What did you think of this actress? Did she play the part or did she kill it?

In my opinion, I think she did very well. She was very atractive just like in the book and I think she got the idea of the charecter over without much dialouge. Her screams in the movie seemed very realistic and she was just a very good actress in general.

I thought she did a great job! She may not have had much to do, but her presence alone was enough to get the point across. A little bit of subtlety goes a long way--I wish the directors would take that approach for some of the other characters, instead of over-doing them to the point of making the performances too campy. But anyway, Fleur was great; beautiful, charming, and believable.

I thought, considering that she said like 10 words in a whole movie, any prettier girl could have done it. French or not..
but I guess she was ok. I just imagined the hair to be more blond, a lot longer, and a perfect straight nose.

I think she did a fine job, for what she had written for her. I just expected more veela moments in the movie.

I found it funny that most of the Beauxbaton girls were more good-looking than her. She looked quite ordinary actually, pretty girl nonetheless.

I just felt really confused about her hair. I mean, Fleur's hair is supposed to be her most distinctive physical feature, and they just ignored it, made it a mousetail instead...Of course, it isn't mentioned she's part Veela in the movie, so it's not mandatory, but still, it isn't all that hard to make?
Otherwise, I think she did the role very well.

I liked her. Shame we didn't see her meet Bill, but of course there wasn't time for everything. (Although there was time for pointless things, like Rita Skeeter, and not enough time for the confrontation with Voldemort and what came after.)
I hope they have her back in movie 5 and/or 6.

Why would they have her back in movie 5? She isn't in book 5!

I really liked the actress they chose to portray Fleur Delacour. She was just as pretty as what the book portrays Fleur to be, in my opinion. Also, even though she was not given very many lines she got the point of her character across very easily. I really wished they would have given her more lines but if she's in the future movies (6th) maybe she will have more lines.

They made her kind of wimpy,she didnt seem to be as positive and assertive as she was in the book,but I thought she made good fleur.And I agree they needed to do more with her hair,but as staed in alot of threads we wonder if Kloves and the last 2 directors every read any of the books.

Kloves did. I mean he read the 6th book, so he must have read 4th. How do you expect him to write a script if he hadn't read the book? lol. Mike newell also said that he has read the 4th book.

If they have at least given Clemence a wig with the hair like it's described in the book, it would have been perfect.

She wasn't quite as beautiful or haughty, but I thought she did a wonderful job. One of the few pleasant surprises in the movie. She was a bit too likeable tho. One of *** reasons I love the character Fleur is that she's so arrogant that she makes every girl hate her. Actually, all the Beauxbaton girls seem to be jealous of and hate each other. Totally over the top and funny. Then, she becomes loveable when she shows vulnerability during the 2nd task. You don't really like her until then.

The movie Fleur was pretty much likeable since you first meet her. Not as much fun, but her character is a relatively unimportant part of the overall plot so I don't stress that much on the changes.

I agree. In the 6th book there will be no reason for any of the girls(Mrs. Weasley, Hermione, and Ginny) to be upset about her engagement to Bill. There's no reason not to like her, they made her too nice and kinda wimpy, as someone mentioned before. But, as i doubt that the directors are going to follow the book so close, it doesnt matter. Fleur (or clemence) did a great job, i loved how in the end, she was the only one (Besides the teachers) not cheering and clapping for harry, she realized something was wrong and that scream was like the cherry on a sundae, a perfect finish to such a great scene!

I loved Clemence, but she seemed a bit too sporty to be Fleur. Fleur was always a bit more stuck up in my head.

I think she did a good job. Frankly i'm glad they cut her character down, she didn't have many lines, but i wasn't bothered by that at all.

I think it will be easy to make her more "annoying" in the movies to come when she is interested in bill. Then again who knows, that may be cut out of the movies all together. I highly doubt Bill and Fleur's wedding is the apex of all the excitement in the series...but i guess one should never assume.

She played the role well although she had very few lines she dident seem like a veela. And yes her best line was a screem of horror. but i agrea she seemed a littel too likabel. But other than likabilety they got her rite.

She was a very good actress for the part.
She needed more lines, though. Wasn't very much development of her character. She seemed more sweet and timid than snobby and proud.

