Léa Salamé questions Francis Ford Coppola about his end of life

An exceptional number of “What a time!” was directed by Léa Salamé this Saturday, May 18 on France 2. The journalist, on forced rest last weekend, offered her talk show live for the first time and outside of Studios Rive Gauche (Paris).

Launched on May 14, the Cannes festival is an opportunity for the French media to treat themselves to some nice shots. In the second part of the evening, viewers were able to appreciate the arrival of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. 13 years after the release of his last feature film, the father of the “The Godfather” trilogy is aiming for a third Palme d’Or with his futuristic “Megalopolis”.

“A trend towards fascism”

Having withdrawn from the European campaign, the journalist forming a couple with Raphaël Glucksmann, head of the PS list, Léa Salamé has in some way vented her frustration by taking hold of American political news. Nearly six months before a probable return match between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, the voice of France Inter sought the view of its prestigious guest who allowed himself an analogy between the Roman epic – the temporal framework of his latest feature -feature – and the contemporary era: “There is a tendency towards fascism, in order to control people. We sow what we reap. But if artists make films like “Megalopolis”, it will bring light”.

FF Coppola will regret nothing

Léa Salamé also questioned Francis Ford Coppola on a more personal level. If at 85 years old, the latter assured that he would still be in the profession within 20 years, he was asked word for word: “Are you afraid of death? Do you think about death?” Nothing to destabilize the director: “When I die, I’ll say, ‘I have to do this.’ I was able to see my daughter [Sofia Coppola, ndlr] win an Oscar, I was able to make wine and I was able to make all the movies I wanted to make. I’m going to be so busy thinking about everything I have to do that when I die, I won’t notice.”
