As promised, some news for 2015

Hello everybody,

As promised, some news for 2015.

First of all I would like to mention that I, as well as my colleagues on "Une Journée Particulière", were shattered, shocked and terrified by the recent events these last two weeks. We cannot pretend nothing happened...

As the politics say, there will be a time "before" and a time "after" these events... It was hard for us to play that particular night even after dedicating this performance in memory of the victims. We were unable to perform this beautiful play correctly.

I am happy to announce that we will start « Une Journée Particulière »  again at the Petit Montparnasse as from 20th February 2015 at 19.00 and 21.00. I have been fighting since three years for its existence. I am, therefore, proud of the path which this play follows.

To perform this play today with its contents such as homophobia and fascism is nearly a militant act.

You were so many to come and see the play (again)....for some of you for the seventh time... I wanted to thank you again for this moment of sharing, for your loyalty and your kindness.

I discovered, with some delay, the beautiful presents which you sent by mail. I am deeply moved by them. They are all very nice, well thought through and correspond to what I like and to my favourite colours. You know me well by now. These kind gestures always come as a surprise to me. 

I also wanted to thank you for your birthday cards as well as your wishes for the New Year.

I will produce a beautiful new play this summer at Avignon« Un Nouveau Départ », from Antoine Rault and directed by the great Christophe Lidon, director of "Une Journée Parituclière", with whom we have created a respectful relationship and friendship.

I would like to thank him for presenting Antoine Rault to me who gave me the opportunity to play this fine character. It is a difficult role to play but passionate and funny. I will be joined by two great and surprising actors, Adèle Bernier who plays my daughter and Christian Vadim.

Despite all, I want to wish you a beautiful and kind 2015. Let my positive thoughts be with you wherever you are.

Let this violence result in listening more actively to each other, loving and protecting each other even more than before.

Message from Corinne Touzet - 20th September 2014

Hello everyone,

We have nearly finished rehearsing, the theatre tour will shortly start...!

I wanted to leave you this message to let you know that I will be delighted to meet up with you again on stage this Winter. I am looking forward to seeing those again who have watched the play before and wrote to me they'll be coming back....and those who have been waiting since last Summer for us to move closer to their homes as Avignon was a long way out and of course expensive...

These theatre tours represent for me a moment of sharing and meeting up with you gives me a lot of joy :-)

We feel feverish and are worried and happy to start up our characters and this play again. We have not played it since over a year now and we are anxious to start!!!

I have received a tremendous lot of mail these last three months. Unfortunately I have not been able to treat it. I am sorry but this last Summer was full of pitfall for me and my family... and September arrived without me noticing!!!

I promise to catch up with it before the end of October!!!

I also wanted to let you know that I am participating in the writing of a scenario of my first movie as a film director. It will be hard to find the funds and distribution partners as well as co-producers for 2016, but as I always say "you should risk some to get some"!

See you soon!

Corinne Touzet.

Hello everyone,

As I have not been able to write to you before, please find below some news.

I am really touched as « la Malédiction de Julia »  was viewed by 3 676 000  people, which means a real success for this thriller with Georges Corraface and Bruno Slagmulder. 

« Un crime oublié »  was broadcasted a second time with success. This allowed the public channel to arrive third in the viewing figures of the first part of the evening. It obtained 12,4% of the market share with, on average, 3 092 000  viewers. (PS In October 2012 when it was first broadcasted « Un crime oublié »  was viewed by 4.29 million people which meant 18% of the public.)

These were two heavy and difficult movies, with magnificent parts and you were, again, present to view them, for which I am very thankful!

I am currently making a lot of publicity for « Un si joli mensonge » , which will be broadcasted in France on 28th May on France 2. I play together with Francis Renaud, Emma Colberti and Anémone. 

· I participate in the programme « Grand 8 » by Laurence Ferrari on D8 on 27th May in the morning.

· I will also record « Les Grosses têtes », a programme by P. Bouvard, on RTL on 26th May which will be broadcasted I believe he next day.

· I am equally invited on « C’est au programme » by Sophie Davant on 28th May in the morning on France 2.

· You may have read the article in TV MAG Figaro which will come out this weekend as a supplement to the daily.

· I will be on the cover of  TELE 7 JOURS and in GALA next week.

I am still not in a position to answer your questions regarding « Un Regard Un Enfant Maroc »  It is all very complicated as the association is in another country with different laws compared to ours.

You will have noticed that I joined the battle of NARG , an association which fights the slaughtering of animals without a sleep-inducing medecine. Defending the animal cause has always been one of my priorities as you know. We can't just do nothing and say nothing...

« Une journée particulière »  has been a real success at the  Festival d’Avignon  last Summer at the Théâtre du chêne noir. I am happy to announce that we will tour in France, but also in Belgium (several dates in Brussels) and in Switzerland. 

I will write to you again with the dates of our tour. I am anxious to see you again and to meet those who have not been able to come yet.

I would like to thank you again for your loyalty.

Message for the end-of-year festivities

Hello everybody,

We finished the shooting for France 2 a week ago! The title will be either  « La règle du Je » or «Un si joli mensonge ».

We have been so busy that we did not have the time to make any video films. But I can offer you some pictures of the shooting taken by my friend and photographer Manuelle Toussaint (which are of course protected and cannot be downloaded for the moment), which will enable you to sense the atmosphere.

It is an non-typical comedy for the public service and I am anxious to watch the result..! There are a lot of characters in the film. You will see some of them on the pictures but there are more...unfortunately it is very difficult to get them all together at the same time. Therefore, I am showing you a picture of the whole crew Complice.

We have worked hard and I think the result will be good, even if we ran out of time every day. The more actors, the more difficult and complex it gets, but we have all tried to give our best.

I hope you will like those 2 movies, i.e. this one and « La Malédiction de Julia » shot in Lille in October. They are very different and will probably be shown on television before Spring 2014. It has been a long time since I made a comedy.

I cannot give any news to all those enquiring about "Un Regard Un Enfant Agadir". Everything is so complicated and very sensitive there. I will come back to you on this as soon as possible.

Thank you for all the encouragements and for the cards/letters at the occasion of my birthday....I notice that you don't forget me!!!!!Content You have spoiled me with all the beautiful presents...I should scold you againContentand tell you that you should not do this!!

I sincerely want to thank you as this is very moving! They are precious to me and everything suits me fine. You know me so well for having met me at the theatre. Those who have will certainly know whom I am talking about!

Thanks again!

I take this occasion to wish you a beautiful end-of-year. I know from your letters that this year has been hard for many of you.

Never wish a Happy New Year before the beginning of the new year...so, I will not and will write to you again in January.

Take care of and spend some time with your families, friends and all those you love and lit the chimney fire!!!!!

Corinne Touzet
