Cannes: ’100 Meters’ Sells To Germany, Asia, Poland (Exclusive)

15 May 2016 11:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Barcelona– Co-produced by Barcelona’s Filmax International and Lisbon’s Mgn Filmes, “100 Meters” has been sold to Germany, Yugoslavia, and Hong-Kong, among other territories.

Directed and penned by first-timer Marcel Barrena, “Meters” is an inspiring dramedy, channeling echoes of “The Intouchables,” which explores with humor people’s capacity to overcome the seemingly impossible.

In a flurry of early Cannes Film Market deals, “100 Meters” closed with German-Swiss distrib Ascot Elite for German-speaking Europe, with Zagreb’s Blitz Film & Video Distribution Blitz for former-Yugoslavia, Taipei’s Caichang for Taiwan, Edko  for Hong Kong, Seoul’s Korea Screen for South Korea and Warsaw’s Monolith for Poland.

“Meters” is based on Bilbao-born Ramon Arroyo true story. An athlete diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 16 years ago, he was told that he wouldn’t be able to walk 100 meters in matter of days. Having decided to prove doctors wrong, he finally managed to  complete a “super-hero »

First Trailer For Eugéne Green’s ‘Le fils de Joseph’ With Mathieu Amalric, Fabrizio Rongione & More

28 March 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It was only a few days ago when we shared the first images from Le Fils de Joseph, the latest drama Eugène Green, his follow-up to La Sapienza, which was sadly overlooked last year — at least in the United States. Led by Mathieu AmalricFabrizio Rongione (La Sapienza; Two Days, One Night), Natacha Régnier, Victor Ezenfis, and Maria de Medeiros, we now have the first trailer for the drama. While it is without any subtitles yet, that isn’t a problem when it comes to witnessing more vibrant cinematography from the director.

While at Berlin, Guy Lodge quite liked the film, writing for Variety, “No one behaves quite like a human being in Eugene Green’s “Le Fils de Joseph,” yet a soulful sense of humanity emerges from their heightened declamations anyway. Though it’s still steeped in its maker’s very particular formalities of language and performance, this honey-drizzled, »

First Looks at New Films from Studio Ghibli, Eugéne Green, and More

22 March 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There are few better ways to predict the Cannes lineup than looking up whatever Wild Bunch are soon putting out. The French production outfit earns as much attention as anyone around mid-May, and there are at least two in-development titles that have caught our attention — though you wouldn’t necessarily expect that they have the same people working behind the scenes.

They are The Red Turtle, a co-production with Studio Ghibli directed by Michaël Dudok de Wit, and Blood Father, a thriller directed by Jean-François Richet that stars Mel Gibson, William H. Macy, Diego Luna, Michael Parks, and Erin Moriarty (The Kings of Summer, Jessica Jones), among others. Then there’s Le Fils de Joseph, from Eugène Green — whose La Sapienza was one of my ten favorite movies from last year — and starring Mathieu AmalricFabrizio Rongione (La Sapienza; Two Days, One Night), Natacha Régnier, Victor Ezenfis, and Maria de Medeiros »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Le Fils de Joseph’

15 February 2016 2:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No one behaves quite like a human being in Eugene Green’s “Le Fils de Joseph,” yet a soulful sense of humanity emerges from their heightened declamations anyway. Though it’s still steeped in its maker’s very particular formalities of language and performance, this honey-drizzled, farcically funny fable of an unhappy teenager seeking a father — first the one he has, then the one he deserves — could prove to be Green’s most commercially accessible work, even among arthouse auds not necessarily attuned to its millefeuille layering of theological symbolism. (Its mirthful contemporary remix of the Nativity story, however, surely can’t escape anyone’s notice.) Green makes films for anyone willing to enter his peculiar universe of expressive purity and (mostly) suspended cynicism, to which “Joseph” reps one of his most beguiling invitations.

This is Green’s first team-up with producers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, whose increasingly catholic arthouse »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #99. Eugène Green’s Le fils de Joseph

5 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Director: Eugène Green

Writer: Eugène Green

American born French director Eugène Green usually premieres his films at Locarno, though despite critical acclaim many fail to get considerable attention in the Us (of note, his last film 2014’s La Sapienza, also starring Belgian Fabrizio Rongione, was distributed by Kino Lorber). His latest film, Le fils de Joseph (Joseph’s Son), is described by the director as having allusions to the Bible whilst meanwhile being a topical narrative wrapped up in elements of film noir. And it boasts an incredibly prolific cast. The story revolves around a young man (Ezenfis) who lives with his mother (Régnier). Having never known his father, he heads off to look for him. He finds a cynical and Machiavellian man (Amalric) who works as a publisher in Paris. After he attempts to kill him, he will then find filial love thanks to his uncle (Rongione).

Cast: Mathieu Amalric, »
