Weeks go by and Camille is not the same as Katin. Three weeks ago, she walked the red carpet twice at the Cannes Film Festival, rather than for films. Stillwater And My troop. When we picked her up on the phone last week, she was in England. “I was under quarantine, so suddenly the difference was huge,” she said.
How contradictory! The day Camille Catin told us to shoot the fourth season of the series Eve Killing, Which is the lifting of many health restrictions in England.
The actress, who is best known for her role as Andrea in the successful series, went to Cannes not without consequences Call my agent. In October 2020, she captured COVID-19 during the Canaries Festival, dedicated to television series around the world.
“In addition, I said in all the interviews that despite the virus we could survive and three days later, I was in bed! », Camille Catin clearly said with self-mockery of sympathy.
This time, it was without any virus, but with a lot of emotion Camille Katin left Keynes. Image Stillwater, She Matt Damon and Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) Signs of realization, which the audience was finally able to see in the movie theater. In Croatia, in this case, at the Grand Theater Lumiere. The film is far from competitive, but after the official screening we saw Matt Damon struggling to hold back tears during his long adoration.
The film was postponed for a year. It’s moving with the team to find this picture. At one point, we didn’t know if this movie was going to be released in theaters.
Camille Catin, actress
Stillwater Premieres across North America on July 30th. “It simply came to our notice then. It would break my heart if it only came out on one platform. ”
For the American members of the film crew, it was a return to the south of France. Stillwater The film is mostly shot in the city of Marseille. “It was an hour from Cannes and we went there with the whole team to showcase this film,” said Camille Catin. For all these reasons, it is moving. ”
Especially since Stillwater Arriving in Marseille reveals the culture shock experienced by an American from Oklahoma. Someone with a few words, some called redneck, Wants to see his daughter who is serving a five-year prison sentence for murdering his girlfriend. Bill Baker (Matt Damon) finally tries to get her out of jail. It also stars actress Abigail Breslin (LA) Little Miss Sunshine) Reflects his daughter.
In the case of Camille Catin’s character, Virgie, she helps Bill with her research and problem solving.
Tom McCarthy screenplay – inspired by the experiences of American Amanda Knox in Italy – is not French or American. For authenticity, he called two French screenwriters (Thomas Bidegain and No Debray).
I read the script at once. I liked that it was a thriller on the face and that the film took a completely different direction and became a more intimate drama and character film.
Camille Catin, actress
“Mine is the voice of hope, patience and openness,” she adds. She is total, honest. Strong, but very soft. ”
Virgie guides Bill and sees him too. Bill is paired with Virginia’s daughter Maya.
Through this improbable encounter, the film invites people to understand through their past and to dispel our prejudices. Virginia’s friends can’t help but ask Bill if he voted for Trump and if he has guns. For his part, Bill, with a big heart, tries to learn French. He had never seen a play in his life, but he was interested in Virginia’s acting career.
Characters full of contradictions
In the game, depending on their character, Matt Damon plays with restraint, while Camille Cottin plays a woman with a solar personality. A challenge?
“Tom we first wanted to read a week with all the cast and it was so awesome,” Camille Catin said. It is very rare that we take this time. Then we filmed chronologically and I really liked this work. ”
The actors were tamed just like their characters. “I admired Matt’s vision, his energy … for me, he completely disappeared behind Bill Baker.”
For Quebec film buffs, it would be interesting to see a film where American and French cultures meet, away from the clichs of postcards. As in the movie, it is rare for Bill Baker to communicate with French youth of Arab descent or to attend an OM football match at a velodrome.
“This film will never judge its characters,” Camille Catin rightly said.

The future? “It’s unknown and we will see,” said Camille Catin.
The only thing she can control is the quality and passion of her work, she tells us.
“I came from the theater and I did the movies late. I have always approached my work in a traditional manner and I have the impression that what happens to me is that I am a craftsman. […] Our sole worth of work is definitely worth it. At work, there is an energy that always comes back to us. ”
It certainly is Stillwater, Which takes the poster this Friday.