I thought she was alright but I've always thought that Fleur was very stunning. The actress was undoubtedly beautiful but there was nothing striking about her. She was just sort of ordinary! And she was no way near haughty and condescending enough!

I don't know if a lot of people know this, but the actress who played Fleur was 23.

But, I thought she looked the right age, good actress, spoke french very well [well, she's french, I'm assuming she would], and was definately pretty enough. Thumbs up for me.

I thought she did a very nice job. Despite what a lot of people think, I though she was very pretty and even though she wasn't as veela-like as could be hoped (not that it mattered because I doubt it will be mentioned at all in the movies), she was still lovely. She didn't get very many lines (don't think I heard he speak at all until after the second task), but for what she did speak she did fine. Lovely french accent (she is french after all, so it is to be expected).

I think that this actress was a little too athletic! Fleur seemed very spoiled, very rude, and very stuck up, kind of like a stereo typical daddys girl. She was a good actress it just was so not like the book! but i think GoF was the best HP movie yet! so she wasnt bad but i just hope shes differnt in HBP becasue she just needs to play the spoiled pretty rude stuck up girl! it will just make it so she fits the book1

See, the thing that makes Clemence Posey so much hotter than Emma Watson is the age; Clemence is 22 and Emma is only 15, and thusly not legal... I do think when Emma is 18 she will be very pretty, but Clemence is in no way ugly at all....

Despite a kind of questionable acting background... I thought she was pretty good :) I didn't know what to expect because of that. But like someone had mentioned, she wasn't as beautiful as I had envisioned. Not to insult the actress in any way, but I think I expected more of a glamorous, fantastic beauty. But where the veela thing wasn't emphasized or even explained I guess it wasn't necessary either... and she didn't say too much :lol: she didn't really say enough to be liked or disliked...

She was great in the movie. But she wasn't the Fleur that I imagined while reading GoF. Clemence is pretty, I know. But she's not too pretty. Im sorry. Well. Shes a veela. And a veela should be like a perfect blonde haired girl or something like that. I imagined her to be VERY VERY VERY pretty. Althoug Clemence is pretty, don't get me wrong, I do like her. But she isn't my Fleur. lol.

Same here. I thought of her as white-blonde, long hair, big blue eyes, and pale skin. The movie didn't really show her the "snobby" side, for example in the book she calls Harry "a little boy" and complains about Hogwarts food and decorations. These aren't necessary, but someone else mentioned, she was sporty.

I agree. I was actually expecting more from her in the movie. Im not sure in what way, but it seemed like her presence wasn't what I expected it to be. That probably has something to do with the veela aspect not being introduced, but that really didn't matter in the long run. I thought the actress who played Fleur did a fairly good job, ecspecially when Harry returned with Cedric's body...a very bone-chilling scream that brought the crowd to their feet. Overall, I wasn't dissappointed with her character, but since we only got to see her in a few scenes its really hard to go in depth about her performance.

I think she was fantastic in the movie considering she didn't have that many lines. Clémence Poésy has a pretty good acting background compared to most of the other 'unknowns', and if you've seen her other roles, you'd see what a versatile actress she is. She grew into the role so well that you'd probably not recognize her in her other films. But I agree with everyone else, she wasn't as beautiful as they describe her in the book.. But I'd expect it'd be hard to find an actress who's french, has fleur's flawless blonde flippy hair, and looks like an ethereal goddess of beauty as well as the acting chops to match. Clémence is still gorgeous in my opinion. :blush:

Fleur was definitaly not what I thought she was going to be. I thought she was going to be this perfect, gorgeous blonde. She is supposed to be part-veela, because of her grandmother. Same with her sister. I thought they were going to be much different.

November 25th, 2005, 5:05 pm
I was a little bit put out about the fact that they left Veelas out of the movie altogether but as far as the actress she pulled a great Fleur, very much in character and a lot nicer that the Fleur I had pictured in my head, but believable and all. With so little lines she deserves credit for standing out at times and knowing when and how to blend with the background.

Yes, but according to the movie there is no Veela. The movie isn't operating exactly like the book. Fleur in the books is part-Veela. Fleur in the movies is a beautiful French witch and very talented (she was picked from the Goblet after all). I thought Clemence was perfect.

