Two Interviews: Jean-Jacques Annaud and Louis Schwartzberg…

…the directors of Two Brothers and America’s Heart and Soul, respectively.

I’ve been scraping away at the hours for time to write reviews and edit this stuff, and I finally decided to post “almost-there” versions of the interviews, since the films may not be in theatres much longer.

Anyway, I enjoyed both conversations, and I hope they shed some light on the films for you.

Jean-Jacques Annaud

Louis Schwartzberg

Coming soon, my interviews with Patrice Leconte (Man on the Train, Intimate Strangers) and the Chairman of the NEA, Dana Gioia.

    Jeff: I didn’t realize I was a “mild” fan of Annaud until I read your interview with him to realize the body of his work (I have yet to see “Two Brothers”). I really enjoyed Rose & Enemy, although I’ve always felt both fell just short of something, but I haven’t been able to put my finger on it. Maybe it’s Annaud’s ideal that tolerance will ‘fix all things’ kind of belief that creeps out of these movies. Any thoughts or am I way off-base here?
