Clouds of Sils Maria

The conventional wisdom goes that if your movie plays at the end of the film festival, chances are it’s not very good, or certainly not as worthwhile as the pictures that debut during those hot first few days. Certainly this is largely true for Sundance and TIFF, festivals that Hollywood abandons en masse after the first critical weekend, but the Cannes Film Festival is different, and they basically do whatever they want (true of the French too). So if you’re worried about Olivier Assayas’ “Clouds Of Sils Maria” playing near the end of the festival, fear not (plus we’ve heard the scheduling is to accommodate wrangling the talent, with many of the cast are shooting films elsewhere).

If you’re paying close attention to this one, and you should (here’s the informative director’s statement), the movie is essentially about the relationship with the past and chronicles an actress (Juliette Binoche) who has to face the fact that she's aging and has lost a classic part to a younger, more alluring actress (Chloe Grace Moretz). Together with her assistant (Kristen Stewart), the elder actress departs to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. The movie also stars Brady Corbet and Johnny Flynn (who appeared alongside Anne Hathaway in "Song One").

It’s a terrific cast and not a typical story, and Assayas has done these kinds of introspective, negotiating with the past films quite successfully before (see the excellent “Summer Hours”). You’ve already seen one clip from the film that has given you some flavor of the movie’s tone and now two more clips have arrived (via KStewart Fans), one featuring Stewart and Binoche and one introducing Moretz’s shallower character. The actors possess a naturalistic, unshowy feel and everyone appears to be very much in their casual element. Suffice to say we’re intrigued. “Clouds Of Sils Maria” premieres later this week during Cannes. Keep your eyes peeled for our review and watch the clips below.

    A long time ago, when I first saw K. Stewart in Speak and Cake Eaters, I predicted that she would grow up to be one of the finest of her generation in terms of acting. I admired her for choosing interesting indie roles, some very complex for someone her age. What happened to that girl? As she grow older she became increasingly worse, her Twilight phase still being her worst. But Twilight is crap, I think even some of the best actors couldn't have saved it. Speaking of Twilight, R. Pattinson has done the exact opposite - he started off fairly weak but gets increasingly better with each movie. It seems that having Cronenberg on his side did wonders for his career. I've read interviews with Cronenberg and he talks quite fondly of him.
    Back on topic, I've seen a lot of her movies so I can formulate a theory on what happened exactly - she has only one trick up her sleave - she chooses quite different roles but she can only interpret them in one way. Quite a shame because from her generation of actors she was the most promising back then.

    Yeah, there is no basis of truth of what you just said. I'm going to have to brutally honest with you... you're probably not smart enough to critique someone's performance. If the best theory you can come up with is that she's the same in every movie then that not much of theory. You're basically just jumping on the bandwagon. But what I've notice is that the general public is much more dismissive of her than certified critics. I hate to be an elitist about this but critics would most likely have more knowledge of cinema and acting than the general public. That doesn't mean they're always right or that they always know what they're talking about. But that a critic would likely have more knowledge on the subject. So when Kristen receive critical praise from films like Adventureland, Cake Eaters, Runaways, and On The Road, then we should take notice. If you've been reading the reviews of 'Clouds Of Sils Maria' Kristen has been receiving a lot praise so far. That may not change your opinion of her but that should at least acknowledge that people who probably know more than you thinks she's a good actress.

    Is this Kristen woman playing herself? Sheesh it sure seems like it, and I don't mean that as a compliment.

    No compliment is necessary. Since your opinion doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.

    Clicked on this link for Juliette...wow not even she can save this movie, judging by this trailer Kristen Stewart is still the worst actress of her generation. Baffled to why she got this part, maybe the director identified her with the character, the way she talks like a rambling child, perhaps.

  • Mandy | May 22, 2014 9:29 AMReply

    I could think of a dozen other actresses who would have sufficed. Mia Wasikowska would have been marvellous. I heard she was actually originally cast but, chose a Cronenberg movie instead. This might have been worth seeing but, with Kristen Stewart looking like she just fell out of bed and is reading her lines, I will pass. No thank you.

