Creezy - Alain Delon - Jeanne Moreau - France
Creezy (La Race des Seigneurs, 1974)
Director: Pierre Granier-Deferre
Eurochannel presents Creezy, a political drama starring two of the biggest stars in French cinematic history: Alain Delon and Jeanne Moreau.
Alain Delon began his career in 1960 when he was 25. After appearing in many films that had little importance, he starred in great Italian director’s Luchino Visconti’s film Rocco and His Brothers (1960) and was launched to stardom. He followed that astounding performance with another one when he was in René Clément’s film Purple Noon. In contrast to his previous performance, in which his handsomeness was used by Visconti to give the character a kinder aura, Clément made Delon change radically as he played an assassin. These two roles highlighted his career. Since then, a series of events have led to Delon to have one of the most solid film careers in the world. He recently starred in Frank Riva, a series aired on Eurochannel.
Jeanne Moreau began her career in the 50s. Her fame in France began after being in a film directed by Louis Malle. She was recognized internationally after being in the film Jules and Jim (1961), by the acclaimed director François Truffaut. Apart from Malle and Truffant, Jeanne has also been in films directed by many other legendary names in film such as Jean-Luc Godard, Orson Welles, Michelangelo Antonioni, Luis Buñuel and Bertrand Blier. Something else that caught the film industry’s attention was her initiative to star in films by young directors in an effort to encourage culture and the French film industry.
Julien (Alain Delon) is torn between his political ambitions and his passion for the model Creezy (Sydne Rome). Still, he keeps a romantic relationship with his mentor, Renee Vibert (Jeanne Moreau), who has become his political advisor.
