Le Sens de L’humour gets advance on receipts from CNC

Five debut feature film projects were selected at the last 2011 session of the second advance on receipts committee of the National Film and Moving Image Centre (CNC).

Standing out among them is Marilyne Canto’s comedy drama Le Sens de L’humour (“The Sense of Humour”), which is co-scripted by the actress-director (recently acclaimed in The Snows of Kilimanjaro [+see also:

and soon to be seen in Sunday Dads) and Maud Ameline. Produced by Julie Salvador for Christmas in July, the film will star the director (whose awards include the César for Best Short Film in 2007) and is expected to start shooting in autumn 2012. This is the film’s pitch: As Christmas approaches, Elise can’t make up her mind whether to love or leave Paul, but life will decide for her.