  • SleeperWillWake | May 24, 2014 7:13 PM

    You act as if someone was asking for your opinion/input or talking to you directly. I promise you that your opinion doesn't matter that much.

  • OMG | May 22, 2014 9:26 AMReply

    Wasn't expecting to see the same character as played a vampire, Bella Swan in an Assayas movie. Kristen Stewart is a terrible actress, totally wooden. How on earth did she get this role?

  • Mae | May 25, 2014 7:36 PM

    She's actually getting rave reviews, so...

  • SleeperWillWake | May 24, 2014 7:15 PM

    Because not everyone is as short sighted and creatively inept as you. That's how Kristen got the role.

  • Cyril | May 22, 2014 9:25 AMReply

    Money clearly talks in HW even with independent cinema. Such BS that you could justify casting an actress who acts worse than any crew member on set. Kristen Stewart single handedly ruins every film she's ever been in. This film looks visually beautiful but, I will have to give it a pass even though I love Chloe Moretz and Juliette Binoche. Other Actors have to be more savvy accepting roles for films she's working in or lo and behold , their reputations will also suffer.

  • daaah | May 22, 2014 6:35 AMReply

    you trolls are laughable, every negative comment towards kristen stewart is a cookie cutter response every kristen hater comes up with. you guys keep spewing the same unfounded sh#t. move on and hate on someone else. everyone knows that you all are robsessed fans trying to discredit this actress. go support your boy robert and leave kristen alone!

    "Wake up. She can't act and anybody with eyes and ears can notice it. Just because people point out the obvious it does not mean they are trolls.

    Grow up!"

    No, you need to grow up if you think everyone should believe that she can't act. Have you been reading the reviews lately. Many people much smarter than you would disagree that she can't act.

  • David | May 22, 2014 4:24 AMReply

    I don't like to nitpick, but something about Kristen Stewart's line delivery is too rushed at times. Not just in this clip, but in many of her films. And the tempo doesn't match Binoche's experienced delivery. It really sticks out. Which is unfortunate. I was looking forward to this film as I'm a huge Binoche fan. These are just small clips, though. I'm hoping the film as a whole is better than what is seen here. Chloe Moretz's delivery is great and matches Binoche perfectly. Maybe it's just the way I like to see lines delivered in a film.

  • Leslie | May 22, 2014 9:34 AM

    Yes, I agree with everything you've said. She is truly an awful actress. It does beg the question how she gets roles like these? Maybe they are hoping she has a huge gay following who will support her. Who knows.

  • LOVEKS | May 22, 2014 12:52 AMReply

    No matter what those haters say, there is one thing for sure, they are obsessed with Kristen because nobody twists their arms to search Kristen's news and spit those hateful comments. Don't worry. She has fans like us to support her.

  • Tess | May 22, 2014 6:11 PM

    Call them haters all you want. It's not going to make people think she's a better actress. People have different opinions. You think she's a great actress others disagree.

  • hawk | May 22, 2014 12:40 AMReply

    Absolutely perfect cast, and I'm looking forward to this film all the time, as well as other movies Kristen Stewart. She is a the most talented young one in HW today.

    The "casting couch" comments are plan sexist and slightly misogynistic. No one every claims a man slept his way to the top. He of course got there based on his own talent and hard work. (rme)

  • Gina | May 22, 2014 6:15 PM

    People make those comments because she has a history. It didn't come from nowhere. If a man was caught doing sexual things with his female or male director, there will be plenty of comments. Trust me.

    However, that doesn't mean that men don't sleep their way to the top. I'm sure many of them do.

