, and the films in post-production Belles familles – read the article – and Bamberski – read the article). For his first foray behind the camera, the newly turned filmmaker has decided to adapt the comic book of the same name by Camille Jourdy and has assembled a cast including Kyan Khojandi (a comedian who started out in television and was popular on the big screen in Lou!

), Anémone and Philippe Rebbot. The story revolves around Vincent Machot, who lives in a village in the country. His life, which he spends between his hairdressing salon, his over-possessive mother and his cousin’s sexual obsessions, is starting to seem increasingly bleak to him… But one Sunday, he experiences a strange sense of déjà vu when he makes eye contact with the grocer. Where has he met her before? He feels compelled to start following this woman around the village… Produced by Michaël Gentile for The Film and Charles Gillibert for CG Cinéma, Rosalie Blum is co-produced by France 2 Cinéma and has also been pre-purchased by Canal+. Distribution in France will be handled by SND.

Since January, The Film has also been editing Lolo by Julie Delpy (whose previous film, Le Skylab [+see also:

). Written by the director together with Eugénie Grandval, the story kicks off as Violette meets Jean-René on holiday in Biarritz. The situation is almost picture-postcard perfect. But that is without taking into account the presence of Lolo, Violette’s darling, overprotected son, who is a genuine sociopath and is prepared to do anything in order to destroy the budding couple and hold on to his position as Violette’s favourite… Co-produced by France 2 Cinéma, Mars Films (which will handle the release in French theatres on 28 October) and Tempête sous un crâne, Lolo has also been pre-purchased by Canal+, Ciné+ and D8. International sales are managed by Wild Bunch.
