Pays: France
Durée: 54 min

À l’occasion des 70 ans de Magnum, retour sur le lien noué entre les photographes de l'agence mythique et le monde du cinéma. Une plongée unique dans le regard des créateurs, parmi lesquels Robert Capa, Cartier-Bresson, ou Josef Koudelka.
L'agence Magnum, créée en 1947 par Robert Capa, est intimement liée au cinéma depuis soixante-dix ans. Ses photographes iconiques, Capa lui-même, Cartier-Bresson, ou plus tard Josef Koudelka ont accompagné des tournages, leurs réalisateurs et leurs vedettes. Ils ont ainsi documenté des scènes de vie quotidienne, de travail, ou choisi de s'écarter du cadre pour immortaliser leur propre vision artistique. Venant du reportage de guerre ou du documentaire, ces photographes du réel ont appliqué leurs méthodes de travail à ce monde d’illusions : appareil léger, lumière naturelle, photo sur le vif et sans retouches. Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Kate Winslet, Michelangelo Antonioni ou Theo Angelopoulos sont passés sous l'œil de l'agence, instaurant un lien unique qui ne s'est pas défait en soixante-dix ans.
Fiction et réel
C’est par amour pour l’actrice Ingrid Bergman que Robert Capa prend la toute première photo de cinéma de Magnum sur le tournage des Enchaînés d’Alfred Hitchcock, inaugurant cette histoire entre l’agence et le cinéma. À partir de nombreux récits inédits, le documentaire retrace toute une vie d’histoires croisées entre deux mondes qu’a priori tout oppose : la fiction et le réel, comme cette rencontre en 1994 entre le réalisateur Theo Angelopoulos et le jeune photographe Josef Koudelka. Ils puiseront dans les Balkans, lieu de tournage du film Le regard d'Ulysse, des clichés et plans extraordinaires, tout en gardant chacun leur signature unique. Un témoignage passionnant sur le regard des créateurs, artistes de l'image, qu'ils soient derrière une caméra ou un appareil photo.

Retranscription du passage lié à Marilyn Monroe:

(à 19min 30sec) - Peter Marlow (photographe): Quand on a ce genre de relations, cela rend les choses très différentes; ça permet d'atteindre ce niveau d'intimité.
David Hurn (photographe): L'exemple parfait, c'est Marilyn Monroe et Eve Arnold. Elles étaient très amies et totalement à l'aise ensemble.
Eve Arnold (photographe): Marilyn avait vu une série de photos que j'avais faite de Marlene Dietrich. C'était au début des années 50; ça devait être en 52. A cette époque, les photos étaient toutes retouchées. Tout était très mis en scène. Moi, je ne savais rien de tout ça, j'étais une photojournaliste. J'ai photographié Marlene comme elle était. Elle ne posait pas. Il n'y avait pas de décor ou d'éclairage, juste moi et elle qui chantait. Quelques temps plus tard, je suis allée à une fête donnée pour John Huston. C'est Sam Shaw, un ami commun, qui m'a présentée à Marilyn. Elle m'a regardée et m'a dit: "Vous avez fait du beau travail avec Marlene. Imaginez ce que vous pourriez faire avec moi." J'ai trouvé ça merveilleux. Il se dégageait d'elle une vraie naïveté, mais en même temps, elle avait le sens de son image et savait se vendre. Je suis sûre qu'elle a tout de suite sentie ce que nous pourrions faire ensemble. Un jour, une nuit plutôt, vers 4 heures du matin, elle m'a appelée pour savoir si j'acceptais de la rejoindre à 10 heures du matin à l'aéroport. J'aurai droit à un reportage exclusif, car elle voyageait seule avec son coiffeur.
Isabella Rossellini (actrice, réalisatrice): Eve avait sa délicatesse qui je pense, lui a permis de gagner la confiance d'autres actrices. Notamment, celle de Joan Crawford.

(... à 21min 50sec) - Eve Arnold: C'était à Chicago durant une escale qui s'éternisait. Marilyn est allée aux toilettes et comme je suis une femme, je l'ai suivie. Je n'avais pas l'intention de la photographier, mais elle était si belle avec sa jupe relevée sur ses petites jambes potelées. J'avais toujours pensé qu'elle était mince. Elle avait cette merveilleuse capacité à se faire plus grande qu'elle n'était.
David Hurn: Cette photo est tellement intime. Et j'aime à pense que Eve était si proche d'elle, que Marilyn lui faisait tellement confiance. Cette photo, pour moi, c'est la quintessence de la photographie.

