Merci Docteur Rey
Synopsis

Put together a handsome 23-year-old with a penchant for personal ads, his opera-diva mother (Dianne Wiest at her glorious best), her impeccably coutured director and friend (the splendid Bulle Ogier), an enigmatically odd actress (the intriguingly skittish Jane Birkin), a few rent boys and Vanessa Redgrave. Add a good dose of narcissism, a little murder and a lost father. Mix with a great eye for visuals (the inimitable Paris as a backdrop), a wonderful soundtrack (from pop to Turandot) and a whimsical homage to film and celebrity. Mix together with a talent for plotting unrivalled since Agatha Christie, and you have the marvellous Merci Docteur Rey. Executive Producer Ismail Merchant has a great instinct for talent and brings together some of the best for Andrew Litvack's debut feature. For his part, Litvack proves worthy of his mentor's heritage in this hilarious and amoral tale.

ISMAIL MERCHANT

Producer
Born in Bombay, Ismail Merchant has lived and worked for most of his life in the West, completing his education at New York University where he earned his Masters Degree in Business Administration.
Merchant’s first film was a theatrical short, “The Creation of Woman,” which was nominated in 1961 for an Academy Award and was an official entry from the United States in the Cannes Film Festival that same year.  While en route to the Festival, Merchant met James Ivory, who agreed to form a partnership, Merchant Ivory Productions, to make English-language theatrical features in India for the international market.
It was not only the visual beauty and charm of India that attracted Merchant to begin making his films in India, but also the opportunity to finance his films with funds from frozen Rupee accounts of major American distributors. These accounts contained distribution proceeds that the Indian government would not allow to be repatriated, but which could be utilized under an agreement to make films in India.  “The Householder” was Merchant and Ivory’s first feature length film and the first Indian film to be distributed worldwide by a major American company, Columbia Pictures.  It was followed by more Indian features, all in some way funded wholly or in part by an American studio, including “Shakespeare Wallah” (1965), “The Guru” (1969), and “Bombay Talkie” (1970).
In addition to producing all of Ivory’s features and documentaries made since 1963, Merchant has directed a number of films and two television features. For television, he directed a short feature entitled “Mahatma and the Mad Boy,” and a full-length television feature, “The Courtesans of Bombay,” made for Britain’s Channel Four.  The first feature film he directed, “In Custody,” based on a novel by Anita Desai, and starring Shashi Kapoor, was filmed in Bhopal, India, and went on to win National Awards from the Government of India for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Costume and Best Production Design.  His second directing feature, “The Proprietor,” starred Jeanne Moreau, Jean-Pierre Aumont and Christopher Cazenove, and was filmed on location in Paris.
Merchant’s third feature film as Director, “Cotton Mary,” was set in Kerala, India and starred Madhur Jaffrey, Greta Scacchi, and James Wilby.  The film tells the tale of an Anglo-Indian nurse in search of her identity in Post-Colonial India. “The Mystic Masseur,” based on the novel by V.S. Naipaul, is Merchant’s latest work as Director, and was released in the spring of 2002. It was described by the New York Times as “a subtle, humorous, illuminating study of politics, power and social mobility.”
The American release of “The Golden Bowl” in April of 2001, starring Nick Nolte, Uma Thurman and Anjelica Huston, marked the Fortieth Anniversary of Merchant’s career in film production, a career that has already earned the Merchant Ivory team a place in The Guinness Book of World Records for the longest partnership in independent cinema. For over thirty years, Merchant Ivory Productions has endured as one of the most productive collaborations in cinema, bringing forth such films as “Shakespeare Wallah,” “Quartet,” “Heat and Dust,” “A Room with a View,” “Mr. and Mrs. Bridge,” “Howards End,” “The Remains of the Day,” “Jefferson in Paris,” “Surviving Picasso,” and “The Golden Bowl.”
Merchant is also a renowned chef and author of a number of books on cuisine, including Ismail Merchant’s Indian Cuisine; Ismail Merchant’s Florence; Ismail Merchant’s Passionate Meals and Ismail Merchant’s Paris: Filming and Feasting in France.  In addition, he authored a book about the making of the film “The Deceivers” in 1988 called Hullabaloo in Old Jeypur, and another about the making of “The Proprietor” called Once Upon a Time . . . The Proprietor.  His most recent book is entitled, My Passage From India: A Filmmaker’s Journey from Bombay to Hollywood and Beyond. Newsweek states “Ismail Merchant comes across as a charming raconteur” in its review of the book and writer Anita Desai comments “The lines he writes would be the envy of any novelist: he is incapable of writing one that is dull, slack or lifeless.”
In addition to numerous accolades Merchant has won in the world of film and literature, he is also an Honorary Doctor of Arts at Bard’s College, New York, Wesleyan College and the University of Illinois.  He has been honored by the Mayor of New York and the Maire de Paris, and received for his outstanding contribution to cinema the title of Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the Ministry of Culture in France. In 2002, the government of India bestowed upon Merchant the Padma Bhusan, the equivalent of a British knighthood.
The latest Merchant Ivory Production, “Le Divorce,” from the best-selling novel by Diane Johnson and adapted for the screen by Merchant Ivory’s longtime collaborators, James Ivory and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, stars Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts as two American sisters adrift in contemporary France and is a comedy, also starring a gifted supporting cast of French and American actors including Leslie Caron and Glenn Close.
