On May 21, 2024, Chiara Mastroianni will be present for the rise of the new film by Christophe Honoré Marcello mio in which she pays tribute to her famous dad. The cast also includes her mother Catherine Deneuve, who will surely be present on the Croisette alongside her daughter, but also Benjamin Biolay (the father of her daughter) and other important men in her life. Interviewed by La Tribune Sundaythe 51-year-old actress spoke about the filming of this feature film in which she left a real mark.

“Was it easy to convince the other actors to make such a personal film?”, “Yes, because they have a lot of humor and self-deprecation. If we took ourselves seriously, we would have made a film dramatic, even a biopic, and there it is the end of the world. There are also very important men in my life in this film: Melvil! [son ancien petit ami]who pushed me to do cinema, Benjamin (Biolay, the father of his daughter), who pushed me to sing, and Christophe, who pushed me to do theater. All of this has meaning.” confided Chiara Mastroianni.

As a reminder, Chiara Mastroianni was in a relationship with Melvil Poupaud from 1988 and 1992. She then had a son Milo born on December 31, 1996 with sculptor Pierre Torreton. From 2002, she married Benjamin Biolay with whom she had a daughter Anna, born April 22, 2003.

Resurrecting Marcello Mastroianni

Resurrecting his dad was real therapy for Anna and Milo’s mom, but it also could have been “revive pain” among her loved ones caught up in this cinematic adventure. During the interview, Chiara Mastroianni also spoke about her daughter Anna (fruit of her love with Benjamin Biolay) who is also starting out in cinema.

“Like you, your daughter Anna is starting her career as an actress and has two well-known parents… Do you fear that she is going through the same identity questions as you?“, asks the journalist from La Tribune du Dimanche. “It’s true that in the family we are a bit like the sweet shops where it says ‘house founded in 1800’! I will always be there if she needs advice, but she is a great girl who knows quite well what she wants and what she doesn’t want, I have complete confidence in her abilities and her choices. replied the daughter of Marcello Mastroianni.

On Tuesday, it is as Chiara (and not as Marcello) that Catherine Deneuve’s daughter will climb the steps of the Cannes Film Festival. Very honored to be able to go to the Croisette, she recalls that he is the “largest film festival in the world“. A real honor for the pretty brunette who will appear with the entire team of this highly anticipated film.
