Claude Sautet: The Things of Life

15 October 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Lumière Festival’s Claude Sautet retrospective is being presented under the banner “The Age of Sautet (1960-95),” and that just about says it all. In the years he was active, few French directors better channeled the spirit of their times — not in grand, sweeping gestures, but rather miniature brushstrokes: the way a man and a woman might sit in a boulevard cafe, and the things both spoken and unspoken that might pass between them there; the moments of ease and anxiety around a family dinner table; the disappointments of parents in their children, and vice-versa. These are films that are at once indelibly French but also unassailably human. When I programmed a Sautet retrospective for the Film Society of Lincoln Center in 2012, I chose an even simpler title, taken directly from one of his own films: “The Things of Life.”

The Dreamers: Valérie Donzelli Completes Casting for “Marguerite et Julien” (aka Abandoned Truffaut Project)

30 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Cineuropa folks report that Donzelli has completed the casting on Marguerite et Julien, a project that François Truffaut flirted with but ultimately passed on. Completing the cast we find Aurélia Petit (The Science of Sleep), vet thesps Sami Frey and Geraldine Chaplin, reuniting with her fellow Declaration of War‘s Frédéric Pierrot and Bastien Bouillon who join the previously announced duo of Anaïs Demoustier (you can find her in Ozon’s latest, the recently acquired Cohen Media’s The New Girlfriend) and Jérémie Elkaïm (full-time collaborator with Donzelli who we also discovered in Declaration of War).
