67th Cannes Film Festival: Xavier Dolan, Egoyan & Rohrwacher Among Main Comp Surprises!

17 April 2014 5:35 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

How sweat it is for Canadian film. There’ll be a maple syruppy touch to the Cannes Film Festival presence to the 67th Cannes Film Festival with a trio of Canuck films among today’s 17 Main Competition (we expect the number to possibly increase by at least one before the fest breaks). We have David Cronenberg, Atom Egoyan and while there is no Denys Arcand this year, the baton has been passed over to Xavier Dolan, who we believe becomes the youngest ever filmmaker to be included in the section. The influx of Canadian helmers means a depletion of U.S fare, with only the opener, Tommy Lee Jones and Bennett Miller breaking into the group.

Of the line-up, the key surprises Damian Szifron’s Wild Tales (which sees Pedro Almodovar as one of the producers) and is baiscally a series of comic sketches and Alice Rohrwacher with only her »

2014 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Main Competition, Un Certain Regard & Special Screenings

16 April 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With only hours ago before the official selection for the Main Competition is announced, we’ve narrowed our final predictions to the following titles that we’re crystal-balling as the films that will be included on Thierry Fremaux’s highly anticipated list. Despite an obvious drought of Asian auteurs (we’re thinking the rumored frontrunner Takashi Miike won’t be included in tomorrow’s list) who’s to say there won’t be some definite surprises, like Jia Zhang-ke’s A Touch of Sin last year.

Several hopefuls appear not to be ready in time, including Malick, Hsou-hsien, Cristi Puiu, and Innarritu, to name a few. But there does appear to be a high quantity of exciting titles from some of cinema’s leading auteurs. We’re still a bit tentative about whether Xavier Dolan’s latest, Mommy, will get a main competition slot—instead, we’re predicting another surprise, »

Tennis Anyone? Courtside Seats to Infidelity in Denys Arcand’s Le règne de la beauté (Trailer)

24 March 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

By comparison, Quebecois helmer Denys Arcand’s output might be one film for every five that Xavier Dolan manages to produce, but nonetheless, his films are much appreciated by an adoring public that reaches well beyond Quebec’s borders. Formerly going by the production title of “Deux Nuits,” Le règne de la beauté (translates into The Reign of Beauty) has all the markings of of Arcandian themes: gender relations and fragility of institutions (such as relationships) with a usual pinch of black humor (which doesn’t seem apparent in the trailer below). Pegged as a possible selection for Main Comp at the Cannes Film Festival, this ensemble includes French actress Mélanie Thierry (The Princess of Montpensier) and cross continental thesp Marie-Josée Croze (winner for the Best Actress award in 2003 for Arcand’s The Barbarian Invasions). This is one for the grown-ups.
