When it was released in 1997, Titanic has été a real tidal wave on the world of the seventh art. A real critical and popular success, the film alisé by James Cameron has relaunchedé interest is already there lively port&eac; on the history of the shipwreck, but also makes millions of spectators dream thanks to its tragic but very romantic love story between Rose, a first-class passenger corseted by her rank, and Jack, an artist of third class poor but free.

Even if the first half from Titanic was going smoothly before the terrible shipwreck that cost the lives, in reality, of thousands of people, the filming was not, however, a walk in the park for the crew. For Kate Winslet, even kissing Leonardo DiCaprio was "a nightmare". As she explains in a Vanity Fair video, the famous scene where the couple kissing on the bow of the ship to the strains of “My Heart Will Go On” remains difficult to watch: “When I watch that scene, I can see how I couldn't breathe in that damn corset. “It was a nightmare to shoot, because Leo couldn't stop laughing and we had to reshoot it four times because of the lighting.”

Rose's interpreter also explains that between two takes, it was she who took care of redoing the makeup, because when they kissed, their respective makeup flowed onto each other. "It'éwas such a mess… But I'm quite proud of this scene, because it's a film which continues &agrav; to delight the new generations who discover it." And, as Kate Winslet admits, & Each time the actress is on a boat, she is asked to reenact the scene. And sometimes she accepts, sometimes she refuses!
More than 25 years after its release, Titanic remains a cult film for several generations of spectators. It must be said that the feature film ;screening directedé by James Cameron has accumulatedé the exploits: he woné 11 Oscars while becoming one of the biggest box office successes worldwide, and this being, at the time of its release in 1997, the most expensive film ever produced. This drama recounting the sinking of the liner in 1912 has since been the subject of several re-releases. successful in cinema, in 3D in 2012 and in a restored version on February 8, 2023.

Titanic is also a film that propelled to the rank of stars its two main actors, Leonardo  DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Since then, they have both become actors renowned among the general public. However, the shooting of James Cameron's film was not carried out at all. simple, since it lasted more than eight months  and sometimes occurred under trying conditions.

Synopsis– Southampton, April 10, 1912. The Titanic, the largest ocean liner in the world, is preparing to sail. setting sail on its first voyage to New York. On board, the modest Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), third class passenger who won his poker ticket, meets Rose Dewitt Buckater (Kate Winslet), a beautiful first-class girl from the upper bourgeoisie and whom her mother Ruth (Frances Fisher) has promised & agrave; Caledon Hockley (Billy Zane), a wealthy aristocrat. Jack is going to initiate Rose à the festive world of third-class evenings, despite the the disagreements of Caledon and Ruth, well decided to prevent Rose from becoming infatuated with Jack. But although everything opposes them, the two young people will fall madly in love with each other and promise to run away together. the arrival of the liner. Their projects will sink at the same time as the Titanic which then hits an iceberg in the middle of an ocean. freezing water…

The true story of Titanic and its loyalty history

If the romance between Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) is invented for the needs of the script, the film traces the true story of the sinking of the Titanic, after the death of the Titanic. s having hité an iceberg in 1912. Several historical elements are sprinkled throughout the feature film to make it as close as possible to reality ;. During the production of Titanic, two historians contributed  their knowledge à James Cameron. Don Lynch and Ken Marschall, authors of The Great Illustrated History of the Titanic, worked with the director to ensure that the reconstruction of the shipwreck would be as faithful as possible to the drama that took place at the beginning of the twentieth century. While Rose and Jack, as well as their families, are fictional, they rub shoulders with real people, such as Captain Smith, Commander Smith, and the architect Joseph Bruce Ismay.

We can also see, during the shipwreck scene, a nod to the a couple who actually existed: they are Isidor and Ida Straus, two members of the first class of the boat, who ;eacute;decidedé to leave their place on the rescue canals to die together on the boat. They are represented in the film during a very serious scene ;s moving, during which a couple of elderly people, entwined, in a bed, waiting for death. If we do not know exactly how the captain of the boat died, several existing theories exist. his subject, one of the rumors states that he would have stayed well. back to sink with the Titanic, as shown in the film.

Titanic also takes liberties with History

Among the elements of the Titanic scenario which are not historically proven, we note the fact that Bruce Ismay would have put pressure on the captain so that the The ship goes faster. Ismay has always defended himself against such accusations, and historians tend to side with him. of the architect on this point. The architect was also involved in the project. exonerated accusations of misconduct that weighed on him after the sinking of the liner. The death of First Officer William Murdoch in the film was also controversial, since he is seen in the feature film shooting two men before killing himself. ;nbsp;If this scene is inspired by rumors of suicide, these have been denied by several observers and witnesses.
