“I cannot admire someone who hates Jews”: Gérard Darmon destroys Jean-Luc Godard

Invited by C à vous, especially for the play he played in Edouard VII, Gérard Darmon was invited by Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine to talk about Jean-Luc Godard, which he did without deviation.

In the turn of the “found” sequence that gives space for tributes to French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, died on September 13, Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine approached Gérard Darmon guest on the show to discuss his last game where, from September 27, he gave the answer to Clotilde Courault and Max Boublil “A dangerous situation”. “You want to say a word about Jean-Luc Godard?Not much” began the actor, clearly reserved about the director of “Contempt.” “I am afraid to go against the grain by talking about this gentleman who is the filmmaker that he is, he is not my cup of tea, but above all he is the person that he is. which is not very good in my community, the Jews in general and Israel in particular.”

Gérard Darmon “I find the comments he made absolutely unacceptable”

Left on his way, and seeing that he was not disturbed, Gerard Darmon continued and did not detour to explain the substance of his thoughts about Jean-Luc Godard. “I find the comments he made absolutely unacceptable, it’s anti-Semitism, it’s Holocaust denial, it’s revisionism. I think I was more affected by the loss of Queen Elizabeth than Jean-Luc Godard, I’m sorry , but I cannot admire a man who hates the Jews so much, it cannot be done.”

Gerard Darmon explained his point, without ever leaving his composure. “May his soul rest in peace, but he is not someone I appreciate, that I love. […] That’s all I can say about him, I don’t like his treatment of Jews and Israel. I don’t like the way he has to check history. That he has his ideas, that he’s pro-Palestinian, that’s good, and I’m for it in a way too. But not to say that “the Jews of the Holocaust were killed on purpose like sheep so that three years later we will know Israel” and I think that others follow this kind of words, I’m sorry, but I find it shameful.”

Gérard Darmon “the worm is in the fruit”

Patrick Cohen, who agreed that the director had “a dark side that is not often discussed” apart from the obituary in Le Monde and Liberation, wanted to put the words of Jean-Luc Godard in context. “It is also related to a period of his life, it was the end of the 60s and the beginning of the 70s, when he was part of the Vertov group” he pointed out “2006back to Gérard Darmon, the worm is in the fruit, he concluded, I don’t care but…”before smiling, moving. “Alright, that’s it” topic closed, Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine before continuing his questions about his guest who again showed sincerity, frankness and great emotion.