Well, it would be close to impossible for them to find a girl who would look exactly like a Veela, wouldn't it? In the end, all the actors are merely humans, so we have to be able to overlook some flaws here and there.

That being said, I think she looked all right. Loved her hair. :blush:

she had like 2 lines

I believe she said more than that in the film. What about the scenes in which she thanked Harry for saving Gabrielle? I'm pretty sure she had lines then as well.

We didn't see the Veelas in the Quidditch cup, so they didn't say that she was part-Veela. And... Well, yes, she didn't have a lot of acting. But in the book she looks like an arogant witch - that's all. And in the movie she looks smarter and has a better charakter.

Clemence Poesy doesn't look ugly. As a matter of fact, I thought she was very pretty in the film. It is true that she had lack of lines, but she doesn't come up as much in the books as well.
I loved Krum. He had like no lines whatsoever, but I loved it when he said "This place is only for champion, and friends." I love that. He sounds so fierce and mad. Off topic.
Well, I'm just looking forward to her in the Half Blood Prince.

Fleur is a quaternary character whom we will never see again in the movies. Her character really comes across as a very negative stereotype of French women (i.e., a conceited nymphomaniac), so that obviously had to be changed.

However, Harry Potter has one lead character and two secondary ones. In the book, Fleur really is nothing more than a tool for developing Ron and, to lesser extents, Hermione (we see her intense jealousy at Ron's reactions to Fleur) and Harry (who is much more immune to the femme fatale than are most males his age).

One change that I would have made: I would have had Fleur be the one Imperiused into attacking Cedric. Having Fleur be an easy victim in two of the tasks just made her look like, well, a girl playing a man's game. Slightly bolder adaptation could have made it appear that Fleur had been bewitched to disqualify her and allow Krum to win.

Krum then could have been shown being overcome by the maze. That would have divied the "wimped out" factor equally among males and females.

December 4th, 2005, 7:06 pm
I agree with the lack of lines thing. But i wasnt happy with the actress either(though i cant think of one that should have played fleur instead). But ts what happens when you love the book and then see it on screen. If the director doesnt love the books,not just respect them or anything.. but if he/she doesnt love it you can tell in detail. Like they didnt even mintion that fleur was a veela, so no one is going to realy understand why ron was so....:scared: Barty Jr. escaped from azkaban did he? I thought sirius was the only one who ever did that? Are they trying to rob Sirius of that record or what? :p off topic i know. anyways, i thought that they did a good job in that the actress always looked good even when she had just been under water and attacked by grindilows.:tu:

I thought she did a nice job, though I have to agree with a review I read which said: "from all the things that sadly had to be cut-off, Fleur Delacour's character was the one that suffered the most. Appearing in the Triwizard tournament’s tasks only to be disqualified 2 minutes later." I gotta say, that’s true, I mean she was in the water during the second task like 1 minute and then just a few minutes after they entered the maze she was already so desperate and wanting to get out. But well, that wasn’t her fault. She did a nice job with the time that was given to her, I especially loved when she spoke in French, so sexy :P

I wasn't disappointed about her at all. I was actually positively surprised how good the actress was. It's true that she didn't have much lines to say, but she is not that important and I don't think we'll see her again (not even in HBP).

December 4th, 2005, 8:16 pm
The actress herself was wonderfull. I liked the way she screamed when Harry and Cedric got out of the maze. She wasn't given many lines, true, but that's not her fault aye. And she did look good to me, maybe not the way I imagined her, but I gave up those hopes up a long time ago:P The movies are just never going to be the exact image you see when reading.

I was not dissappointed with Fleur at all in this movie. Her lack of lines didn't bother me that much and she was the only one of the new characters that resembled what I had pictured when reading the book.

The actress herself was wonderfull. I liked the way she screamed when Harry and Cedric got out of the maze. She wasn't given many lines, true, but that's not her fault aye. And she did look good to me, maybe not the way I imagined her, but I gave up those hopes up a long time ago:P The movies are just never going to be the exact image you see when reading.

