The great comedy sits with classical cellist Jan Vogler and Kevin EG. Perry tells us that the pandemic is the “hardest time” of this generation, that he cured depression and made a great concert film on the Acropolis of Athens.
Can I tell you the story of Bill Murray? Ten years ago, I got a job as a copywriter for a whiskey company at the Cannes Film Festival. Our office was right next to the lobby of the star-studded Martinez Hotel and the hotel gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate the opening night. As we opened the stopper, Murray entered the room, as if on cue, “Are we drinking?” he asked. Before we knew it, he filled our glasses and delighted us with his plan to “hooliganize” at the festival. The bosses of our whiskey company, of course, were angry. We had to show Bill Murray in our office and he drank champagne. It’s been 45 years since Murray made his public debut as an actor in the Saturday Night Live series, during which time the closed-minded comic book actor became known for his unexpected appearances in real life, such as starring in movies. Like Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day and Lost in Translation.
There have been countless incidents, such as Bill Murray shaking at a Scottish dormitory party, washing all the dirty dishes, or driving a taxi from Auckland to Sausalito while a taxi driver was reciting it on a saxophone. back seat. He disrupted photo shoots at bachelor parties and weddings, transforming our ideas about the protected, protected life of a famous person into a spontaneous, Dadaist playful expression.
Of all the impossible places where it appeared, the period of Herod Attic Odeon, about 2000, is the most unlikely. The theater on the southwest side of the Acropolis of Athens is the venue for his new concert film, New Worlds: The Cradle of Civilization. It opens with footage of Murray walking over the head of his audience, holding a large bouquet of red roses in one hand and throwing flowers one by one into a noisy crowd. Filmed in June 2018, the only thing he risked by impulsively ascending a crowd of people was when he fell on his back, he seemed indifferent, as if he felt like a capsule of time. “It’s a time capsule,” Murray says with a sigh.
“You just made me take a deep breath.” She is speaking by video call from an anonymous hotel suite in New York, wearing a gray button-down dress and a black wool knit dress, reminiscent of the red she wore as the title oceanographer in Wes Anderson’s Life in the Water with Steve Zissum. According to him, there is nothing like a global pandemic to put kibosh into spontaneous interaction.
A dog is the only person who is completely alive! ” he lamented. “She lives the life of a dog. The rest of us are afraid to die and are afraid to kill, so we wear masks, give us injections and so on. This is the most difficult period of our life cycle. We didn’t have a world war or a depression, we had our ancestors. This is a hand given to us, if you bend, you will not win. ” Next to Murray sits German classical cellist Jan Vogler, wearing glasses with a black polo neck. Fogler’s Bill Murray story may be the best. In 2013, while checking in for a flight from Berlin to New York, Vogler felt a shrug. This asked Murray Vogler how to fit a large cello corps on their flight.
Obviously, it will not fit in the top cabinet. “I think he was in a conflict when I told him there would be a window seat in the cello, but I told him to sit there because if I was sitting in the window seat, I couldn’t escape,” Vogler explains. Whenever possible, the two men and the instrument were next to each other on the flight, so Vogler had the opportunity to see for the first time the lines of Murray’s 1981 military comedy. “I thought it was very special, I was watching Bill and Stripes,” Vogler said. “I really liked the film. It was my imagination. If I went to the army, I would be as disgusted as those guys. ” Murray’s mouth lit up with laughter. “He didn’t know why I was in first grade,” he said.
