THE LOOK
2011, Piffl Medien, 90 min, Germany, Dir: Angelina Maccarone

Narrative filmmaker Angelina Maccarone (UNVEILED, VIVERE) makes an impressive foray into documentary with this endlessly fascinating portrait of screen icon Charlotte Rampling. Focused less on Rampling's biographical details and more on the actress's decidedly non-conformist personality, the film is segmented into free-wheeling conversations between Rampling and various friends, including artists Peter Lindbergh and Paul Aster and poet Frederick Seidel, and offers insight into Rampling's feelings on topics that range from aging to desire, from death to her love of photography. Clips from the British actress's most famous films - including THE DAMNED, THE NIGHT PORTER, GEORGY GIRL and STARDUST MEMORIES - are interspersed throughout. Official selection of the Cannes Film Festival 2011. In English, French and German with English subtitles.