That was a brilliant comment. That's what I had in mind, but I couldn't have put it better. :P

Like they didnt even mintion that fleur was a veela, so no one is going to realy understand why ron was so....:scared:

Well, for those who haven't read the books, it could be generally assumed that Ron was (or should I say is?) going through a phase in which he is generally interested in girls. Also considering the fact that he was staring at the behinds of the Beauxbatons students when they made their entrance (ahem), I think the director was merely trying to press on the fact that he was enthralled at them being pretty and all.

Fluer isn't my favorite character at all, so I was not the disappointed at her lack of lines, I think she was in it enough and was glad they didn't event any situation where she would have had more dialog than she deserved. I think noone could have been as perfect as the character in the book, but I think the actress was pretty enough for those that haven't read to book to realize that everyone thought her a great beauty.

I get that it would be difficult to find a girl that looks like a veela, but I still don't get why she had to have a ponytail instead of the silvery sheet of hair. Clemence is gorgeous, but still, I expected her to be 'blonder'. I mean, completely silver hair, like Halle berry in x-men.

Other than that, there was no disappointment. She had a small part, but she did it very well, with grace and the french, if not veela, charm.

I would have liked to see more from Fleur in the movie. She is a champion, and all the previous marketing campaign was giving the champions quite some protagonism.
I believe from what we saw from the movie, she is a good actrice and good looking. But I think they could have changed her hair a bit, make it more glowing, with silvery shining. I mean, If they cut away Ralph Fiennes nose, they can modify some blond hair, don't they?
Oh, and I would have simply LOVED to see just one second of Fleur looking at Bill. It would have been such a "AWWWW" in the whole theatre.

I was upset that the veela thing wasn't in the books ..I know that they can't include everything but they managed the leprachuans of the Irish team so they could have done a few veelas! I thought Fleur was pretty but not what I had been expecting. They could have done something to give her a bit of a shimmer or something.

Apropos of nothing. I have to say that the guy playing Krum is HOT. And I am a sucker for a European accent :D

Well, I honestly thought I was going to be majorly dissapointed with Clemence as Fluer....even after I had seen GOF previews I was like "I'd make a better Fluer then her!" but then I saw the film & was pleasantly surprised(I suppose the trailers/previews didn't show enough of her). I think she's very pretty & did a great job with the lines & amount of screen time she had. I still think, like most, that they could've mentioned she was part Veela(& kept the actual veela in the film), & they could've done her hair better.

Fleur is a one-dimensional, stereotypical Frenchwoman. She doesn't do much, except lose the Triwizard Tournament.

In what way is her portrayal in the film "lame"?

The actress was pretty enough for me. Not mentioning the veela-story was a safe route to go, so some fans wouldn't be all "she's not pretty enough to be part of one X0" (though they still are doing it ^^; ). I was thoroughly disappointed by the lack of lines for Fleur and Krum though. They didn't feel like competition at all, especially with Madame Maxine and Karkoraff seeming so "schemeless" and "fair" to me :shrug:

I thought in the film she was pretty (especially because she wasn't supposed to be a veela) but she was represented weakly. She didn't seem strong enough. It kind of gave across the point that girls are weaklings compared to boys, which i don't agree with. But i don't think they were trying to say that so it was fine. It was not a MASSIVE dissipointment.

To be honest with you, Clemence is plain looking. She doesn't have any like out of ordinary qualities about her that make her beautiful. I was expecting someone just drop dead beautiful as she was veela but I found all of the other Beauxbatons girls much more pretty.

She did fine in the film, she is a good actress. She should have had a bit more lines though. But she'll be back for movie 6, hopefully, if they don't cut her out.

I though she was good for the role she very pretty and I thought she had enough lines as she doesnt really say much in the book anyway.The only thing is that she seemed to nice and not as self centered but overall I though she was fine.

That is true, but I wish they would've made it seem like a competition. Have a little tension. Make fans who've never read the books (and even even the book readers as well) think "Oh...well maybe Harry actually wont win the competition..."

By the middle of the second task a guy somewhere in the front row said "Well, Harry's going to win this all. They did have to ship the french girl and italian guy (:lol:) to England to prove that. Why are we staying for the end?" and his partner was like "Well yeah... but there is a twist in the end though!"

