Vincent Cassel interview on Cinémoi

Exclusive! Vincent Cassel interview on Cinémoi this weekend

Sunday 22nd March

Check out Cinémoi (Sky Channel 839) this Sunday at 8pm to see one of France’s best exports, actor Vincent Cassel, in his most frank interview to date. Speaking openly about his marriage to the infamous Monica Belluici and commenting on his iconic roles, the César winning actor flies the flag for French cinema.

In an exclusive interview for Cinémoi, the star of La Haine, Irréversible and Ocean's 12, talks about his latest role in Mesrine, Monica Bellucci and his love of cinema.

The Interview

This hour-long interview offers an exclusive insight into Mesrine, the new two-part film about the infamous French gangster. Jacques Mesrine was a massive media figure in France, his criminal notoriety akin to that of Billy the Kid in the US or The Kray brothers in the UK. The film’s release was highly anticipated and did not disappoint, achieving great success both with critics and at the box office. Mesrine has cemented Cassel’s position as France’s shining star and led to an overdue César for Best Actor.

In addition to his experience on Mesrine, Vincent Cassel discusses his career both in France, from the ground breaking La Haine to the controversial Irréversible, and abroad, with hits such as Ocean’s 12, Eastern Promises and Shrek to his name. Vincent Cassel has given his full support for the launch of Cinémoi and uses the opportunity to reflect on French films in general, including those of his father Jean-Pierre Cassel, as well as Italian cinema and his relationship with actress Monica Belluci.
