Actor Vincent Lindon from Benjamin Kanarek’s Archives

I was taking a stroll in my neighborhood tonight and as I walked by a couple of men speaking, I hear a familiar voice that I know using a profane French word “Connard” which means asshole. I spun around, looked closely and I was surprised to find that standing there was one of the Great French Actors Vincent Lindon.

I walked up to him and said “Vincent, how are you? Remember me, I shot you for “Jardin des Modes” Magazine.” He totally freaked out and I said, “you look like you haven’t aged a bit…” which in my opinion was the case. We chatted for a few minutes and I asked if he still had the images. He said “No, please send them to me…” We spoke about Vahina Giocante as well, which he shot a film with. It was a real pleasure working with him and as usual, a humble human being. As they say a “Real Mensch”. He recently Starred in the 2009 film Mademoiselle Chambon“. Scroll down to view the trailer.

My neighborhood is a magnet for actors and actresses. Montmartre has always been the place where artists meet.

Anyhow, was nice to see him after over 20 years.
