Tony Leung, Jane March The Lover
Jane March - Wikipedia
It is lunchtime in the ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and a man is warming up chicken fillets for Jane March. Not the kind you eat, but those funny silicon pads that can be stuffed down a bra - preferably after they have been heated up with a hairdryer. By the age of 30, most of us have filled out enough not to require extra padding, but despite reaching that age, Miss March remains disconcertingly waif-like. There is something just a little bit contrary about Jane March, which is what French film director Jean-Jacques Annaud liked when he first spotted her picture on the cover of Just Seventeen. She was 'this little girl with a faintly bored air and the look of revolt in her eyes,' he said, a look he knew he could exploit in his adaptation of The Lover, Marguerite Duras' autobiographical novel based on her own seduction by a wealthy Chinese man in colonial Saigon. Jane was only 18 when she shot the movie, and 19 when it was released in Britain in She gave a subtle performance - astonishingly so for someone without any acting experience - but all that was overshadowed by the hype surrounding her steamy love scenes with Tony Leung.
