Xavier Dolan in tears during his tribute to Gaspard Ulliel

Among the highlights of the César 2022 evening, we will remember Xavier Dolan’s moving tribute to Gaspard Ulliel. The actor died at the age of 37 on January 19, following a skiing accident. Caesarized twice, it was essential for the Academy to pay homage to him. The Quebec director, who had him shoot in Just the end of the world, yielded to the painful exercise by writing a letter addressed to the mother of the actor: “I had written for Gaspard, I had written to Gaspard, but I had not written about Gaspard, he introduces, sobs in the voice. On the day of his death, I saw several of his films again, including A Long Engagement Sunday. Mathilde’s hope of finding Manek ran counter to my grief. She was going to find him. I had intentionally decided that this film was going to confirm the things that I still refuse to see tonight, to believe. I can’t help but think that he would have hated this type of praise. He would have perceived in this glorification a lack of elegance”, considers the Quebec director on the stage of the César. “And he was very elegant. We still have his talent, and no one can take that away from us. Everyone cried Gaspard. Everyone still mourns him.”

Marie infiltrates shows her buttocks on the Cesar stage

Among the moments of discomfort of the evening, let us note the happening of Marie s’infiltrate, who went up on the stage of the Césars by showing her buttocks. “Tribute to cul…ture. Undefeated spectator, you who survived, I show you my ass…ot. May you be convinced that I hide nothing in this chiaroscuro. It was my little declaration of love to me in the cinema, and especially to Louis Garrel whom I love…” she declared in particular in her speech which was not unanimous on social networks but also in the room.
