Clemente on Vivre Sa Vie: Well, I am a weeper at the movies. In fact, I don’t go to the movies because I cry the entire time, even when it’s a comedy, and Vivre Sa Vie is the movie that makes you weep the most. In fact, I’m starting to weep right now just thinking of it. It’s also the movie that is…more believable than anything you can encounter in your life…every gesture in the film is really how it is.”
