Paris — Benoit Jacquot’s “Three Hearts,” Abderrahmane Sissako’s “Timbuktu” and Eric Lartigau’s “La Famille Belier” are part of the eclectic mix of movies set to compete at the Lumiere awards, the French equivalent to the Golden Globes.
A love triangle drama, “Three Hearts,” which opened in Venice, stars Charlotte Gainsbourg and Chiara Mastroianni as two sisters who fall in love with the same man. Pic marks Jacquot’s follow-up to “Farewell, My Queen.” His next movie, “Diary of a Chambermaid,” is expected to open in Berlin.
A politically engaged and aesthetically pleasing movie, “Timbuktu” chronicles the lives of several Malians facing Jihadist occupation in their region. Mauritania’s first foreign-language Oscar candidate, “Timbuktu” has been shortlisted. Sissako was also nominated in the director category.
Set in the French provinces, “La Famille Belier,” the only truly popular movie competing for best film, is a dramedy centering on a teenager »

The Lumière Awards, France’s version of the Golden Globes, has announced the nominations for its 20th anniversary edition. There is no clear front-runner this year.
Bertrand Bonello’s Yves Saint Laurent biopic Saint Laurent, Benoît Jacquot’s 3 Hearts, starring Gainsbourg and Chiara Mastroianni as sisters who unwittingly fall for the same man, and Eric Lartigau’s Christmas hit La Famille Bélier, about an aspiring singer growing up in deaf family, lead the field with four nominations each including best film.
Céline Sciamma’s gritty urban drama Girlhood (Bande de Fille) and Lucas Belvaux’s chalk-and-cheese romance Not My Type(Pas Mon Genre) and, which were also nominated in the best film category, followed behind with three nominations.
Get ready for some inventive strangeness from Belgian auteur Jaco Van Dormael, who won the Camera d’Or back in 1991 for his inspired debut, Toto, the Hero. But he’s most famous for his lavish 2009 English language production, Mr. Nobody, a sort of philosophical sci-fi extravaganza that starred Jared Leto. The film cost upwards of 33 million euros and was greeted with an incredibly cool reception, not even available for Us audiences until 2013 when Leto’s Oscar campaign for The Dallas Buyers Club was in full force. Now, Van Dormael has scaled it back a bit (he did have a demure 2011 title, Kiss & Cry, which has yet to see any kind of release here) with his latest, Le tout Nouveau Testament (The Brand New Testament), which professes to tell the story of God and his exacerbated relationship »
