The last time I saw Lambert Wilson in person, he was performing his tribute to Yves Montand at the French Institute Alliance Française in New York. He was Jacques Cousteau in Jérôme Salle's The Odyssey (L'Odyssée) and now in Hélène Fillières' Raising Colors (Volontaire), co-written with Mathias Gavarry, he is Commander Rivière at the École Navale. The Commander is lovingly called 'the monk' by the chief training officer Albertini, played by Alex Descas. Laure (Diane Rouxel) in her twenties and with a first-rate education, decides to accept a job offer in the administration of the French Navy. Her mother (Josiane Balasko), a famous stage actress, is particularly upset and vocal about this turn of events.

Beautiful and poetic by Anne-Katrin Titze

Amanda director Mikhaël Hers: "Vincent Lacoste is naturally very intuitive and Stacy Martin, maybe due to her double nationality, is more cerebral, more rational as an actor."

French Director Cyril Morin Recreates New York 1984 with Love and Sadness

French Director Cyril Morin Recreates New York 1984 with Love and Sadness
NY84” will have a gala opening and theatrical release this October 14 at the Arena Theater in Hollywood.

A unique venue for a unique film written and directed by Cyril Morin and starring Sam Quartin, Chris Schellenger and Davy J. Marr, “NY84” follows the adventures of three young artists in the downtown New York art scene in the early 1980s. Young and carefree, Kate, Anton, and Keith party, photograph, paint, sing, and play their way through the clubs and lofts of Alphabet City.

The party ends in 1984 when Anton and Keith contract a mysterious illness known as the “gay cancer.” We gain an intimate glimpse into their creative and emotional lives as the three lose their youth and innocence.

Cyril Morin

This is a lyrical poetic paen to those times some of us were lucky enough to have lived through. The sexual revolution and its sexual freedom in effect then for the newly liberated homosexual community, also opened the way for Kate to express herself. And it opened a door for transexuals, women and the whole diversity of humanity to assert itself today.

Cannes 2012. Cineuropa's Contenders

on the set of Amour

It's been a couple of weeks since the French magazine Premiere posted "Cannes 2012: Le buzzomètre," a list of over 30 films, each of which were assigned a numerical probability of its making the lineup at Cannes this year. Speculation has only grown hotter, of course, with an official announcement slated for April 19; Critics' Week and the Directors' Fortnight will follow on April 23 and 24, respectively. "Paris is rife with rumors about who will make it," reports Fabien Lemercier at Cineuropa. "Several films by 'big fish' have not been seen yet, and many who have already shown their film are eagerly awaiting news."

A few days ago, a French blog pulled an April Fools' Day prank that thoroughly ticked off Cannes artistic director Thierry Frémaux. The blog claimed to have seen the full lineup, "briefly published on the official Cannes Film Festival

Les amants de "Low Life": A Talk with Nicolas Klotz & Elisabeth Perceval

  • MUBI

“I am Ophelia. She who the river could not hold.” These words, taken from Heinrich Müller’s play Hamletmachine, are spoken by a girl playing an actress at the start of the beautiful new film Low Life, screening Sunday and Wednesday as part of Lincoln Center’s series Rendez-Vous with French Cinema. She is one of a group of young people who gather together in the streets and in their rooms at night, quoting and making plays, films, novels, and songs in an effort to choose their own identities, and to resist identities imposed on them by the State. The binaries of native/immigrant, legal/illegal, and natural/unnatural come into relief in particular through the love story of Carmen (Camille Rutherford), born in Lyon, and Hussain (Arash Naiman), an Afghan poet threatened with deportation. When together they’re quiet

Sundance Selects Acquires ‘Beyond the Hills,’ from ‘4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days’ Helmer Cristian Mungiu; IFC Gets ‘Tied’

  • The Film Stage
The most exciting news of the weekend pertains to something that, with any luck, will be in about 300 theaters at once. Here, we’re talking about the next film from Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days) — now titled Beyond the Hills — which Deadline tells us has found an American home with IFC’s sister company Sundance Selects.

Our first wind of the project was caught just under three weeks ago, when it was merely known as the tale of “a young woman’s descent into madness, her subsequent exorcism and the police investigation it sparks.” The lovely news of an acquisition, however, brings a lengthy plot synopsis, one which is packed into Sundance Selects’ press release. You can read that below:

“Alina has just been reunited with Voichita in an isolated convent in Romania after spending several years in Germany. The two young women have supported and loved each other

Daily Briefing. Juliette Binoche is Bruno Dumont's "Camille Claudel"

  • MUBI
"The tragic destiny of the sculptor Camille Claudel will be the focus of Bruno Dumont's seventh feature, which will start shooting next February in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence," reports Fabien Lemercier at Cineuropa, where he notes that "the project has just been selected by Arte France Cinéma which will support it through co-production and pre-acquisitions. For the first time in his career, the director of Outside Satan (unveiled on the Croisette in May) and two-time winner of the Grand Prize at Cannes (in 1999 with Humanity and in 2006 for Flanders) has cast a star: Juliette Binoche (set to be seen next year in Malgorzata Szumowska's Elles, David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, Sylvie Testud's The Life of Another and Marion Lainé's A Monkey on My Shoulder)."

Lemercier reminds us that when Isabelle Adjani played Claudel for Bruno Nuytten in 1988, she scored a Silver Bear in Berlin, a César and an Oscar nomination. And

Production Underway for Season 3 of 'Mafiosa'

Canal Plus, a French premium cable network, announced that production is underway for the third season of Mafiosa. Moreover, the shooting of the show will end in June 2, 2010.

The network announced that French viewers should expect to see, for the first time, a TV series that is shot in Corsica. After all, the show is about the world of mafia in this region of France.

Jean-Michel Paoli (Thierry Neuvic) woke up from a coma while everybody thought that he was missing. With that said, how will he and his sister Sandra (Hélène Fillières), with whom he jointly leads a mafia clan, coexist together? Besides, a group of young hoodlums will try to take advantage of the chasm between the two Paolis even if it means provoking them.

Finally, the third season of this show will star: Hélène Fillières, Thierry Neuvic, Éric Fraticelli, Frédéric Graziani, Phareelle Onoyan, Joey Starr, Jean-Pierre Kalfon,
