Staged by Les Films du Bélier, La bête will boast a cast including Léa Seydoux and Gaspard Ulliel, and will tell a story set in the near future, when emotions have become a threat. Gabrielle finally resolves to purify her DNA in a machine that plunges her into her past lives and rids her of any strong feelings. She then meets Louis and feels a powerful connection, almost as if she has always known him. This melodrama criss-crossed by genre elements unfolds in three different years: 1910, 2014 and 2044.

Arte France Cinéma has also selected Voyages en Italie, the fifth feature by Sophie Letourneur, following Chicks – Life at the Ranch [+leggi anche:

(in the Big Screen Competition at Rotterdam last year and winner of the 2020 Jean-Vigo Prize). Produced by Ecce Films, and starring the director herself alongside Philippe Katerine, this new project will revolve around Sophie, who explains how she has decided to head off with Jean-Philippe, just the two of them, in order to save their relationship, which has been engulfed by family life. But where should they go? After numerous hare-brained ideas, they decide to go to Sicily, despite Jean-Philippe’s sprain.

Arte France Cinéma will also be throwing its weight behind the feature debut by Emmanuelle Nicot: L’amour selon Dalva (staged by Tripode Productions together with Belgian outfit Hélicotronc). The story hinges on 12-year-old Dalva. One evening, the police burst into her house and arrest her father, whom she lives with. Utterly flabbergasted, Dalva does everything she can to defend the man, but it’s no use. Suddenly sent to a children’s home for teenagers, Dalva will befriend Samia, her roommate, and will gradually come to trust her teacher, Jayden. Thanks to them, she will understand why she was taken away from her beloved father... Which path must Dalva now tread to escape his influence, to free herself from her father, to inch towards clear-sightedness?
