Coppola captivates on 'Antoinette' set



GOOD MORNING: "She's a force of nature -- an auteur, a singular vision. (It's) stunning to watch her." It was "Marie Antoinette" producer Ross Katz, in Paris praising director and scripter Sofia Coppola. He described intimate scenes between Kirsten Dunst (Marie Antoinette) and Jason Schwartzman (Louis XVI), giant outdoor scenes with 40 horses and dozens of soldiers, and a sexy, comic bedroom scene between Rip Torn ( King Louis XV) and Asia Argento (Madame Du Barry)-- "one of the wildest on-screen couplings" -- which was filmed in France's National Archives. The film company had entire access to Versailles after Sofia met with its director general. Of course, Coppola and Katz are not strangers, having teamed successfully on "Lost In Translation." Francis Coppola, an exec producer of this American Zoetrope film, visited the "Marie Antoinette's'" location and Katz says, "he helped me solving some problems. But Sofia, she marches to her own drummer There's one boss on the set -- with quiet elegance, Sofia. She never loses sight of what the emotional core of the scene is." As for Dunst, Katz praises her as "one of the finest actors I've ever worked with -- changing eras four to nine times a day in the film covering 19 years." Katz predicts teenagers will want to see this film-well as adults. ... Torn also praised Sofia -- and his admiration includes her performance in "The Godfather III," which he called "the capstone of the film." When I told him reviews for Sofia's acting were definitely negative, he answered, "They (reviewers) don't know anything." The multi-award-winning Torn who has played "Hamlet" and "Macbeth" three times, admitted this film "is a moving experience for me." He's wound four pix in a row and next joins Dennis Quaidand Rene Russo in the remake (Hank Fonda, Lucille Ball) of "Yours, Mine and Ours." And Rip also voices one of the key roles in the animated "Bee Movie." He's beezy. (Sorry.)[/list]

I read somewhere that the casting was quirky.

Like LIT, it's a rather 'weird' movie. The kind of review I want to give will certainly be semi-spoilerish; so I'm going to refrain.. Go see it, I think it's worth a trip o the theater.
