André Wilms on La vie de bohème

Inside Criterion / Sneak Peeks — Jan 28, 2014

Among the delights of Aki Kaurismäki’s La vie de bohème are the guest appearances by François Truffaut alter ego Jean-Pierre Léaud and the two-fisted American auteur Samuel Fuller. The former plays an eccentric collector who takes an interest in the paintings of the downtrodden painter Rodolfo (Matti Pellonpää); the latter turns up as a magazine publisher who hires the poet Marcel Marx, played by André Wilms. In this clip from a new interview on the Criterion release, Wilms talks about working with the two cinematic icons.
