Behind the scenes (161)

Simindis kundzuli
Year: 2014
Mariam Buturishvili said the biggest difficulty for her during filming was the scene where she takes a dip in the river completely naked. "During the shooting of the last shots, in the beginning of November, I had to dive into the water. It was very cold. I was freezing," she said.
Ilo Ilo
Year: 2013
Koh Jia Ler, the first-time child actor in the award-winning local film Ilo Ilo, was caned for real several times in two takes while shooting a scene.
It is a literal example of how director Anthony Chen cracks the whip to achieve his vision.
Says Jia Ler, 12, whose mother was fine with the caning since she used to cane him when he was younger: "Anthony talked to me about it and I was fine with it. It was painful, but it's okay, because I know he wants everything as real as possible. The caning is just a small thing to me.
La danza de la realidad
Year: 2013
In the scene where young Alejandro’s mother smears his body in black paint then strips herself naked, both Pamela Flores and Jeremias Herskovits were supposed to be totally nude, however Jeremias’s father worked in a school and feared agreeing to a scene where his naked 12-year-old son had his whole body smeared in paint by a naked adult woman would get him sacked. He begged the director to change the script and Jodorowsky agreed to let Jeremias wear underwear for the scene.
Little Thirteen
Year: 2012
To accompany the underage actresses Muriel Wimmer (Sarah) and Antonia Putiloff (Charly) during the shooting, the director Christian Klandt and his film team were supported by two sex education specialists from pro familia Berlin. For the 16 and 17 year old actresses, sex scenes in front of the camera were completely new territory. The experts were on the set for all the sexual performances to accompany, advise and support them. However, pro familia Berlin only gave its approval after reading the script and after preliminary discussions with the filmmakers and actresses. "It was very important to us to compare the content and messages of the film with the stance of pro familia. Is it safe that young people are not exposed, defamed and stereotyped? That the negative image of pornographic youth is avoided?" says sex educator and counselor Petra Winkler. On the set, they were always approachable for the young actresses, with whom they had built up a good level of trust in the run-up to the shoot. "We were not governesses," says Winkler. "The girls weren't forced to play in the film, they wanted to be part of it. Still, nudity, sex and intimacy in front of the camera were new and sometimes borderline. "In one scene, one actress was so insecure that she stopped shooting," the pro familia expert describes a situation. "It helped her that I was there as an outsider to bring calm into the scene and could talk to her."
Un amour de jeunesse
Year: 2011
You chose Lola Créton as the actress to represent yourself. Tell me about her – this film could make the next French star.
She was 16 when we began shooting, and I wanted to do something unusual. I'm always annoyed when films have actresses who are 27 playing teenagers. It always breaks the spell for me. So I wanted a real teenager here, even though this film does then span another 10 years. I thought it'd be a nice change to see someone playing older, even if they did look a bit young in the later stages. But Lola is so delicate and shy.
Like all French actresses, she seems very happy to get her clothes off.
Aha. You English always love that. I can say that for her it was actually a big deal. But what's amazing is that, when the cameras rolled, she was free and sensuous like a cat. It was as if she was discovering her own sexuality before our eyes, but, as soon as the filming stopped, she'd retreat behind sheets, clothes immediately.
She has a little craziness about her, like a young Adjani, but she's so shy with press, with me, with her mum. She's not at ease with words. I think she truly can only express herself through acting. It's her vocation.
Year: 2011
It should be noted that with her chief operator, the director opted for long shots so as not to frustrate children in their game: few shots, but very long. The camera object had to be forgotten, the director was always at their side, spoke to them during the catch, entered the frame.
The scene, so delicate, of the nakedness of Laure and the revelation resulting from it, has been conscientiously put in place by Céline Sciamma. This scene is fundamental and Zoé Héran, from the script, knew he would have to turn naked. Her parents were present at the time of filming and this intense moment could only exist in the image if they gave their Agreement in view of the filmed sequence.
Un poison violent
Year: 2010
Clara Augarde, who was 14-year-old during filming, plays Anna, the heroine of the film. A difficult role that the girl holds perfectly, despite the difficulty that a few nude scenes could pose to her. "One of the scenes, I refused to do it. It's a body double. At my age, we don't like to undress, so in front of a camera, it's a bit complicated. For another scene, I had agreed to play it. A lot of people were counting on me. So even though it was very hard, I had to play it."
Year: 2010
Abbey Hoes thinks afterwards that she could not have done some nude scenes she had done in the past. "I've been on since I was fourteen because of my role in the film Tirza."
The 21-year-old actress talks with Grazia that there are people who think that "it should be" when you are an actress. "But I do not think that being a dirty porn site is part of the job, if I wanted to, I would have become a porn actress."
"I do not act so that a boy can rely on me," says Hoes.
Cover often finds it unnecessary that a woman is completely naked in sex scenes. "I only agree with nude if it is artificially justifiable, but in the past I have done nude scenes that I now think: I should not have done that better."
My Queen Karo
Year: 2009
How did you come to find such a perfect actress (Anna Franziska Jaeger) to play Karo, who really is the centre of the film?
Dorothée Van Den Berghe : It's a long story! I saw her in a shop and I knew it was her, she was exactly what I wanted. I really followed this girl, and (kept tabs on her). The film took two years to put together, and by that time, she was too old for the part as I had written. She had breasts already, and the part I had written was definitely for a child who was younger than that. So.. I held auditions and auditions, but I never found that quality, what I found in her. I rewrote the script, then, and we had to rethink how to shoot the nudity, for example, because of her breasts. But I think it puts the film into a better perspective, a child that age.
Ostorozhno, deti!
Year: 2009
Aleksandr Siguev, interviewed about the bathhouse scene:
-In the movie "Ostorozhno, deti!" you were in the scene in the bathhouse, where you and Vsevolod Nikolaev had to walk naked on the set-scene - from morning till night. Furthermore, the film crew is such a small crowd of different people, and all this is filmed on a movie camera.
Were not you ashamed to walk naked? Or on the contrary - you were very happy and "cool" (funny) to stay in such an unusual situation?
-I did my job. As soon as we emerged, we were immediately wrapped in towels. We have no time to realize if we're having "fun"! 5 night shifts in a row is not a joke, believe me!
