Cesar Awards: Philippe Faucon’s Drama ‘Fatima’ Wins Best Film

26 February 2016 11:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Underscoring the diversity of this year’s Cesar lineup, Philippe Faucon’s “Fatima,” a tale of a Moroccan-born single mother, won best film, supporting actress and adapted screenplay at the 41st Cesar Awards ceremony which took place Friday night at the Chatelet Theater in Paris.

Although the big win for “Fatima” was unexpected, it resonates strongly with the current divide in France and sheds light on the second and third generations of North African immigrants in France. The country was hit by its deadliest ever terror attack in November and has seen the Far Right party gaining grounds in the run up to the 2017 presidential election.

A contemporary social drama loosely based on Fatima Elayoubi’s poems “Priere a la lune” (“Prayer to the Moon”), “Fatima” turns on a single mother who emigrated from Morocco and faces cultural challenges as well as prejudice in France, where she raises her »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #41. Gustave Kervern & Benoit Delepine’s Saint Amour

10 January 2016 3:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Saint Amour

Directors: Gustave Kervern, Benoit Delepine

Writers: Gustave Kervern, Benoit Delepine

Eclectic Belgian directing duo Gustave Kervern and Benoit Delepine have created a variety of bizarre scenarios together ever since their 2004 debut Aaltra. Notable titles also included 2010’s Mammuth starring Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Adjani, as well as their not-to-be-missed 2012 title Le Grand Soir, which won the top prize out of Directors’ Fortnight. In Venice 2014, they unveiled Near Death Experience while Kervern has been appearing on other French projects in front of the camera, opposite Catherine Deneuve in In the Courtyard (2014) as well as 2015’s delightfully offbeat Ashphalte from Samuel Benchetrit (unveiled out of competition at Cannes). They often recycle the same cast mates in their feature, and a few of them populate their next feature, Saint Amour (previously known as The Wine Route), with leads Depardieu and Benoit Poelvoorde (The Brand New Testament; 3 Hearts) as father and son »
