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 »