But if anyone tell me that Paris Hilton is a veela, I'll believe it because veela's beauty is sort of vain...and look at her! this is definitely a vain beauty, it's written all over her
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y26/yaampyun/paris20hilton.jpg

Fleur never approved of Hogwarts Castle. It was too cold and dark, its décor was outdated, its food was too heavy, and of course there was that little problem of the Headmaster letting a "little boy" in on the Triwizard Tournament. Fleur was probably satisfied with the amount of attention she secured from the male students at Hogwarts.

She found life at the Weasleys' a bit dull and too housework-centred, and was at odds with Mrs. Weasley on many things, from her taste in music to Nymphadora Tonks' appearance.

There's more to beauty than just looks, ya know.

Paris just doesn't have the stunning looks that I think Fleur should have. The way she holds herself, the way she smiles.... I don't know, perhaps I'm judging more by the way Paris Hilton acts than by her looks alone, but I can't imagine her as Fleur in the movie, or someone who looks just like her.

I think Fleur in the GoF was petty good. She was tiny of build and with strikingly pretty eyes. She was very European looking which is good.

I would have hated to see her as another Hollywood Stereo type with BIG EYES, WHITE TEETH and BIG LIPS.
Beauty is not only what we see when we open a Vogue magezine or watch an episode of One Tree Hill.

She was supposed to be french and she delivered it perfectly. :tu:

"But if anyone tell me that Paris Hilton is a veela, I'll believe it because veela's beauty is sort of vain...and look at her! this is definitely a vain beauty, it's written all over her"

Paris Hilton is not beautiful ... It is an interesting difference of point of wiew, because in France nobody found her gorgeous ...
But we're getting far from the subject ... I'm surprised to see that for non-french people, Fleur appears nymphomaniac ! It is not how she is depicts in French translation (maybe it is just so it doesn't hurt us), but if describe her like this just because she wanted a date with Cedric, you exagerate a little bit ...
I think that Fleur is more someone attracted by greatness, in beauty and in heart qualities, as she prooved it in HBP. And if she make fun of Hogwart castle, it is understandable... L'académie de Beauxbatons must have been constructed like Versailles Castle, wich is more attracting than a gloomy castle in Scotland .
I am sorry if I have hurt somebody with my english or my ideas ... But I think that Fleur deserved a better place in film four ...

Some people confuse sleazy with beautiful. Paris Hilton is sleazy... that's her shtick, her appeal. Sleazy can be appealing in its own way, and there are many stars who have made their mark and fortune by being intentionally sleazy (Madonna comes immediately to mind).
I was also disappointed in the choice for Fleur, as the Fleur of the book was a jaw-dropping, traffic-stopping, completely wholesome beauty whose appeal did not rely on flaunting anything... she was a veela! A point totally missing in the movie, which makes Ron's asking her to the dance a non sequiter in the movie.
The concept of 'beauty', by the way, is dependent on the society, of course. But one thing is nearly universal (and nearly universally ignored by women) - as a general rule, the women that men find to be traffic-stoppingly beautiful are NOT skinny! Not fat, but definitely with some 'meat on their bones,' as we say in Texas. [The foregoing paragraph was a gratuitous aside ;-) ]

They might just chop Bill and Fleur's storyline out of Movie 6 altogether, it isn't crucial- so it doesn't really matter. That said, I think introducing Veela and explaining that she was part Veela would've taken too much time, so they just made her a really attractive, poised French girl instead. And it worked. Clemence Poesy did a brilliant job as Fleur, and it seems unbelievable to think we don't actually hear her speak till the Second Task- she has screen presence enough to more than make up for it.

I think that they should keep Fleur in book 6 (in the movie). I'd just like to see more of her. AND I would like to see Bill and Fleur's wedding. It might not be as crucial but I would like to see it. As well as Lupin and Tonks' wedding (if they do decide to get married of course).