  • Susan | May 22, 2014 9:38 AM

    I disagree. I read somewhere that she wants to be a director. Maybe she saw something special in Rupert and wanted to use him to learn from. She strikes me as an opportunist. The way she used her ex boyfriend for fame and the way she has latched onto people like Karl Lagerfeld. She apparently went to all his shows and endorsed his products before she got the endorsement deal. She grew up in HW to HW players so must know the game quite well. The fact she didn't seem to love Rupert Sanders tells you that she did it for something other than love, and I agree it must have been for advancement. Besides I heard the follow up movie was intended to feature the Huntsman quite heavily and maybe she's used to using sex as a weapon to get what she wants.

  • Cali | May 22, 2014 12:37 AM

    If you are referring to the cheating, that happened after she got the role and the movie was already in cinemas. And like others have said she didn't need the role in SWATH. Sorry, that doesn't apply. And if you are trying to imply that she slept her way to the top you are implying that a 10/11 year old Kristen Stewart slept with David Fincher for her role in Panic Room. She was even a minor when she got her role in Twilight. So no, I don't know what you mean. Oh how people forget how long she has been working in Hollywood.

    Amie is trying to pass of RUMORS that she probably got from a blind item/gossip as the truth.

    It's still sexist and misogynistic to imply that's how any woman gets ahead. I'm assuming that this Amie person is a women, which makes the allegations worse.

  • Well | May 22, 2014 12:08 AM

    The recent scandal with the Xmen director just proved that the casting couch applies to both actors and actresses but what I think Amie was trying to point out in her comment was that Kristen Stewart is the sort of actress who rely's on the vouching cast, it you know what I mean..

    Even if you don't like her you don't have to resort to such childish behavior to express yourself.

    @Amie
    Um, the guy was a first time director and at the time she was the highest paid female star. She was the one in power. I don't even like the chick, but what you are saying is obvious BS and the other "rumor" is beyond disgusting.

  • @ AMIE | May 21, 2014 7:30 PM

    She was a huge star before Snow White. THEY pursued HER to be in the movie. As for the "rumors" of her mom pimping her out, you should probably stop believing all the blind gossip items you read.

  • Amie | May 21, 2014 6:14 PM

  • AUSTIN YEARWOOD | May 21, 2014 4:02 PMReply

    I will certainly say that a majority of Kristen Stewart's haters are people who do not know how to be themselves. I have a couple of acquaintances who don't like Ms. Stewart and at the same time they do not know how to be themselves. They are always these little drama queens trying to impress everyone. They are Christians when they are with other Christians, then they are Atheists when they are with other Atheists. These people need to spend less time bashing K-Stew and spend more time learning to be themselves. K-Stew knows herself do they know themselves? If you like Kristen then watch her, if not then skip the movie or change the damn channel. And as for that Anthony guy if Ms. Stewart is such a" nuisance" to talk about what are you doing on this board? For example I don't really like Claire Danes, so I just stay away from any news source or outlet that has any story about her. Just saying.

  • Lind | May 22, 2014 6:25 PM

    Did Kristen Stewart teach you that. You're rambling and not making any sense. You're right in a way. At least Kristen knows how to be herself because that's all she does in movies.

    "Kristen Stewart got bad reviews about her performance in On The Road actually, but you obviously ignored those and paid attention to the reviews that where midi core"

    No, she mostly got good feedback for that film.

    "However, New York magazine's Kyle Buchanan wrote, "Certainly, there's nothing regrettable about Stewart's performance here: It reestablishes the promising character actress last seen in Into the Wild and held captive as Twilight's leading lady for years,"[41] and Todd McCarthy said, Stewart "is perfect in the role."[37] Peter Travers from Rolling Stone gave her a positive notice, calling her "a live wire. "

    Clearly, you ignored these review because it didn't conform to your opinion.

  • Cooper | May 21, 2014 7:35 PM

    Saying she and Hedlund were the most praised for OTR isn't saying much. The film got a majority of bad reviews and they got them, too.

    She didn't portray the character as people who read the book had envisioned her and she didn't have enough charisma or screen presence to bring Mary Lou to life as she should have done. Hedlund was also lacking in every way. I don't know where they're going to stop trying to make him happen. He's had chance after chance, and he never delivers.

