Antichrist (3) - Interviews mit Willem Dafoe

Zwei Interviews mit Willem Dafoe
Lars von Trier, Willem Dafoe und Charlotte Gainsbourg haben sich mehrfach über Antichrist geäußert. Im folgenden wird Willem Dafoe aus zwei verschiedenen Interviews zitiert, in denen er zu seiner schockierenden Rolle in dem kontoversen Streifen Stellung nimmt. Dabei beantwortet er auch Fragen zu den expliziten Sexszenen.

Zum ersten mal nackt und intim vor der Kamera
Im DIGITAL SPY Interview erklärt Willem Dafoe, dass er die erste intime Begegnung mit Charlotte Gainsbourg beim Drehen hatte: "Ich küsste sie zum erstenmal vor der Kamera. Ich berührte sie zum ersten mal vor der Kamera. Wir sahen uns zum ersten mal nackt vor der Kamera."
Die Fragen stellte Entertainment Reporter Mayer Nissim. Es folgt ein Auszug aus dem Interview, das am Dienstag, 21. Juli 2009 veröffentlicht wurde.

Digital Spy: What attracted you to the film?
Willem Dafoe: ... I like the material, I like Lars a lot. I went crazy for the material, I thought it was really good. It's hard to find movies that have content about adult things.

Digital Spy: What was your first reaction when you read the script and found out your character got his genitals crushed?
Willem Dafoe: Practical! How are we going to do this? Whose testicles are we talking about? How soft is that piece of wood?

Digital Spy: Did you get to build a relationship with Charlotte before you started shooting?
Willem Dafoe: No. I kissed her the first time in front of the camera. I touched her the first time in front of the camera. We saw each other naked for the first time in front of the camera. It's like that. Lars set the trust up. He's very thoughtful and he's very smart, so that sets the tone. And it's good material. Charlotte knows why she's there, I know why I'm there. We like each other. We work together to do the thing. I feel very sentimental about it. I always feel sentimental about people come together 'for the greater good' kind of way, and that's what it felt like.

Body Doubles bei explizitem Sex in Antichrist
In einem Interview mit DAZED DIGITAL.COM erklärt der männliche Hauptdarsteller, dass ihn das Drehbuch sehr interessiert und gereizt hat und eine Herausforderung für ihn war. Willem Dafoe bestätigt auch, dass er und Charlotte Gainsbourg keinen echten Sex vor laufender Kamera hatten. Während der expliziten HC Szenen wurden sie von professionellen Pornodarstellern gedoubelt.
Die Fragen stellte Rosamund Witcher. Es folgt ein Auszug aus dem Interview, das am Montag, 20. Juli 2009 veröffentlicht wurde.

Dazed Digital: Antichrist is an extreme film, with very graphic sex and violence. Why did you want to do it?
Willem Dafoe: Because it’s a challenging role and the subject matter interested me. There were many challenging things in the script, which I had to appetite to do.

Dazed Digital: Certain scenes – such as the genital mutilation – you must have read and thought….
Willem Dafoe: … Yeah! Okay. How are we going to do that? But that’s what’s exciting about it. That’s the leap of faith.

Dazed Digital: There's a lot of nudity in Antichrist so, I have to ask, is that actually your ...
Willem Dafoe: ... Penis? No, it's not mine. Lars used a porn actor for those scenes. It was a good decision because, if it was me, then that's all that people would talk about. Obviously Lars wants the characters to have genitals but it would become a distraction: Oh, they really had sex! If he had asked me to do it, I don't know what I would have said.

Dazed Digital: That could have been awkward.
Willem Dafoe: Well, never say never. But, on a practical level, Charlotte and I are both married and I’m not sure everybody would be cool with that!
