Interview de Pierre Tremblay (page 4)

Si nous aimons rire d'un certain cinéma déviant, nous sommes très loin de mépriser les hommes et les femmes qui s'y sont impliqués ou compromis. Il nous a ainsi paru enrichissant de faire raconter le nanar et son univers par les gens qui l'ont vécu de l'intérieur. La diversité des intervenants et de leurs réponses nous a rendu encore plus proches du cinéma que nous aimons : vous découvrirez, au fil des entretiens que ces différentes vedettes ont bien voulu nous accorder, des informations précieuses pour le cinéphile et le cinéphage, des anecdotes cocasses et, en esquisse, le portrait attachant de personnages souvent hauts en couleur.

Pierre Tremblay (page 4)


In 2001 I was invited to act in director Lam Wah Chuen's first movie. It was called 'Accidental Fire (aka Runaway Pistol)' and won a few awards at Taiwan's Golden Horse Festival. My performance had nothing to do with that. I had decided to show as little emotion as possible, since that had worked so well in Tsui Hark's 1981 movie, but the results were disappointing. Empty of expression my face seemed out of place. I went from one extreme to another : from over-acting to not enough.

In 2003 I was invited to act in the very first movie of a young director who showed tremendous talent. The movie was called 'You Shoot, I Shoot', and the director was Pang Ho Cheung.

My role was in one scene only, I was playing the voice of the poster of young ... Alain Delon. Rarely have I had so much fun ! My 'poster' was talking in French to the main hero of the film, Eric Kot, who was answering me in Cantonese. Of course I also wrote my dialog, being the only French-speaker in the team, and following the director's indications I almost ended up repeating myself to cover the time frames he wanted. And even though my voice bears no resemblance to Alain Delon's, I was able to 'France'-ify my Québec accent enough to make it credible to the Hong Kong audience. So I had temporarily found a middle ground : I act with my voice and not with my face.

My 2003 interview with Radio-Canada that you found got me some work giving summer chronicles for a few years at the '1ère Chaîne', then I worked as stringer with MTV-Asia again for a few more years; and my work at the radio and as voice-over artist in English, French and Cantonese continues. I still hope that one day I'll be able to act well, before I reach 70 ? Please don't wait.

I will answer your last two questions as one : my advice and looking back on my career so far.

To all of you wanting to become an actor/ress, don't do like I did ! Take classes, learn the craft first.

To all of you who feel a talent for something as yet undefined : only experience, patience and dedication can bring it out. Good luck.
