Interview de Nick Nicholson (page 9)

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.

Did you ever have echoes from the US about your Filipino career, or the kind of reactions these films got there or elsewhere?

Max used to send me regular news items from Variety magazine... the reviews were mostly bland, yet not really unkind.

Your last movie is apparently "Birds of Passage" (2000), with Stacy Keach and Charlotte de Turckheim, the latter happening to be a fairly famous stand-up comedian in France. How did you get into that venture?

Oly Laperal from RS Video got me that gig. Oly was trying to set up a servicing section with his company. Along those lines, anybody who might want to shoot here should check him out, as he as the most and the best film equipment in Asia, and he is a real easy guy to get along with.

Will we ever see you acting in a film again? Did you completely stop working in the movie industry?

Unfortunately, I can't work in film anymore due to heart disease. I have a had several heart attacks since Birds of Passage and my doctor made me retire.

We know you're writing a book, "Fish Heads and Rice", about B-Movie making in the Philippines (which just means that any visitor of our website would be a potential reader!). Could you tell us a bit more about it?

It is a "no holds barred" book about making "B" movies in the Philippines. This will deal with in depth descriptions about what it was like to work in these films, as well as the more than colourful characters who worked as actors, extras, or staff. Some who read will say, "impossible!" but I guarantee everything in the book is true!

Well... here is the end, so, to conclude, in the name of all the members of our team (and for all the people who will be truly glad to find this interview on our website), I would like to thank you warmly one more time for having been so open and so friendly Mr Nicholson. Best wishes to you and those you love!

Please, just call me Nick! It was a pleasure to do the interview, and thanks for your interest! It means a lot to me!
