Andy Garcia on Elsa Zylberstein in ‘I’ve Loved You So Long’

Actors champion fellow colleagues in 2008 performances

Elsa has this very facile and very available emotional depth and spontaneity, which is very attractive. She delivers subtle and dissonant chords, and it gains momentum as it goes along. The undercurrent of what’s behind the eyes is what’s unique about how this movie is performed. It is not about the big scenes. It’s about the whole personality and how it is orchestrated. Kristin Scott Thomas is the protagonist, but Kristin’s and Elsa’s performances are joined at the hip. On the page, Elsa’s subtext may not appear as dramatic an issue as the subtext Kristin has, but there’s a great delicacy with which Elsa invites us to understand her character’s troubles and insecurities and how they relate to Kristin’s character. It is the overall crafting of the performance that is so beautiful to watch.
