A podcast about acting -- just the work. by Peter Rinaldi

Back to One, Episode 172 (A Titane Special Episode): Agathe Russell and Vincent Lindon

Julia Ducournau’s new film Titane is, on many levels, an overwhelming cinematic experience. If you’re like me, it might take a second viewing to begin to fully appreciate the astounding work Agathe Rousselle and Vincent Lindon deliver (no pun intended) to us in this film. Lindon is a seasoned actor with decades of accolades and experience in French cinema, and Rousselle is a wet-behind-the-ears newcomer making her feature film debut. But, serendipitously, as you’ll gather from this discussion, that is precisely what each of them needed in the other to energize their own performances. They talk about facing fears, letting go, finding freedom within restriction, and the instinctual, trancelike experience of filming that intense final scene. Plus much more!
