Re: RIP Jean-Paul Belmondo

I always wondered to which point he was a humorist and which more of an over-enthusiast. I loved the manly drama he always pulled off. Without a beard, mostly.

For drama, A bout de souffle (Breathless), his first movie, with Jean Seberg; and Le professionel, with that memorable Morricone soundtrack kicking in the showdown scene in the above click.
Some of his stunts: the helicopter ladder (several times), but he also did most of this:



Between humor and shtick, too many to name, but he did tend towards slapstick even in the cop movies.


Quite an era for French movies. Being sick, I guess Delon will go pretty soon too, and after Bardot there won't be many left... though Deneuve started in the 1960s too.

We had Louis de Funès, but Jean Reno is still kicking around

He did his own stunts till 60, kudos. His schtick was charismatic, frantic...it's hard to pull off.

I love this too, it's the complete opposite, I think:



And then of course - current wine maker, Pierre Richard. Charming too.

And another great piece of film score/song:



I had Pierre Richard as more of a 70's actor based on his pairings with Depardieu and these great Veber comedies, but indeed, he is 87... I guess it makes sense, his acting is "of the stage", and pure comics take a while to break through.

The soundtrack to Trintignant is fab, I been meaning to get sheetmusic for ever.

Yeah, Pierre Richard is a master of a mix of naieve, nonchallant and cringe, sooo him. I prefer him to Woody Allen.

Re: RIP Jean-Paul Belmondo

Not a bad last goodbye pump-wise, for an actor. And one last blast of that Morricone score:
https://video.lefigaro.fr/figaro/vid...professionnel/
And from the national honor, to the funeral mass at at Saint-Germain des Prés, a glorious abbey of French kings and queens.
Way to go, Bébel!

Re: RIP Jean-Paul Belmondo

I know its RIP thread but Belmondo had a fascinating life, pretty sure he will get a good place up there.

The only actor who could match his character and charisma is ofc Italian Adriano Celentano

Shame they never played together, altho considering both are extreme alphas, I guess it would be impossible.