I think that it will depend on book 7, because if the wedding of Fleur and Bill is that important, they will have to put it in the last film ... And mention it on the fifth one , no ?
I hope they would keep C. Poesy in the other films but I don't think there is much we can do ... But they don't seem to really care on what is gonna happen on other book in the films so ... all the response are comming with book 7 !. Ho, just, this is a real beauty :

in terms of acting i think she did a fine job. her character didnt have much written for her, but what she did have i think she did fine. in terms of physical apperence i was not as happy, i was expecting her hair to be complet;y different, longer, blonder, and for some reason i had this mental image that it would just kinda float in the wind. lol. not to say she wasnt pretty, she is. but i think it is sooo hard to find an actress that will meet everyones expectations. we all have different images in our minds as we read the books.

Same here. if I looked her liike, I wouldn't be complaining either. It was the director's decision to drop the whole veela thing from the books so that Fleur wasn't playing a veela, but just a pretty French girl. There was this one line that had my head scratching on whether she could act, and that was when she said "you saved her life, even though she was not yours to save..." something like that anyway. That part was done with a little too much drama, but besides that she did very well. I don't really know how well she does in other movies, because I haven't seen her act in anything besides Harry Potter, but it helps that she's fluent in both languages. She was able to convey emotion during the third task especially well, and she gave a very convincing scream when Krum got her in the maze. So, sorry if I repeated something that other people have said - I don't have the time to look over all those pages, but overall, I think she did a great job as Fleur.

(This was not ment to offend) No offence, but isn't hating a person soley based on their looks kind of superficial? Did you hate her acting too, or was it just the fact that you didn't find her attractive?

Anyway, I think that Clemence did a fairly well, as others have said, she didn't have many lines, but she made the most of what she had. I particularly liked the part when she saw Cedric's body. You could see the horror on her face. I think she was pretty good at conveying emotions through facial expressions. She wasn't as I imagined Fleur, but she really exceeded my expectations :).

Um, I still think Clémence is prettier. And I agree with rotsie- if I looked like her, I wouldn't complain. When I first went to see GoF, it wasn't till I was out here and discussing it that I realised she's actually had all of three lines in the film: she has a fantastic thing called screen presence which allows her to get noticed in every frame she's in whether she speaks or not. Aside from the scene after Cedric and Harry's return, I really liked this one moment in the tent before the First Task when Rita was riling Harry and Hermione and Fleur gave this amused little smile in the background when Krum spoke up. It's a small detail but it matters.

Im an actress and I played a mute character once it alot togher than it appears cause you have to express emotions threw body languge and your eyes. I thought she was superb. Besides fleur my fave character

she wasn't really what i pictured fleur to be like.. i was thinking more straight silky long hair, tall, and drop dead gorgeous with a kinda mystical/magical touch. afterall she's supposed to be related to those magical people who are really pretty. (i forget what they're called =/)

She wasn't like the Fleur I imagined. She should have been more ethereal. Her acting was OK, but I dunno, I really thought Fleur was stronger. Ms. Poesy (yeah, I know, there should have been an accent, tell it to my keyboard!) portrayed her as a weak, even hysterical character.
She can play strong women, however. She was Mary Queen of Scots in "Gunpowder, treason and plot", or whatever that film was called.

Um, I still think Clémence is prettier. And I agree with rotsie- if I looked like her, I wouldn't complain. When I first went to see GoF, it wasn't till I was out here and discussing it that I realised she's actually had all of three lines in the film: she has a fantastic thing called screen presence which allows her to get noticed in every frame she's in whether she speaks or not.

Ah, I agree with all of that, especially with not noticing she only had three lines - the whole screen presence thing is such a Fleur attribute too.

I personally thought she was good. She was very convincing as Fleur, and her scream when Harry returned with Cedric was chilling and conveyed the horror of the situation. I definitely hope Clémence comes back for six and seven.

I thought she fit the role pretty darn good, I can't wait to hear her in HBP, hope she returns. I think though that she could have been prettier, don't get me wrong she was pretty, but I was expecting her to have one of those drop dead gorgius looks that just leaves every guy in a fantasy land during the scenes she's in.

Considering how nonexistant her part was they should have hired a blond model or Amy Smart (who is PERFECT for the part) to pull it off. I'm sorry, but half my gbuds are prettier than her (the other half are guys ^_^), heck they'r 10x prettier than her! This girl looked plain and simply unattractive. I don't imagine a guy stopping in his tracks to be 'wowed' by her.

