E’ un anonimo utente di Flickr, Colonelchi, a pubblicare la foto che tutti avrebbero voluto avere: Terrence Malick alla premiere di The tree of life nel Palais del Festival di Cannes.
Si era saputo che, in qualche modo, il regista che non ama mostrarsi in pubblico aveva visto il film in sala, ma sinora era una notizia che sfumava nella leggenda che accompagna le apparizioni pubbliche di Terrence Malick.
Questo è il link all’immagine in cui potrete riconoscere Malick vicino a Brad Pitt e Jessica Chastain, al produttore Bill Pohland ed al distributore Luc Besson. Alle sue spalle si intravvede Ryan Golsling, presente in sala.
Jessica Chastain ha dichiarato a USA Today:
“I saw him before the film and he was really very upset because he didn’t want anyone to feel bad or be insulted, but he just couldn’t do it.”
“He’s incredibly shy and he doesn’t like being photographed. And on that red carpet, I felt like I was going to faint. It was so much coming at me.”
“Brad and I are standing there and everyone’s applauding, I looked over and in walked Terry,” said Chastain, her calm, measured voice rising excitedly. “I don’t think people realized it. The festival of course knew, but it was a last minute thing. And the camera kind of turned to the ground even though the premiere was being televised. There was nothing for like a minute on the screen and that’s because Terry came in. He stood there and everyone was clapping. The festival director was going ‘Yes!’ and throwing his arms up and trying to get everyone to recognize who Terry is. I came over and hugged Terry and Brad hugged Terry and Terry hugged his wife and it was a beautiful moment. It lasted like a minute and then he was gone”
