The Forgotten: Claude Miller's "Deadly Circuit" (1983)

31 May 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Michel Serrault, like his co-star here, Isabelle Adjani, used to be in everything. As ubiquitous as Depardieu. La cage aux folles might be his best-known film. Despite his omnipresence, he seems surprising casting as a private eye known only as "the Eye," but then he does have inverted Vs for eyebrows, just like Hammett's description of Sam Spade.The Eye has a class photograph of a group of schoolgirls. He's talking to his ex-wife on the phone. She won't tell him which one is his daughter. He guesses wrong. He'll be allowed another guess in a year. There are about thirty kids to choose from.What a brilliant opening scene! We'll forgive the strutting eighties music and neo-noir Venetian blind shadows. This is a film besotted with movie-ness and wallowing in plot contrivance, but it's also perverse, haunted and romantic. The Eye is warned against letting his new case get too complicated. »

17 Brilliant Horror Films That Debuted at Cannes: Stream all of the Screams

17 May 2017 9:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Cannes Film Festival doesn’t get its due as a platform for horror. But as this year’s festival begins, two of the most anticipated titles — Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” and David Lynch’s new season of “Twin Peaks” — are artful interpretations of the genre. Several more buzzy entries are expected to be dark and dire, including Lynne Ramsey’s “You Were Never Really Here,” David Robert Mitchell’s “Under the Silver Lake,” and Jane Campion’s series “Top of the Lake: China Girl.”

Cannes’ love of the gothic is nothing new. The festival has long been a melting pot for bold visions, and this includes some of the world’s scariest films. From established risk-takers like Lars von Trier and Nicolas Winding Refn to once-green directors like Gaspar Noé and Sam Raimi, the strength of the talent has left some indelible impressions on the horror scene. »

French-Moroccan Actor Assaad Bouab Broadens His Canvas

16 January 2017 10:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Having playing a Muslim Azerbiijani boy in Asif Kapadia’s “Ali and Nino,” a Syrien camp commander in “Homeland” (season 5) “Homeland,” the handsome French-Moroccan actor Assaad Bouab might well be on track to follow the footsteps of Reda Kateb, another French actor of North African origins who appeared in dozens of French films and TV series and a few high-profile U.S. titles before accessing meatier roles at home.

Represented by Emmanuelle Ramade and Florence Charmasson at Adequat in Paris, Bouab has seen his career heat up in the last couple years. Since getting his first leading role in Mary Jimenez and Bénédicte Liénard’s politically-engaged “Le chant des hommes” and starring in the popular Canal Plus show “Braquo,” Bouab clinched a key role in the second season of “10 Pour Cent” (“Call My Agent”), the French comedy hit series centering on a Parisian talent agency. Bouab plays an arrogant, »

Exclusive: Comedy centres on woman who wakes up one morning with something extra.

Elle Driver is reporting brisk business on Audrey Dana’s comedy If I Were A Boy following a packed screening at the Unifrance Rendez-vous With French Cinema in Paris, which runs from January 12-16.

Popular French actress Dana directs and stars as the unlucky-in-love heroine Jeanne – a recently-divorced single mother who has sworn off men.

One morning she wakes up with a penis – a development that mystifies her gynaecologist and results in some quirky situations as Jeanne navigates her way – emotionally and physically – through the unprecedented development.

Other cast members include Serial (Bad) Weddings star Christian Clavier; Eric Elmosnino, whose recent credits include the hit La Famille Bélier; and Alice Belaïdi (A Little Job, The Climb).

It is Dana’s second feature in the director’s chair after her 2014 ensemble work French Women (Sous Les Jupes des Filles) co-starring Isabelle Adjani, Laetitia Casta, [link »

Sociopsychological Drama with Central Gay Character, French Film Icon Top Nsfc Choices

7 January 2017 9:04 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

2016 movies Things to Come (pictured) and Elle have earned French cinema icon Isabelle Huppert her – surprisingly – first National Society of Film Critics Best Actress Award. 2016 Movies: Isabelle Huppert & 'Moonlight' among National Society of Film Critics' top picks Earlier today (Jan. 7), the National Society of Film Critics announced their top 2016 movies and performances. Somewhat surprisingly, this year's Nsfc list – which generally contains more offbeat entries than those of other U.S.-based critics groups – is quite similar to their counterparts', most of which came out last December. No, that doesn't mean the National Society of Film Critics has opted for the crowd-pleasing route. Instead, this awards season U.S. critics have not infrequently gone for even less mainstream entries than usual. Examples, among either the Nsfc winners or runners-up, include Isabelle Huppert in Elle, Moonlight, Toni Erdmann, Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea, and Lily Gladstone in Certain Women.