Eve Arnold: Je l'ai photographiée sur une période de 10 ans. La plus courte de nos séances n'a duré que deux heures et la plus longue, deux mois, sur le tournage du film "The Misfits" de John Huston. Arthur Miller avait écrit une nouvelle dans laquelle il racontait l'histoire de trois hommes qui travaillaient dans le désert et capturaient des mustangs qu'ils vendaient ensuite pour faire de la nourriture pour chiens. C'est dans ce cadre sauvage qu'apparaît Marilyn. Clark Gable et Marilyn étaient le couple vedette. Il y avait aussi Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach. Le film a été conçu dans le but de donner enfin un rôle sérieux à Marilyn.

Alain Bergala (essayiste): Les "Misfits" est totalement exceptionnel sur plein de points. Mais quand le film a commencé à se tourner, personne ne pouvait savoir à quel point, ce serait un film exceptionnel.
Voix Off: Le tournage du film "The Misfits" est un cas unique dans l'histoire des relations entre photographie et cinéma. Neuf grands photographes de Magnum Photos vont suivre ce tournage chaotique durant les trois mois de l'été 1960 à Reno et dans le désert du Nevada. Se succédant deux à deux toutes les deux semaines. Cet accord exceptionnel n'était pas uniquement le fait des liens de John Huston et de l'agence, mais revient à l'initiative de Lee Jones, à l'époque responsable des projets spéciaux du bureau de New York, qui a eu le pressentiment que ce film au casting de rêve mériterait une couverture exceptionnelle.

Alain Bergala: C'était la première fois dans l'histoire du cinéma où une agence obtenait l'exclusivité. Alors que toute la presse du monde aurait voulu être là. Il l'a obtenu pour une raison simple c'était que Marilyn était déjà mal en point au début du tournage et si elle avait vu arriver des photographes du monde entier, elle aurait craqué.

Voix Off: Les deux premiers photographes à arriver à Reno sont Inge Morath et Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Agnès Sire (directrice de la fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson): Cartier-Bresson, ça ne l'intéressait pas du tout. Et puis il a entrepris un voyage aux Etats-Unis l'année du tournage des "Misfits" et je pense que Lee Jones et tous les autres à Magnum lui ont dit: "Ca serait bien, on a l'exclu sur ce tournage. Ca serait bien que tu viennes, il y a Marilyn Monroe, etc..." Donc, il est allé sur le tournage; il n'est pas resté très longtemps. Mais il a fait beaucoup de photos; il a fait un portrait de Marilyn Monroe qui est très, très beau. Sa définition du portrait, qui est l'idée de saisir le silence intérieur d'une victime consentante, on voit vraiment, dans la photo de Marilyn Monroe, son silence intérieur.

Inge Morath (photographe -en 2001): Tout était exotique. Le caractère si américain du film était aussi exotique pour nous. Nous adoptions un point de vue très européen.
Agnès Sire: Arthur Miller a donc épousé Inge Morath qu'il a connue sur ce tournage des "Misfits". Arthur Miller était encore marié à Marilyn Monroe, mais c'était en train de se déliter totalement.
Alain Bergala: C'est hallucinant ce qu'on voit là dans les photos de ce tournage. Des scènes privées. C'est à dire que tout était destroy et du coup, tout était possible. Le photographe pouvait rentrer et faire la scène du ménage qui avait lieu à côté. Cela a évidemment beaucoup joué. Et ils ont senti ça, que tout allait mal.

Elliott Erwitt (photographe): Le chaos qui régnait sur le tournage était dû aux constants retards de Marilyn, à sa nervosité, et à sa grande détresse de façon générale.
Alain Bergala: Quand les acteurs arrivent, ils sont tous en très mauvais état. Clark Gable n'est pas en mauvais état mais il est très vieux, et Marilyn, ce film se trouve être son dernier film et elle le fait en très très mauvais état.
Bruce Davidson (photographe): Ce n'est pas le sex-appeal de Marilyn qui m'a attiré, mais sa fragilité. C'était une artiste qui luttait contre la dépression. Il y a cette photo que j'ai prise d'elle avec Huston qui m'a mis mal à l'aise. Elle souffrait beaucoup.

