"We need to start something new." We haven't seen Basinger that much recently. Zentropa has debuted an early trailer for Anders Morgenthaler's drama/suspense film I Am Here, starring Oscar winner Kim Basinger along with Peter Stormare (22 Jump Street, Bad Milo, Pain & Gain), Jordan Prentice (In Bruges, Mirror Mirror) and Sebastian Schipper (Run Lola Run, Three). The film is about a woman (Basinger) who really wants to have a baby, but can't do so, and sets off on a quest to do something about it only ending up in what seems to be a very messed up situation. While it seems like your standard drama, there's some very interesting quirks to it, like the tiny glowing girl that talks in her ear. Yea I know – what?! Watch the new international trailer for Anders Morgenthaler's I Am Here, found via The Movie Box: Anders Morgenthaler's drama world premiered »

Hovering around the twenty-one to twenty-four feature film mark with at least a quarter of those films belonging to first time filmmakers, the Quinzaine des Realisateurs (a.k.a Directors’ Fortnight) has in the past couple of years, counted on a healthy supply of French, Spanish and Belgium produced film items, and has been geared towards the offbeat genre items as with last year’s edition curated by Edouard Waintrop and co. To be unveiled on the 22nd, as we attempted with our Critics’ Week predix, Blake Williams, Nicholas Bell and I (Eric Lavallee) are thinking out loud and hedging our bets on what the section might look like or what the programmers might be looking at for 2014. Here is our predictions overview:

While his 2006 film, Princess, starring Thure Lindhardt, received a great deal of attention after premiering in the Director’s Fortnight sidebar at Cannes, Anders Morgenthaler’s 2007 sophomore feature, Echo (with Kim Bodnia) never received theatrical release outside of Denmark. After working in television since then, he’s completed his third film feature, dealing with infant prostitution in Eastern Europe. And starring Kim Basinger. Come now, that sounds absolutely delectable. While the original title, Petit was preferable to the generic sounding I’m Here, this sounds like an excellent offbeat showcase for the beautiful Basinger, and we see Peter Stormare is once again part of Morgenthaler’s cast. This could go either way, but it’s definitely a project high on our radar.
