Just like Gaspar Noé dedicated Irréversible – perhaps the best movie ever – to Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci, I’d like to dedicate this post to them as well. Ever since I first watched La Haine back in high school I became a fan of Cassel’s and soon he was to be my favorite actor. From the hilarious short films with his Kourtrajmé friends, to his capoeira tricks in Ocean’s Twelve, he has it all. Yes all, he’s married to probably the most beautiful of all actresses, namely Monica Bellucci.
I’ve tried to select stills from films with Cassel’s appearance before, like in Crimson Rivers where he rocks a pair of Jordan IV’s or from the recent Notre Jour Viendra by acclaimed director Romain Gavras, but never managed to get a good selection. Now finally when I stumbled upon the fact that Cassel is wearing a Rolex Submariner in Agents Secrets, one of his worst movies, I immediately took the dvd from the shelve to see if it was worth it. And yes it is, I present to you Cassel and Bellucci. For me Bellucci even steals the show here with her humble appearance in a black duffle and a beige trench coat, although it could be I’m just deceived by her beauty.
