), Philippe Girard and Anthony Paliotti.

Written by Yves Thomas and Patricia Mazuy (the pair were nominated for the 2001 César for Best Screenplay for Saint-Cyr), the screenplay opens with a piece of news: Paul Sanchez, a criminal who disappeared 15 years ago, is back! At the Les Arcs police station, nobody can quite believe it, except perhaps female police officer Marion…

Produced by Patrick Sobelman for Ex Nihilo, Paul Sanchez est revenu! is being co-produced by Cinéfeel, Belgian company Les Films du Fleuve, and by SBS, which will handle the film’s distribution in France along with international sales. Pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature has also received support in the form of an advance on receipts from the CNC and Manon Sofica. Filming will take place until 6 April in the Var.
