Locarno: ‘Interchange,’ ‘The Last Family,’ ‘Glory’ Close Sales (Exclusive)

10 August 2016 3:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Interchange,” “The Last Family” and “Glory” led early sales announcements at an ever more hectic Locarno Festival where “Moka” and “Paula” drew positive critical plaudits –  boding well for break-out sales as top Locarno titles segue from the Swiss Alps to Toronto.

Harvey Keitel, Bill Pullman and Roger Corman collected career awards, lending an U.S. edge to an event which largely focuses on European arthouse and world cinema. The most significant industry presence was, however, that of Participant CEO David Linde who talked about his career as an independent producer and emphasised his belief – and that of Participant founder Jeff Skoll – in further growth in international markets as an estimated 5 billion people, largely in Asia and Africa, will come online for the first time in the next 5 years.

Attendance at Locarno’s Industry Days, which ran Aug. 6-8, came in at around 1,100, on a par with 2015, after sustained rapid growth »

Lavaine Moves Into Social Comedy With ‘Back to Mom’s’

14 January 2016 12:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Popular French comedy director Eric Lavaine (“Barbecue”) explores social comedy in his most recent film “Retour chez ma Mère” (“Back to Mom’s”) which is to be released by Pathé in early 2016. The film tells the story of a successful architect in her early forties (Alexandra Lamy) who has recently lost her father, her business and divorced her husband, losing custody of her son. Penniless, she returns to live with her mother (Josiane Balasko), but feels ashamed about her sudden change in fortunes. Lushly lensed in Aix-en-Provence, Lavaine adopts a highly personal approach for the pic, inspired in part by his own life experiences, but focusing primarily on the female leads.
