Exclusive Video Interview: Mathieu Amalric and Vicky Krieps on ‘Hold Me Tight’

Check out more of our video interviews on our YouTube channel.

Mathieu Amalric’s new film Hold Me Tight follows a mother, Clarisse (Vicky Krieps), dealing with a separation from her family. As she processes what she has lost, audiences are invited on a rollercoaster ride that navigates truth, emotion, and reality and the way in which people cope with impossible situations.

I had the chance to speak with Amalric, a talent equally prolific for his work in front of and behind the camera, and Krieps, who embodies the role of Clarisse magnificently. They touched on the process of working together and the narrative journey of the film, particularly how they believe viewers should engage with the material.

Film summary:

Adapted from a stage play by Claudine Galéa, HOLD ME TIGHT stars Vicky Krieps as Clarisse, a mother coping with great emotional upheaval, and Arieh Worthalter (Girl) as Marc, the husband she leaves behind. Krieps gives a riveting performance as a woman on the run from her family for reasons that aren’t immediately clear.

Amalric’s sophisticated narrative alternates between scenes of Clarisse’s road trip and of Marc as he cares for their two children, Paul, and Lucie, a pianist prodigy. While giving clues along the way, Amalric keeps viewers uncertain as to the reality of what they’re seeing until the film’s final moments.
