Sean Connery in five films, “Bronx”, “Seberg”… What to see or re-watch on DVD or VOD?
Five films, five eras, five Sean Connery
He has shot sixty-eight films, fairy tales, thrillers, sci-fi adventures, melodies, war tales, Middle Eastern epics, westerns.Despite everything, Sean Connery never got off the ground.from 007's image.Forcibly, because he was the best.As soon as he tried to change his skin, he was ridiculed.How did the least secret secret agent in the world want to be… an actor? It was, and how! The proof by five.
Watch “Bons Kisses de Russie” (in VOD on Canal +), the second James Bond (1963): Sean Connery has made his mark.The former casket varnisher, theatrical halberdier, has become a sophisticated killer, a top seducer.He walks in an elegant suit in Istanbul, witnesses the plague of two unleashed girls, is threatened by Lotte Lenya, the wife of Kurt Weill, who has retractable slats, and he makes a pretty heart with the ex- Miss Rome, Daniela Bianchi.
We feel that Sean Connery is becoming the boss.Two years later, here he is in "The Hill of Lost Men" (VOD on Canal +), by Sidney Lumet.It is the anti-Bond fundamentally : Punished for insubordination, Sergeant Roberts is condemned to constantly climb a hill of sand.Modern-day Isyphus, he refuses to go up to the fire (it is the beginning of the Vietnam War).Sean Connery has succeeded in his conversion, brilliantly.
With "The Man Who Wanted To Be King" (VOD on Canal +), in 1975, he is at the top: in this version of Kipling's story, directed by John Huston, he replaces Clark Gable, chosen twenty-five years older.early (but the project was scrapped at the time).Gable was the "King" of the 1950s.Sean Connery took over the crown.
