This is called a thunderous comeback. Actor Brendan Fraser (the trilogy The Mummy) just received a standing ovation for his role as a lonely, obese, 600-pound man trying to reconnect with his teenage daughter. The video test.
Fraser and his 270 kilos: an applauded performance
Certainly less prestigious than the Cannes Film Festival, the Venice Film Festival is nonetheless one of cinema’s biggest venues. From August 31 to September 10, the festival awards the best films of the moment, in particular through its prestigious Golden Lion, the equivalent of the Palme d’Or.
While the festival is in full swing, a very moving scene took place yesterday. During the screening of The whale by Darren Aronofsky, the audience got up to make a standing ovation for actor Brendan Fraserwho interprets a 270 kg obese man on the threshold of his life.
A path strewn with traps
As a reminder, Brendan Fraser made a name for himself thanks to his role as Rick O’Connell in The Mummy (1999) and its sequels, the mummy returns (2002) and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008. But since the success of this trilogy, the actor has been more discreet on a professional level. On a personal note, Brendan Fraser said through a very moving testimony that he had suffered sexual assault by Philip Berk, former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Events that would have taken place in 2003, and that traumatized himleading him to remain silent for many years, fearing for his career.
To this is added crippling pain, particularly linked to his stunts during the filming of the trilogy The Mummyimposing long periods of convalescence on him and keeping him away from studies for almost seven years.
The canvas reacts
Therefore, it is an understatement to say that this return to grace was deserved. Praised for his performance that some believe can open the door to win the Oscar for Best Actor, outlined Brendan Fraser some tears at the time of the applause. A very moving scene that will remain in the annals of the festival. The video was widely shared and generated many reactions on the networks. in particular of certain personalities, such as the actor Dwayne Johnson. More generally, it was Fraser’s performance that received praise.
