The Funhouse interview with Cedric Klapisch

Two clips are now up from my interview with French filmmaker Cedric Klapisch, who was in town a few weeks back to promote the NYC opening of his film Paris. Here, we talk about his scripting films with large ensembles and separate plot threads:

And now for the fun part of the discussion. We talk about his eclectic and very catholic (with a lowercase “c”) use of music in his films:

With two great examples I used on the show. First, a kinetic moment that mixes four different genres, from When the Cat’s Away (1996):

And a very adorable moment when two middle-aged characters rock out to Patti Smith’s “People Have the Power” in the family drama/comedy Un Air de Famille (1996).