    As for Stewart, her part was cut down in a big way after the film was shown at Cannes. I think she ended up being in about 15 minutes of the film in the US, but even Kirsten Dunst in her 5 minutes made a more powerful impression.

    Kristen is a very good actress. Have you ever noticed that most actors do the same things in the movies they make? Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Jennifer Lawrence, Uma Thurman, etc. So does Rob Pattinson. She is a beautiful lovely young lady and I love her acting. You should not be so critical of her.

    Still at it, I see. Stay pressed.

  • Au Contraire | May 21, 2014 7:28 PM

    Please don't compare KStew to Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. They aren't in the same league, and Vulture already did a long comparison of their careers and KStew did not come out well. She has two Razzies for Worst Actress, her last 3 films are Rotten on RT, and outside of this one foreign film, the rest of the stuff she has on her plate is more indie stuff no one will pay to see, just like all her other failed indies.

    Jennifer does not blink like a hummingbird, gasp, make heavy breathing noises before she speaks a line, shake her head, play with her hair, and have one expression in every single film the way KStew does. She is famous for all her ticks and mannerisms that she uses in every film. You can't say that about Roberts, Thurman or Pattinson.

    And in these clips, it doesn't look like much acting was involved. She's wearing her own clothes, jewelry, her own fake glasses, and acting like a smart mouthed hipster. She appears to be playing a version of herself, as she does in so many of her films.

  • Karma | May 21, 2014 7:22 PM

    @Maggiemae, you have no room to talk. You're in every Pattinson article, making rude, uncalled for remarks. You have zero objectivity where your wooden actress is involved. You reap what you sow.

    Maybe you will stop being so immature and confine your comments to her films, since you don't pay to see Pattinson's, anyway, so your opinion is worthless.

  • Richard | May 21, 2014 1:39 PMReply

    When will great indie film directors stop casting Kristen stewart, it seems that in all her films she plays the same character. She must have strong contacts in the business, I fail to see how she gets roles over promising up and coming actresses.

  • Hey | May 21, 2014 3:49 PM

    "Kristen Stewart uses the same facial expressions, body launguge and dilvery of speech for every character she plays. "

    Not true, even though she does in fact uses the same mannerism for most characters, which doesn't mean she is bad or good, any personality actors does that, there are other personality actors who have a very distinct mannerism as well, like Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman and they are very good actors.

    Personality acting is a very worthy and respected way of acting, it doesn't matter if the actor uses the same manneirism, the important thing to be beliveable in those very different characters, and Kristen my friends, does that, she is as well believable as the naive, passive, girl next door Bella Swan as the rockstar with lots of attitude Joan Jett, or the sad rape victim Melinda in Speak, or teen stripper hoker in Welcome To The Rileys, or the girl suffering from a mortal muscular disease in The Cake Eaters.

  • Richard | May 21, 2014 3:46 PM

    Didn't On The Road do really bad at the Box office? No surprise in big studio movies making money, both were a strong assemble cast, and there were a lot of crazy Twilight fans, I can't think of any indies that have done well for Kristen Stewart

  • Hmm | May 21, 2014 3:35 PM

    "And it is not the critics opinion that matters the most but the audiences, and it seems that I'm in the majority with my opinion."

    There is a huge audience that likes her, she won several awards by popularity, Twilight Franchise made a lot of money and so did Snow White. Clouds of Sils Maria was one of the movies with most buzz in Cannes, thanks to her. If there is an audience disliking her, there is certainly more than enough audiences supporting her.

    If there is a huge audience that think she's a good actress as well as critics and respected people from the Industry, well she probably is.

    "Kristen Stewart uses the same facial expressions, body launguge and dilvery of speech for every character she plays."

    Isn't that the same with most actors? Most actors sticks with what they know and are not very diverse with their movie roles and characters. For example, Jennifer Lawrence acting for her movies (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, X-Men etc.) are quite similar.
    PS: I am not comparing them or anything, just using Jennifer as an example because I like her and am familiar with her movies.

