Cartier Puts Love in the Online Spotlight With Three Short Films in Cinema-mode by Luca Guadagnino

PARIS, November 25, 2011/PRNewswire/ —

” L’amour a un nom et une couleur ”

” True love has a colour and a name ”

Cartieris releasing three short films, three marriage proposals, exclusively on Facebook from and on YouTube. Love, the proposal, and the red box are the three themes Cartier has entrusted to the Italian director Luca Guadagnino (2011 Oscar nominee for the Best Foreign Film: “I Am Love”).

Working with the American screenwriter Xan Cassavettes, the director shows three proposals of marriage, three iconic love stories involving Paris and jewellery, each set in a different part of the city: the rue du Faubourg Saint Honore, the Opera and the Palais Royale.

Shot in cinema mode, these original stories show how romance affects three generations of lovers in turn:

On a night tinged with nostalgia, the wonderful Aurore Clement, best known for her performance in Louis Malle’s Lacombe Lucien and her appearance in Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, stands in evening wear on the steps of the Opera Garnier.

During a light, playful afternoon in the gardens of the Palais Royal; two actors off-camera find new roles to play and are filmed from the side-lines of their affair. With the Italian actress Valentina Cervi (The Portrait of a Lady, directed by Jeanne Campion).

Two guests escape from a grand reception in a mansion on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, ending up together in the intimacy of a room overlooking the roofs of Paris. With the new French star Marine Vacht and Hugo Becker, who made his mark as the Frenchman in the American series, Gossip Girl.

For this international production, Cartier has brought together a wide range of talents with European actors, an American screenwriter, an Italian Director: a myriad of personalities that give life to these stories which are both unique and universal like many romantic declarations.

As if true love had a colour and a name…