It's like that band who sings "don't cha wish ur gf was as hot as me" n the girls aren't much of a lookers. In movie land looks are exteremly important to the character we are portraying...if it's a veela then she MUST be drop-dead-gorgeous in order for us to get the full effect, not just sort of pretty. It's like having Hagrid played by a slim attractive man....it doesn't work like that.

One movie that truly underestands this was 'memoirs of a geisha' where the girls were definetly pretty enough for the roles...and it made the events realistic. It also shows that yes there are lots of beautiful woman who can act!

I imagined veelas as really just insanely gorgeous. Someone that you couldn't even think around. While Clemence was pretty, she just looked like an ordinary person. I went to see the movie with a friend and we were both disappointed with her part.

I really liked her as Fleur. I thought she was great. Its a bit annoying that people are saying that she wasn't gorgeous enough and all that. Fleur is supposed to be a pretty girl, and not any blonde on the street would have the Fleur jenesaisquois.

She was only alright for me. I kinda wished they had left in her Veela storyline but I guess it wasn't that important. I liked her well enough but she was not memorable.

She's a good actress, but she wasn't how I imagined Fleur at all. She should be very attractive being part veela even though it wasn't mentione in the movie, it is mentioned on the Harry Potter movie website.

The problem is, I think...everyone's thinking "Hollywood" gorgeous. This girl is French, and she is stunning! I just saw it again tonight in IMAX and thought she was just beautiful. Plus, we usually only see her in her competitive gear. The shots where she is walking in the courtyard....gorgeous. No one really looks absolutely perfect with their hair back in a tight bun and sweatsuit, or hair wet, or messy and sweaty.

Amy Smart? Amy Smart? I can't think of any angle from which she'd be good to play Fleur. She just looks bug-eyed, anorexic and in no way French. Clémence Poésy, IMO, fitted all the attributes Fleur should have- grace, poise and presence. I've already spoken of the fact that I didn't notice she hadn't spoken at all till Gabrielle was pulled out of the lake. People really do need to think beyond Hollywood's image of what beauty is, because I honestly don't see what was wrong with Fleur's looks. Nothing, IMO.

I think Clemence didn't a wonderful job as Fleur. She was exactly as I had pictured her in the books. I can't wait to see what kind of job she does in the other movies with the character!

Yes, I agree with this. I don't really get why some people say she's not pretty enough. If you look closely, she's really very pretty. I was pleased that they chose someone who looks very French. I think some people were expecting the typical "Hollywood" gorgeous, you know, the girl with long, straight blond hair, probably big, blue eyes, pale yet radiant skin... sort of the Californian beauty, maybe. The "all-Amercan girl". Fleur is supposed to be French, therefore, she's supposed to have the French beauty, like Clemence has.

Apart from my initial slight annoyance that her hair should be longer, I thought she did a great job. When she bowed at everyone after all the Beauxbatons students did their routine, she was really graceful. The way she carried herself was really natural, I was stunned. Then later, when she was walking back and forth in front of the trophies with Viktor and Cedric, she looked exactly as she should, like a pretty schoolgirl holding herself with integrity. Her biggest scene in the film was probably the part where she was thanking and kissing Harry and Ron for helping to save Gabrielle. I thought she did great at that part. I, as a viewer, could feel the anxiety she was feeling over her sister and her gratefulness that Harry saved her. I hope they bring her back for HBP, I thought she was under-used in GoF, I actually felt pity for her that they made her character seem kind of weak there.

I couldn't believe it when people started saying that she wasn't 'pretty enough' before the movie came out. What a load of codswallap.
I also think that she had an incredible screen presence.

she was a good actress, but i dont like the way she looked- they could have lightened her hair, left it down, and curled it a bit.

They could have at least tried to make her more attractive, in stead of just leaving her face bare and putting her hair in a pony tail.

It remains to be seen if the character Fleur will even be in movies 6 and 7. They producers may decide that for time constrainsts, among other things, to leave out the whole Fleur/Bill relationship. This would mean that there will be no wedding in movie 7. In that case they may have to use some other means to develop any story lines developed during the wedding scene in the book.

Then that would mean we have seen the last of Clemence Poesy in the Harry Potter movies.

