Charlotte Rampling: The Look movie sceneThe 2011 documentary film The Look focuses its eye on the brains and beauty of French actress Charlotte Rampling (Never Let Me Go).

Director Angelina Maccarone’s method finds Rampling engaging in candid conversations with many of her closest friends, including author Paul Auster and photographer Juergen Teller. Very much at ease with these old acquaintances, Rampling reveals her views on aging, beauty, desire and death with disarming frankness. Often these conversations veer into the questions raised by her films, like the taboo sexuality of The Night Porter (1974) and Max mon Amour (1986), or the tough moral choices of Sidney Lumet’s The Verdict (1982).

Featuring a number of clips from Rampling’s films (including Woody Allen’s Stardust Memories and Francois Ozon’s Swimming Pool), The Look played a limited run in a couple of U.S. theaters in November, 2011.

The Look is presented in English, French, and German with English subtitles; there are no bonus features on the DVD or Blu-ray.
