Cannes ends in upset as Dheepan wins coveted Palme d'Or

25 May 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The 68th Cannes Film Festival was brought to a surprising close Sunday with Jacques Audiard's Sri Lankan refugee drama taking the festival's coveted top honor, the Palme d'Or.

The choice of Dheepan, as selected by a jury led by Joel and Ethan Coen, left some critics scratching their heads. While the dapper French filmmaker has drawn widespread acclaim for films such as A Prophet and Rust and Bone, some critics were disappointed by the thriller climax of Audiard's film. Dheepan is about a trio of Sri Lankans who pretend to be a family in order to flee their war-torn country and are settled in a violent housing project outside Paris.

"This isn't a jury of film critics," Joel Coen told reporters after the awards ceremony, alongside fellow jurors likeGuillermo del Toro and Jake Gyllenhaal. "This is a jury of artists who are looking at the work."

Daily | Cannes 2015 | Stéphane Brizé’s The Measure Of A Man

19 May 2015 3:28 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"In Stéphane Brizé's The Measure of a Man, Vincent Lindon "plays Thierry, an unemployed husband and father struggling to find a new career after being laid off from his longtime factory job," writes Mike D'Angelo, dispatching to the Dissolve. And he's not the only one to note that La loi du marché, literally, The Law of the Market, could well serve as a companion piece to Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne's Two Days, One Night. "Brizé (Mademoiselle Chambon) spends the first half of the film detailing just how screwed Thierry is, with each scene constituting a protracted argument that goes in maddening circles. Then, abruptly, in a single nondescript cut, Thierry has a job, working as a security guard for a huge department store." We've got more reviews and the trailer. » - David Hudson »

Paco (Mathieu Kassovitz) with Tsali (David Gastou) and Okyesa (Sofiane Neveu): "For me, in the whole first part of the film, the father really is a hero for his sons."

Wild Life (Vie Sauvage) director Cédric Kahn discusses his role in Axelle Ropert's Miss And The Doctors (Tirez La Langue, Mademoiselle), working with a monkey and Two Days, One Night directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne as co-producers. Wild Life producer Kristina Larsen joins in on our Scandinavian discussion with my references to Nora, from Ibsen's A Doll's House, and Pippi Longstocking. I met up with Kristina and Cédric again at Anne-Dominique Toussaint's Galerie Cinema reception before heading downtown for the First Time Fest closing party honouring Harvey Weinstein.

The night after the Us premiere of Benoît Jacquot's 3 Hearts (3 Coeurs) starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni and Benoît Poelvoorde, I met up with Wild Life (Vie Sauvage) director Cédric Kahn for a conversation on his film, starring Mathieu Kassovitz and Céline Sallette. The suspense of Robert Bresson's Pickpocket mixes with Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest and turns into a "paranoiac world". Working with Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, choices and his role in Axelle Ropert's Miss And The Doctors came up.

Oscars 2015: Variety Critics Pick Who Should Win

18 February 2015 10:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar night is nearly upon us. Variety reviewers Scott Foundas, Justin Chang, Peter Debruge and Guy Lodge don’t get ballots, but if they did, here’s how they would vote in the top eight categories.

Scott Foundas

Best Picture: “American Sniper.” It’s funny that my two favorite films in this category, “Sniper” and “Selma,” are the two that have been repeatedly pitted against each other by awards-season pundits scrapping for a fight. The wildly disproportionate box office grosses of the two movies has added a certain David-vs.-Goliath aspect to the narrative, too — at least until you consider that “Selma,” with close to $50 million domestically, has far outgrossed both presumptive best pic frontrunners, “Boyhood” and “Birdman.” But all such comparisons only serve to diminish the artistry of two movies that cast unusually sober and sophisticated gazes on contentious periods of American history, one still unfolding daily in the headlines, »

2015 BAFTA Awards winners as they are announced

8 February 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 2015 Ee BAFTA Awards were handed out in London Sunday night and while the broadcast aired hours later in the United States, it didn't stop us from chronicling the twists and turns of a show often seen as a bellwether for the Academy Awards. It took home only three BAFTAs, but "Boyhood" was the biggest winner of the night as it won Best Film and Richard Linklater earned Director honors. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" took home five statues including Original Screenplay for Wes Anderson, Production Design, Costumes, Original Music and Make Up & Hair. "Whiplash" earned three BAFTAs including J.K. Simmons for Supporting Actor, Editing and a somewhat surprising win in Sound. Expected Oscar winners Julianne Moore took Leading Actress and Patricia Arquette took Supporting Actress.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Diary of a Chambermaid’

7 February 2015 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A degree of hubris is required for any current Continental auteur to re-adapt Octave Mirbeau’s 1900 succes de scandale “Diary of a Chambermaid,” given its enduring association with the names Jean Renoir and Luis Bunuel. In this slender, slippery update, however, Benoit Jacquot has at least balanced his with a measure of kinky japery: While it’s the least vivid of the three versions, it arguably comes closest to matching the sauciness of the source. Starring an ideally cast Lea Seydoux as the secretive servant of the title, seeking self-advancement at the expense of her snooty employers, the film milks some brisk comedy from its upstairs-downstairs peekaboo, but is too breezy to convince in its depiction of obsessive erotic fixation — making for a “Diary” that oddly feels less exposing as it goes along.

Seydoux’s name and other attractive trappings guarantee a degree of international distributor interest in a project »

Ndm Boards Berlin Panorama Special Opener ‘600 Miles’ (Exclusive)

26 January 2015 3:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Taking one of the most anticipated Berlin Fest first features off the table, Ndm, the Mexico and Paris-based sales house, has secured world sales rights to Tim Roth starrer “600 Miles,” which co-opens Berlin Panorama Special showcase next week.

A cross-border drama-thriller-come-road movie, “600 Miles” marks the directorial debut of producer-turned director Gabriel Ripstein (“”No One Writes to the Colonel”); Michel Franco, best known as the director of “After Lucia” which won Cannes’ Un Certain Regard in 2012, produces for his go-ahead Mexico City-based shingle Lucia Films.

The “600 Miles” deal comes as Ndm continues to roll out Bruno Dumont’s “Li’l Quinquin,” now licensed to the U.K. (New Wave), Italy (Movies Inspired), Spain (Aventura Audiovisual) and Turkey, where the International Festival of Instanbul has also acquired Lisandro Alonso’s “Jauja,” with Viggo Mortensen. ‘600 Miles’ adds to a second high-profile Ndm title in Panorama: Ole Giaever’s “Out of Nature,” a hit »

The Dardenne Brothers on Two Days, One Night and How They Work Together

14 January 2015 9:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Two Days, One Night, the great Marion Cotillard plays a woman who has to go around her Belgian town trying to convince her co-workers to give up their bonuses in order to win her job at a solar-panel factory back. That may sound like a fairly dry premise for a film, but the results are stunningly suspenseful. That’s because Two Days, One Night is a film by Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, the two Belgian brothers whose works tread the fine line between socially conscious drama, bleak realism, and incredible tension. Over the past several decades, the Dardennes have built up one of the most acclaimed and unique bodies of work in all of cinema. They’ve been rewarded with two Palmes d’Or at Cannes in the process, for 1999’s Rosetta and 2005’s The Child. (And, given the rapturous reception that each new film from them seems to »
