Le Discours di Laurent Tirard

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Nothing seems to be able to slow the rise of French international sales agent Charades, which even took the liberty of launching an innovative alliance with US distributor NEON in the midst of the health crisis (see the news), and which is putting the finishing touches to its slate of 23 titles for the Cannes Film Festival’s Marché du Film Online (22-26 June).

In particular, Yohann Comte, Carole Baraton, Pierre Mazars and Constantin Briest’s team will be pinning its hopes on two French films that have been granted Cannes labels. Bearing the Cannes 73 Official Selection stamp of approval, The Speech by Laurent Tirard, a filmmaker who has always successfully combined artistic quality with mainstream pulling power, will enjoy an online market world premiere. The feature, starring Benjamin Lavernhe and Sara Giraudeau, will be distributed in France by Le Pacte.

Meanwhile, a movie blessed with the Critics’ Week label, Skies of Lebanon, the feature debut by Chloé Mazlo (see the article), which is a Moby Dick Films production and has a cast including Italy’s Alba Rohrwacher and Lebanese-Quebecois thesp Wajdi Mouawad, will be pre-sold based on a promo-reel. Its French distribution will be handled by Ad Vitam.

A further seven market world premieres are on the menu, for The Rose Maker by France’s Pierre Pinaud, the French-Belgian thriller Hunted [+leggi anche:

A recent addition to the line-up is the Danish thriller Shorta by Anders Ølholm and Frederik Louis Hviid (see the news), which is in post-production and will be sold based on a new promo-reel.

The batch of titles in post-production are particularly tantalising, as Charades will be pre-selling (based on promo-reels) Petrov’s Flu [+leggi anche:
