Tomorrow marks the start of the 29th FIDMarseille, which will unspool until 16 July, presenting an opulent programme of 150 films hailing from 37 countries, 27 of which will enjoy their world premieres across its four competitive sections. In addition, this year, the Marseille International Film Festival’s godmother is none other than Isabelle Huppert, who will have a tribute dedicated to her through a clutch of 13 films and who will also lead a master class.

 (unveiled as a Special Screening at Cannes in 2016), the Catalan filmmaker has once again decided to take on the figure of King Louis XIV, this time entrusting the role to a non-professional actor and dramatically scaling back the setting of the palace to the bare minimum. The movie delivers a reflection of the aristocracy, billed as lying somewhere between the sublime and the ludicrous, between the derisory and derision, and between Buñuel and Dalí. The feature, which flirts with recording performance art, was produced by Andergraun Films.
