“A quasi-porn sequence”: Isabelle Adjani comments on a cut scene from Masquerade


Isabelle Adjani comments on a cut scene from the film Masquerade by Nicolas Bedos: “When I saw the finished film, I discovered that it was an almost pornographic sequence”…

This is one of the theatrical successes of the moment, Masquerade. The new film by Nicolas Bedos is the novelty of the week with the most admissions, and all releases combined, is 2nd, just behind Black Adam with Dwayne Johnson.

Mascarade can notably count on a very prestigious cast: Pierre Niney, Marine Vacth, François Cluzet, Emmanuelle Devos, but also Isabelle Adjani. The latter plays a rather daring role of a free and cruel woman, having a relationship with Pierre Niney, playing a gigolo.

In the columns of Paris Match, Isabelle Adjani recently made some astonishing revelations about the film, in particular about scenes that have been cut or modified. We know that the film has been edited and shortened since the Cannes Film Festival. But we learn a little more about the content of a scene.

In editing, what was cut was the scene where Martha, my character, went off the rails with a striptease à la 9 1/2 weeks by singing Cheval de feu by Jeanne Cherhal, with the aim of provoking an erection in the character of Pierre Niney (laughter). As the effect is long overdue, he projects one of Martha’s youth films to achieve orgasm.”

Me, seeing Masquerade finished, I discovered that it was an almost porn sequence! On the shoot, there was nothing on the screen because the overlay of a “charming scene with a slightly libertine side” was planned… But in fact, it’s purely and simply a scene of ass which is offered to the libido of the ‘giton’ who lives with her! All this to tell you that when you’re an actress, you’re never safe from a surprise! (laughs)”, says Isabelle Adjani to Paris Match.

In the press kit, Nicolas Bedos says more about the inspiration for Isabelle Adjani’s character. Masquerade is indeed inspired by stories that Nicolas Bedos lived, but also by things he observed or that were told to him. Martha, for example, is the combination of two women he has known: “One was close to my parents, she was the muse of a great director whose homosexuality she discovered after 30 years of love and collaboration. His world crumbled before us. The other is a friend whose inner path I accompanied towards meeting her biological mother..”

Masquerade is currently playing.