Susan Richards (auteure): Monty Clift était un peu comme  elle. Les acteurs que Dennis trouvait les plus humains sortaient souvent de l'Actor's Studio. Ils essayaient de rester eux-mêmes à Hollywood où tout le monde porte un masque. Et Monty Clift ne jouait pas ce jeu là.
Alain Bergala: L'homosexualité qu'il s'interdisait de faire savoir, névrose absolue, drogues, lui, il avait tout à la fois. Et c'est magnifique. Evidemment, la scène dans l'arrière-cour où ils sont tous les deux complètement destroy, parce qu'ils étaient réellement destroy. Et Huston détestant les homosexuels... En plus, c'était pas simple pour eux, le rapport avec Huston.
Marilyn Monroe: Ce travail peut être si... On essaie d'être sincère. Cela nous amène parfois au bord d'une sorte de folie. Ce n'est pas vraiment de la folie. Il s'agit plutôt d'essayer d'extraire de soi une part de vérité. Et c'est très dur. Enfin, disons, que c'est pas facile.
Alain Bergala: Marilyn, comme toutes les stars, contrôlait les images qu'on pouvait montrer d'elle. Sur les photos qu'elle ne voulait pas voir diffuser, on voit tout ce qui la menace. C'est à dire pour elle, la beauté n'était pas donnée, n'était pas acquise, qu'est ce qu'il a fallu de travail et d'efforts pour qu'on ait une autre image que ça. Cette lutte l'a tuée. D'être toujours une image, à un moment, ça ne tient plus. C'est le film où ça ne tient plus.
Eve Arnold: On l'a tous utilisée, cela ne fait aucun doute. Nous, photographes, devons accepter le fait qu'on a besoin de l'image des autres. Bien sûr, sans la photographie, Marilyn n'aurait jamais été Marilyn. On l'aurait jamais vue car c'est ainsi que beaucoup de gens l'ont découverte. C'est un cercle vicieux, tout le monde utilise tout le monde. Elle m'a utilisée pour l'aider à aller là où elle voulait, moi et des centaines d'autres. Je n'étais pas unique. J'était unique que dans le sens où elle faisait totalement confiance.

Elliott Erwitt: Les photographes qui ont travaillé sur ce tournage n'étaient pas des paparazzis. Nous étions des photographes Magnum. Personne ne cherchait à nuire ou à créer de scandales. Je ne pense pas qu'il y ait eu des gens comme ça parmi nous.
Voix Off: Le tournage des "Misfits" s'achève le 4 novembre 1960. Le lendemain, Clark Gable est victime d'une crise cardiaque dont il décèdera quelques jours plus tard. Rarement la frontière entre la fiction et la réalité fut aussi mince; et la proximité entre les photographes et les stars aussi grandes.
Alain Bergala: C'est un film 'bascule'. Le cinéma hollywoodien ne sera jamais plus la même chose qu'avant. C'est terminé, donc Il a filmé, en même temps, la décomposition d'un système.
Voix Off: Concurrencé par la télévision, le système des studios s'est essouflé. Et bientôt, les grands magazines suivront. Pour Magnum et le cinéma, une page se tourne.

Présentation de l'éditeur: On the 50th anniversary of Marilyn’s death, this beautiful book is an elegant pictorial celebration of the beloved star by the Magnum photographers who immortalized her. It’s been half a century since we lost Marilyn Monroe, but her presence in popular culture has never faded—due in part to the incredible abundance of photographs that were taken of her. Many of those pictures were taken by members of the Magnum photographic cooperative, and appear in this stunning collection that expresses every aspect of Marilyn’s multifaceted persona. Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Eve Arnold, Inge Morath, Philippe Halsman, Bruce Davidson, Dennis Stock, Bob Henriques, Erich Hartmann, and others capture Marilyn on and off the set. The images range from glamorous portraits to candid scenes of delicate intimacy. Marilyn is pictured filming movies such as Some Like It Hot and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes; also included in the book are Elliot Erwitt’s renowned shots of Marilyn wrangling horses on the set of The Misfits, her last film. In richly toned black and white as well as lustrous color, these photographs reveal Marilyn’s uncanny ease in front of the camera. Whether acting or exercising, putting on makeup or gracefully posing, Marilyn was a photographer’s dream. This celebration of her life will be a treasured keepsake for her millions of fans.

Souvenir du photographe Henri Cartier-Bresson qui est convié à un grand dîner organisé par la production et se trouve placé à côté de Marilyn: l'actrice est en retard. Henri pose son Leica sur sa chaise. Trois quarts d'heure plus tard, Marilyn arrive, salue tout le monde et regarde, déconcertée, sa chaise encombrée. Henri ne bouge pas. Elle reste quelques minutes debout, ne sachant que faire, puis lui demande d'enlever son boîtier : " Non, répond Cartier-Bresson, donnez-lui votre bénédiction d'abord ". Comprenant aussitôt, Marilyn posa un quart de seconde... Ses fesses sur le Leica de Henri.
