne Westwood, and not a lot of people know this, but you even worked on one of the late Alexander McQueen’s iconic fashion shows (Spring/Summer 1997). In a lot of ways, you can say that you’ve worked with the crème de la crème of the fashion industry. What was your favorite memory from that period of your career ?

Those were fun days. I worked on a lot of fashion shows during that time. There were many memorable moments. One year, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood won the Designer of the Year Award together. I happened to be working on the McQueen show and it was just an incredible experience being at the Royal Albert Hall witnessing two great fashion designers win an award together.

Madonna Is Being Honored By GLAAD

Madonna Will Receive Prestigious GLAAD Honor For Her LGBTQ Community Support

By for W Mag

Madonna‘s support for the LGBTQ community goes back way before 1990’s « Vogue, » but almost three decades later she is being officially recognized for her contribution to it. This May 4, the pop icon will receive GLAAD’s Advocate for Change Award for being an activist, friend and hero to the LGBTQ community.

“Madonna always has and always will be the LGBTQ community’s greatest ally and it is only fitting to honor and celebrate our biggest advocate at GLAAD’s biggest event ever,” GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a press statement. “From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted. Her music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years and her affirming words and actions have changed countless hearts and minds.”

GLAAD‘s announcement also included Madonna shining a light on queer dancers in 1991’s documentary Truth or Dare and that time she wore a Boy Scout uniform in 2013 to the GLAAD Media Awards to protest the organization’s ban on openly gay members and leaders, where she joked, « I wanted to be a boy scout but they wouldn’t let me join. » « Most people are not comfortable with things or people that they perceive as different from themselves, » she said, « and I would wager that if we just took the time to get to know each other — do our own investigation [and] looked beneath the surface of things — then we would find that we are not so different after all. »

Madonna’s impending award from GLAAD comes in the same year in which she is serving as an ambassador of the Stonewall Inn for its 50th anniversary.

On New Year’s Eve, she made a surprise appearance at historic gay bar, where she delivered a similar message to the crowd, saying, “If we truly took the time to get to know one another we would find that we all bleed the same color and we all need to love and be loved. Let’s remember who and what we are fighting for — ourselves, for each other, but truly and most importantly, what are we fighting for ? Let’s take a minute to reflect on how we can bring more love and peace into 2019, let’s look at how we can bring random acts of kindness. Maybe we can find an opening to bring the light in. Are you ready to do that ?”

Nicky larson et le parfum de Cupidon

Affiche

Nicky Larson est le meilleur des gardes du corps, un détective privé hors-pair. Il est appelé pour une mission à hauts risques : récupérer le parfum de Cupidon, un parfum qui rendrait irrésistible celui qui l’utilise…

Philippe Lacheau accorde un soin quasi-maniaque à la direction artistique.

Larson est probablement le film le plus sympathique de son auteur depuis les Babysitting, loin des naufrages récents en matière d’adaptation de BD, comme celle de Gaston Lagaffe. C’est une authentique comédie générationnelle pour ceux qui admiraient le club Dorothée et qui trouveront donc l’esprit et le ton niais des sitcoms AB. Les apartés pseudo clownesques entre Nicky et son associée qui joue du marteau, donnent vraiment dans le ton d’Hélène et les garçons. C’est un peu le jeu des comédiens qui donne cette impression, mais qu’importe, ce qui compte dans cette tentative d’hommage, c’est la générosité de la démarche. Point de tentative de récupération de la part de Philippe Lacheau qui aime son personnage et fait ce qu’il peut pour retranscrire les traits limités du héros nippon… De l’obsession sexuelle, beaucoup, la gâchette facile mais calculée, il en joue, de l’humour charpenté, Larson n’en manque pas…

A vrai dire, les gags de quiproquo et les situations ahurissantes sont typiques de l’œuvre de Lacheau, qui aime bien fourrer ses personnages dans des positions gênantes et donc totalement désopilantes, dans ce qui constitue une cascade de blagues ubuesques mais parvenant à relever la très terne réalisation en comédie assaisonnée.

Dumbo , just differently

Dumbo Gets His Name Differently
Than In The Original Movie

In Disney’s live-action version of Dumbo, the character of Dumbo gets his name differently than in the original animated film. In the animated movie, Mrs. Jumbo the elephant receives her baby from the stork, but the other animals see the baby’s large ears and start cruelly referring to him as Dumbo.

In the animated movie, Dumbo spends much of his young life being taunted by the other circus animals due to his oversized ears. However, he soon learns that his ears, his greatest fault, are his greatest asset: They give him the ability to fly. In the new live-action version of the movie, Dumbo still has the oversized ears, as seen in the first look that Disney showed at 2018’s CinemaCon. However, the new film, directed by Tim Burton, will have some differences. First, it will have an original story, one focused on a circus family lead by Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) who gets a new job working for his old circus boss, Max Medici (Danny DeVito). The live-action film will also introduce Michael Keaton as an entrepreneur who wants to make Dumbo part of his new business, Dreamland.

These are only some of the differences between the Dumbo animated film and the live-action movie. In an interview with Screen Rant on the set of Dumbo, DeVito states that the origin of Dumbo’s name is also different in the new movie:

What I found was really great was the mama elephant, Mrs. Jumbo, and baby Jumbo, ’cause you know he doesn’t get his name Dumbo until they… there’s a big brouhaha in the tent and the « J » falls and the « D » falls. I don’t know if that’s in the… this is different. This is more of a Tim Burton-esque way of doing it, it’s really cool.


One other key difference between the original Dumbo and the new one is that the animals don’t talk in the new film. In the original feature, Dumbo is the only animal that doesn’t speak; he is mute, which is also part of how he got his cruel nickname. The live-action Dumbo is more of a re-imagining of the original story, though, rather than a remake, setting it apart from Disney’s previous live-action remakes, such as CinderellaBeauty and the Beast and The Jungle Book. Disney has more plans for future live-action remakes, too, including the much-anticipated Aladdin, featuring Will Smith in the iconic role of the genie. Here’s an interesting fact, though: Smith previously chose to pass on a role in Dumbo.

Burton and Disney always seem to be a match made in movie heaven, so Dumbo should still have some of Burton’s quirkiness while managing to tell a heart-warming story about an elephant who learns to believe in himself. Fans of both Disney and Burton will guarantee to make this movie a box office success, especially for those who can’t wait to see how Burton depicts the « Pink Elephants » scene with a drunk Timothy the Mouse from the animated feature.
