Two titles by young French filmmakers set to be showcased in the parallel selections of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival (14-25 May) feature prominently on the slate of the international sales division of Paris-based outfit Le Pacte, managed by Jean Labadie, which fully intends to reap a healthy profit from them at the Marché du Film.

by Aude Léa Rapin will be world-premiered as a special screening in the 58th Critics’ Week. Starring Adèle Haenel, Jonathan Couzinié (who wrote the screenplay with the director), Antonia Buresi, Hasija Borić and Vesna Stilinović, this feature debut begins in a street in Paris, where a stranger thinks he has recognised in Joachim a soldier who died in Bosnia on 21 August 1983. The thing is, this is the very day that Joachim was born: 21 August 1983. Thrown by the idea that he might be the reincarnation of this man, he decides to go to Sarajevo with his friends Alice and Virginie. In this country, haunted by shadows of the war, they put their hearts and souls into discovering Joachim's past life. Produced by Les Films du Worso, Heroes Don't Die was co-produced by Radar Films, Belgium’s Scope Pictures and Bosnia’s SSCA/pro.ba.

by Benoît Forgeart, which will be the closing film of the 51st Directors’ Fortnight, and which is toplined by William Lebghil and Doria Tillier. Written by the director, the story revolves around a rapper, Jerem, who decides to hunker down at his grandma's place to compose his first album. There, he meets So, a mysterious researcher working for a startup called Digital Cool. 
She will persuade Jerem to try out Yves, a new kind of smart refrigerator gifted with AI. Little by little, Yves creates a bond of friendship with Jerem and, by becoming his ghost writer, will turn him into a star. But with Yves, life was supposed to be easier… Production duties were entrusted to Ecce Films.

At the Marché du Film, the Le Pacte sales team, headed up by Camille Neel, will also be negotiating deals for three tantalising titles in post-production, which will be sold based on their promo-reels: the French-Belgian co-production Mama Weed by Jean-Paul Salomé (toplined by Isabelle Huppert – see the article), Madre [+leggi anche:
