About this deal

I just wish it had been a tv series where each thread was given the justice it deserved, and not entwined throughout because inevitably, there are snags and knots. The art of silence speaks to the soul, like music, making comedy, tragedy, and romance, involving you and your life. It was the intellectual minority who knew of him until he first toured the United States in 1955 and 1956, close on the heels of his North American debut at the Stratford Festival of Canada. The Art of Silence' sheds new light on his life and unique art form, which his family and companions keep alive to this day.

According to Marceau, when he was five years of age, his mother took him to see a Charlie Chaplin film, which entranced him and led him to want to become a mime artist. Marceau was married three times: first to Huguette Mallet, with whom he had two sons, Michel and Baptiste; then, to Ella Jaroszewicz, with whom he had no children. He inspires several generations of artists, among them his own grandson and family, who cast a new light on. Regisseur Maurizius Staerkle Drux versteht es, seine eigene Familiengeschichte (gehörloser Vater, der auch als Pantomime auftritt), Interviews mit den Verwandten und Schülern sowie das Filmen derer theatralischer Aktivitäten in sehr klug konzipierter Schnittfolge mit alten Aufnahmen des Meisters zu einem flüssigen Ganzen zu verbinden. Marcel Marceau ( French pronunciation: [maʁsɛl maʁso]; born Marcel Mangel; 22 March 1923 – 22 September 2007) was a French mime artist and actor most famous for his stage persona, " Bip the Clown".In November 1998, President Jacques Chirac made Marceau a grand officer of the Ordre national du Mérite. In 1944 Marcel's father was captured by the Gestapo and deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp, where he was killed. His extensive transcontinental tours included South America, Africa, Australia, China, Japan, South East Asia, Taiwan, Russia, and Europe.

He inspired several generations of artists, including his grandson and his family, who shed new light on his life’s work. He was schooled in the Paris suburbs at the home of Yvonne Hagnauer, while pretending to be a worker at the school she directed; Hagnauer would later receive the honor of Righteous Among the Nations from Yad Vashem. In 1995, pop megastar Michael Jackson, who had been friends with Marceau for nearly 20 years, planned a concert together with him for HBO, but the concert was canceled after Jackson was hospitalized for exhaustion during rehearsals.

Marceau's performance won him such acclaim that he was encouraged to present his first "mimodrama", Praxitele and the Golden Fish, at the Bernhardt Theatre that same year. As a tragicomic clown "Bip", the famous pantomime Marcel Marceau continues to inspire people all over the world. The Art of Silence is a documentary directed by Maurizius Staerkle-Drux, whose deaf father Christoph Staerkle is himself a mime influenced by Marcel Marceau.

Marceau held honorary doctorates from Ohio State University, Linfield College, Princeton University and the University of Michigan. He later appeared to overwhelming acclaim for extended engagements at such legendary American theaters as The Ford's Theatre in Washington, D. Two years after 2020’s Resistance depicted a fictionalized look at Marcel Marceau’s participation in the French resistance, The Art of Silenced is being pegged as the first documentary look at Marceau’s career, with his time in the war paving the way for how he would develop as a mime. In 2000, Marceau brought his full mime company to New York City to present his new melodrama, The Bowler Hat, previously seen in Paris, London, Tokyo, Taipei, Caracas, Santo Domingo, Valencia (Venezuela), and Munich. In 1974, he posed for artist Kenneth Hari and worked on paintings and drawings that resulted in a book and artwork in many museum collections.

The film features interviews with Marcel’s surviving family members, which includes his teenage grandson Louis Chevalier, who is trained as a dancer. In 1982, Le Troisième Œil, ( The Third Eye), his collection of ten original lithographs, was published in Paris with an accompanying text by Marceau. Influenced by silent film sizes such as Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, he created a unique art form from it after the war that his heritages continue to this day. In 1949, following his receipt of the Deburau Prize (established as a memorial to the 19th-century mime master Jean-Gaspard Deburau) for his second mimodrama, Death before Dawn, Marceau founded Compagnie de Mime Marcel Marceau, the only company of pantomime in the world at the time.