    Kristen Stewart uses the same facial expressions, body launguge and dilvery of speech for every character she plays. And it is not the critics opinion that matters the most but the audiences, and it seems that I'm in the majority with my opinion.

  • @Richard | May 21, 2014 1:53 PM

    How is she playing the same character. I don't see the similarities between this character and the ones in OTR, Welcome to Riley's, The Runaways, Into the Wild, Yellow Handkerchief etc. I think it's all in your head. Besides, she gets a lot of good reviews for her acting. I'm sure critics and directors know more than you anyway.

    The script for this film is absolutely lovely. Intelligent, reflective dialogue. These three women are going to excel. Cannot wait to see it.

    I was highly anticipating this movie when I heard it was in competition at Cannes, The cast did plant a seed of doubt in my mind but my faith in Assayas in time, diminished those thoughts. Having seen these clips I am extremely disappointed, Stewarts playing her character with the same annoying ticks as she has with every one of her other roles. She is an incompetent actress not worthy of the great Binoche.

    There is no use trying to talk sense in to these people. Anthony is just another wannabe critic who doesn't know a thing about acting.

  • hmm | May 21, 2014 2:58 PM

    you would know*

  • Hmm | May 21, 2014 2:57 PM

    "And her annoying tics are, her mumbling, random outbursts of breath"
    Well, there aren't any of them in those clips or her latest movies. In case she does it a few times in a movie, it wouldn't be a tick, cause a tick is only a tick if you do it several times.

    "twitchy body language"
    That's subjective of course, but it wouldn't be a tick, it would be mannerism, and if you know a thing about acting, you would that any personality actor has it.

    If you are a fan of Olivier, you should trust him when he says she did a great job, and he knows better than anybody how the character should be (since he also wrote the script), so if he's satisfied with her work then she did justice to the character. She was also his first option for the character cause he liked her perfomances in The Runaways and Into The Wild.

    Well if you are an Assayas fan, you should check out his recent interviews on this film. He has nothing but the utmost praise for her.

  • Anthony | May 21, 2014 2:21 PM

    It is a nuisance to talk about Stewart, I shared my opinion because I am a fan of Assayas and the indie film industry. I haven't heard of her working with any directors that I admire, I hope she never tarnishes ones film ever again. And her annoying tics are, her mumbling, random outbursts of breath and twitchy body language.

  • HMM | May 21, 2014 1:54 PM

    correcting myself: biting lips* and ticks*

    Anyway, if you don't like her acting ok, but saying there are ticks where there aren't, it's just not true.

  • Hmm | May 21, 2014 1:50 PM

    What tics?
    There is no usual tics in here, she's been reducing her tics (bitting lips, messing around with her hair..) since the second twilight, when probably she got aware of them.
    There is absolutely no tics in her latest movies OTR, the last Twilight, Camp x-ray and those clips.

  • yelena | May 21, 2014 1:47 PM

    what ticks? so sick of none stop hatred for this actress.

  • @Anthony | May 21, 2014 1:38 PM

    Not anytime soon. She has at least 7 films coming out over the next 2 years.

  • @Anthony | May 21, 2014 1:37 PM

    You are obviously not her fan. In fact she was even considered as a long shot for Oscar supporting actress by many industry people because of her performance in OTR. But if you disagree, the best for you to do is ignoring her and not watching any of her movies.

  • Anthony | May 21, 2014 1:28 PM

    I have seen enough of Stewart's acting to know that she is one of the worst in Hollywood, I see no difference in the clips. I "gave her a chance" in Snow White And The Huntsman and On The Road, when will the industry realise that she is incapable

  • Henry` | May 21, 2014 1:01 PM

    I agree. There have only been 3 clips released from this movie, totaling about 4 minutes out of a 2 hr, 3 minute movie. Wait until the movie is released before unleashing your review of Stewart's acting skills.

  • @Anthony | May 21, 2014 12:53 PM

    How about waiting for some reviews? Your loss if you dismiss films so quickly.