I think as far as her character in the script was developed, Clémence did a good job... The problem was that the Fleur from the book is completely different from the one in the movie. Movie Fleur doesn't have any of the arrogance and poshness Fleur has in the books. So for the few scenes we saw Clémence in, I think she was okay for the part...

I agree 100% She was missing something that made us love and hate Fleur in the books. Like she was too nice.

There was a lot missing in GOF that would have rounded out the characters better. I agree with many of the posters that Fleur was more likeable than written in the book, though.

I'm sorry. I don't mean to be rude or anything, but I don't think she was that pretty! In the book, she was part veela and it even says in HBP that she has/had such "breath-taking beauty" that she seemed to glow when she entered the twins' room to give Harry his breakfast. I know that very few women really glow :rolleyes: or are that beautiful, but IMO I think they could have found someone prettier. Besides, she barely acted in the movie. Sometimes the acting makes up for other things.

I liked the way she played Fleur: the change in characterisation was probably the screenwriter's and director's decision, so she can't really help that. She played just what she was told to. But I do have a feeling she'd have been just as effective if they'd stuck to having her portray snooty BookFleur.

but the girls did have a reason to not like fleur! she was constantly insulting everybody!

As for Clemence, I think that she was a good fleur but I thought for the looks part she was way underdone. I thought she was supposed to glow like some angelic being or whatever. they didn't talk about the veela so I guess it wouldn't make much sense but you know, she just seemed like another blonde girl with a nice butt, not fleur.

I was quite happy with Fleur. I don't know how the casting directors would possibly get an impossibly beautful girl like Fleur is in the books to play her on film. Also, having her glow would appear kind of childish in the eyes of someone who did not read the books and did not read of her unhumanly presence. I think the casting was done very well with Fleur. Any guy in high school would love her.

having her glow would appear kind of childish in the eyes of someone who did not read the books and did not read of her unhumanly presence.

Actually, come to think of it, it would be really weird if they did that. Those who didn't read the books would be like,"Why is that girl glowing like that? Why? Is it supposed to show how much Harry is entranced with her beauty? (because it's all from Harry's perspective)". Unless they actually mention how she is supposed to be part Veela, but I don't think that would work properly unless they have the Veela scene in the QWC to show how they are like. Otherwise, it would seem kind of childish and silly to have someone suddenly point out that,"She is part Veela, that is why she is so beautiful. Veelas are all really beautiful", or something like that.

I liked the strong screen presence Clemence had in GoF. In the few scenes and incredibly limited number of lines she had, for some reason, still created a reasonable ammount of effect in the mood/atmosphere of the scenes. For some reason, I got the impression that she could do a bigger role very well if she had the chance to.

ehhhhhhhhhh...I think her hair should have been silver like the Malfoy's. The Malfoy's look more Veela than she did. I guess if I would have to decide, I gueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeess she did a good job....she didn't say much and even though she is an authentic french woman, she didn't have as thick of an accent as I thought Fleur would, given Jo's over-emphasis of Fleur's language barrier. Clemence looks like she has too defined a muscle structure in her face, good and bad. I also wasn't sure if I liked how they toned down her superficialness...eh...I give her a 7.5/10.

Drusilla
June 27th, 2006, 7:58 am
Come on, she did a job good enough for me not to realise until the discussion started that she hadn't uttered a word in the film till Harry pulled her sister out of the lake. Screen presence counts for a lot and she had it, as the saying goes, in spades.

Her problem was pretty much the same as Stanislav's, they pretty much completely cut her part out of the movie. Mike Newell admitted to not having read HBP, so he didn't know she'd be coming back (this just came to mind, I don't know if it was him, the script writing, or the editing that cut out her parts). I really liked her on the "Meet the Champions" DVD feature. A lot of my friends were complaining that she wasn't nearly pretty enough, to which I was like "gees, that's pretty mean." She was pretty enough to catch your attention for sure, and that's plenty enough.

I thought many of the other Beaubaton girls easily out-prettied her. Expecially the blonde always shown in the front. I didn't find her pretty at all, sorry. Fleur is suppose to be amazingly pretty, and a crooked nose just doesn't fit the bill. As mean as it sounds, thats my opinion.
