A middle class husband and wife move to a cave in a patiently paced lo-fi study of sadness
Heading to the woods to deal with one’s demons is a common form of therapy in cinema. Emile Hirsch said goodbye to privilege in Into the Wild, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe retreated to a remote cabin after the death of their son in Antichrist and last year’s Toronto film festival had a grieving Reese Witherspoon traipsing through rough terrain in Wild. A year on, the self-explanatory Couple in a Hole takes that trope to a fascinating new place.

This is a capsule review. A full review will be posted closer to release.
Boiling down a poetic filmmaker’s latest work to just the plot is a reductive exercise (Tree of Life: “Everything happens”), but when the grand finale to a two-hour journey is a self-absorbed bore working up the courage to give a hug, that poetry better be damn amazing. Though Every Thing Will Be Fine has much of the lyricism expected from German director Wim Wenders, inert plotting and performances shroud much of that beauty in a mopey fog.
James Franco plays Tomas, a man forced to reckon with the aftermath of accidentally killing a child in a traffic collision. Though not at fault, the incident weighs heavily on Tomas over the course of a decade. Devoid of any defining characteristics outside of being a writer, Tomas provides a flat emotional center for the story, even before »

What's your name?
It sucks to miss a train. But for tax accountant Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde), one missed train back to Paris leads him to Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and the pair quickly connect. The next morning, Marc and Sylvie agree to meet in Paris and they part without ever saying their names--très romantique! Of course, events transpire such that Marc misses their appointment and Sylvie goes off to the wintry wilds of Minneapolis with a boyfriend she isn't that keen on. When Marc takes the train back to where he met Sylvie, he comes across Sophie (Chiara Mastroianni) who is freaking out over a little tax problem with the antique shop she runs with her sister. Marc, no stranger to quick connections, falls in with Sophie and the two get engaged. Surprise, no surprise, Sylvie is Sophie's sister and an emotional fuse is lit until Sylvie's arrival finally blows everything to pieces. »

It's a fall festival circus as Venice continues and Telluride kicks off tomorrow, and buyers are hitting the market ahead of world premieres, as well as catching up on films that didn't find homes in the spring. IFC Films has scooped Wim Wenders' "Every Thing Will Be Fine," the German director's English-language 2015 Berlinale premiere starring James Franco and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Following a North American premiere in Toronto's Masters section, the film will be released on December 4, 2015, though mixed reviews don't portend much awards cache.

A French period drama, “Marguerite” stars Catherine Frot (“Haute Cuisine,” “Chaos,” “Un air de famille,” “The Page Turner”) as Marguerite Dumont, a character loosely inspired by 1920s socialite Florence Foster Jenkins, a wannabe opera singer who believed she had a beautiful soprano voice. The world begged to differ from that opinion.
“Marguerite” world premieres at Venice, having struck major territory pre-sales across the world. Cohen Media Group plans a major market theatrical release in the spring.

Two different sets of cultures collide in the upcoming "East Side Sushi," which tells the kind of story which could only happen in America.

Esteemed German filmmaker Wim Wenders is bringing his latest drama, Every Thing Will Be Fine to Toronto International Film Festival next month, and to stoke excitement ahead of its debut, the first trailer for the film has appeared online via Metropole Films.
Placing The Interview‘s James Franco in the lead role as Tomas, Wenders’ new project charts one man’s spiralling descent into a personal crisis after his life is unceremoniously upended by a car crash. Though the event itself was out of his control, it is Tomas who bears the brunt of the crash’s ramifications as his relationship and work life begin to deteriorate in the aftermath. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Peter Stormare and True Detective‘s Rachel McAdams all star in the motion picture.
Truth be told, this first trailer doesn’t leave much to the imagination, showcasing a series of scenes that may be considered spoiler sensitive. »

Haugesund, Norway– Scandinavia’s biggest sales company TrustNordisk has come on board to represent Erik Skjoldbjærgs’ anticipated chilly drama “Pyromaniac” (“Pyromanen”) in international markets.
Penned by critically-acclaimed screenwriter Bjørn Olaf Johannessen, who wrote Wim Wenders’ “Every Thing Will Be Fine,” “Pyromaniac” is based on a true story depicted in Gaute Heivoll’s best-selling novel “Before I Burn.”
Unfolding in Finsland, a rural town of Southern Norway in the summer 1978, the film tells the gripping story of a troubled 19-year old man who was working as a fireman and became overwhelmed with an urge to destroy. The teenager started setting properties on fire over the course of one month, causing tremendous damage before getting arrested.
Johannessen said the film, which just started shooting, “is told from the arsonist’s perspective and isn’t a psychological or moralist drama.” “We’re seeing this young man who is both dark and vulnerable fall »

"Is there nothing that can get to you?" A trailer has debuted online for Wim Wenders' very heartbreaking, somber, moving film Every Thing Will Be Fine. The film stars James Franco, following him across 12 years as he tries to cope with the weight of a fatal accident one snowy night on a quiet road. This trailer gives away pretty much everything, so don't expect to be surprised, just expect to learn where the story is going - and that's the whole point. It's about actually feeling the emotions over years, not just the shock of what happened. I saw this at Berlinale (read my review) and liked it, despite being so somber. Also starring Rachel McAdams, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marie-Josée Croze and Peter Stormare. Give it a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ a poster) for Wim Wenders' Every Thing Will Be Fine, via YouTube: While driving aimlessly after a quarrel with his girlfriend, »
