Oscar nominee Isabelle Huppert won best actress award at the 42nd edition of the French Oscars, the Césars in Paris last night (February 24), 21 years after she won the award previously for Claude Chabrol’s La Cérémonie. Paul Verhoeven’s film was named best picture. Elle was nominated in 11 categories.

Verhoeven paid tribute to Huppert, saying she had brought an “extra dimension to the role” which he had not expected when they started work. Huppert, looking radiant in an emerald green evening gown, suggested that she had got noticed in the film “because I am practically in every frame”.

The youthful Quebec film-maker Xavier Dolan was a surprise recipient of the best director and editing awards for It’s Only The End Of The World which »

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Oscar nominee Isabelle Huppert won best actress at the 42nd Cesar Awards, the country’s top film prize.

Out of 16th Cesar nominations, Huppert had only won once for her performance in Claude Chabrol’s “La Ceremonie.”

Huppert has been on a laureled path since “Elle” competed at Cannes: she notably won the Golden Globe award. Set in France and produced by Said Ben Said and Michel Merkt, “Elle” has been described as a powerful rape-revenge thriller laced with dark humor. The movie was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics at Cannes.

The biggest surprise of the night was Xavier Dolan winning best director and editing with “It’s Only The End of the World” which also earned Gaspard Ulliel the best actor prize. Dolan is currently shooting “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan” in Prague.

Movie Review – It’s Only the End of the World (2016)

23 February 2017 4:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s Only the End of the World, 2016.

Directed by Xavier Dolan.

Starring Gaspard Ulliel, Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard and Lea Seydoux.

Synopsis:

After 12 years away from his family, a terminally ill writer returns home to break the news.  But, as he struggles to re-connect with them, old wounds and frustrations rise to the surface, making it even harder for him to tell them the real reason for his visit.

Meet the family.  Fractured, dysfunctional and belonging to writer Louis (Gaspard Ulliel) who hasn’t seen them for 12 years.  During that time, older brother Antoine (Vincent Cassel) has married Catherine (Marion Cotillard) and had two  children.  Sister Suzanne (Lea Seydoux) is increasingly stoned and hippy-like, while mother (Nathalie Baye) has become increasingly garish in her choice of clothes and make-up.  Louis might have a tenuous attachment to all of them – he keeps suggesting a visit to the previous »

It’s Only the End of the World Review

21 February 2017 6:51 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

The prolific, impressively young Xavier Dolan’s preceding endeavour was his finest yet, the indelible, irresistible drama Mommy, a film that contained a lot of shrieking, and yet amidst the emotional, piercing shouting matches, you always felt you could hear every single word. His latest, the curiously self-pitying It’s Only the End of the World, also features screaming – and lots of it – and yet in this instance you feel as though you aren’t actually catching a word, it’s just one big muffled mess.

In what seems to be a self-referential piece, Dolan casts Gaspard Ulliel as Louis, a terminally ill playwright returning back home for the first time in over a decade, with the intention of telling his family that he’s dying. Upon his arrival he’s met with the principle shrieker, his eccentric mother (Nathalie Baye), and his cynical sister Suzanne (Léa Seydoux »

Berlinale: Ad Vitam to Produce Bruni Tedeschi Pic, Acquires Lelio’s ‘Fantastic Woman’ (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin– Ad Vitam, one of France’s leading independent distribution companies, is set to produce Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s “Les estivants,” the actress-turned-director’s follow-up to “A Castle in Italy” (pictured above) which competed at Cannes

Launched in 1998 by Gregory Gajos, Arthur Hallereau and Alexandra Henochsberg, Ad Vitam has been raising its profile and scope lately with the launch of sales outfit Alma Cinema in partnership with Charles Gillibert’s production company CG Cinema (“Mustang,” “Personal Shopper”).

Although Ad Vitam is usually mainly involved in distribution and co-production, it boarded Tedeschi’s project as a full-on producer because of Henochsberg’s close relationship with Tedeschi. A popular actress in Europe, Tedeschi recently starred in Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” which played at Directors’ Fortnight in cannes, and Bruno Dumont’s “Slack Bay,” a competition entry at Cannes in 2016.

Budgeted at 6 million euros ($6.8 million), “Les estivants” was written by Bruni Tedeschi »
