Anne Wiazemsky: a haunting, humane star who helped France discover itself

5 October 2017 7:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

More than just a foil for Jean-Luc Godard, Wiazemsky was a vital performer – and exhilarating writer – who brought desire and compassion to the screen

It’s an uncomfortable irony that, after her life has ended, Anne Wiazemsky risks being seen as a bystander in her own story. In Michel Hazanavicius’s enjoyable but somewhat facetious new film Redoubtable, Wiazemsky, played by Stacy Martin, is depicted as a wry observer in her marriage to Jean-Luc Godard – the straight woman to his tormented clown.

The film is set for a North American release in early 2018.

Cohen Media Group has acquired all North American distribution rights to Michel HazanaviciusJean-Luc Godard biopic Redoubtable.

John Kochman, executive vice president of Cohen Media Group, negotiated the agreement with Eva Diederix, head of sales for Paris-based Wild Bunch and CAA. 

Hazanavicius also wrote the film starring Louis Garrel as Godard and Stacy Martin as his second wife, Anne Wiazemsky that is currently in competition in Cannes.

A portrait of the artist as an angry middle-aged revolutionary, Redoubtable centres on the drama surrounding the shooting of Godard’s 1967 film, Le Chinoise, which starred his then-wife, Wiazemsky.

The romantic dramedy depicts the moment in Godard’s career when his commitment to revolutionary politics began to affect both his art and his personal life.

Cannes: Michel Hazanavicius’ Dramedy ‘Redoubtable’ Lands at Cohen Media

26 May 2017 7:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cohen Media Group has bought the North American rights to Michel Hazanavicius’ dramedy “Redoubtable” following its premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

The movie centers on iconic French director Jean-Luc Godard and the drama surrounding the shooting of his controversial 1967 film, “Le Chinoise,” which starred his then-wife, Anne Wiazemsky, and foreshadowed the global student protests that erupted in 1968.

Cohen Media Group plans a North American release in early 2018. The film stars Louis Garrel (“The Dreamers”) as Godard and Stacy Martin (“Nymphomaniac Vol. I” and “Vol. II”) as his second wife, Anne Wiazemsky.

Variety’s Owen Gleiberman gave the film a positive review, writing, “The surprise of ‘Redoubtable,’ which turns out to be a lightly audacious and fascinating movie (if not exactly one to warm your heart), is that though it is, in fact, structured around Godard’s marriage to Wiazemsky, its real subject is his life as an artist — in particular, »

‘Redoubtable’: Michel Hazanavicius’ Free-Wheeling Jean-Luc Godard Biopic Goes to Cohen Media — Cannes

26 May 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cohen Media Group has acquired the North American rights to Michel Hazanavicius’ free-wheeling Jean-Luc Godard biopic “Redoubtable,” which premiered late last week at the Cannes Film Festival.

Set in Paris 1967, “Redoubtable” follows Godard as he’s forced to re-examine himself after the reception of “La Chinoise,” his political film about young revolutionaries. Seeming to foreshadow France’s civil unrest in May of 1968, the director is shaken by the crisis and irrevocably changed by his own deep-rooted conflicts and misunderstandings. It is set for a North American release in early 2018.

Louis Garrel stars as Godard, with Stacy Martin as Anne Wiazemsky and Bérénice Bejo in a supporting role.

Cannes Film Review: ‘L’amant double’

26 May 2017 6:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It practically goes without saying that the French have different standards when it comes to kink. For example, when “50 Shades of Grey” opened overseas, the French barely raised an eyebrow, giving the tawdry sado-maso potboiler a light “forbidden to children under 12” rating, which meant that even young teens could see it.

Superior in nearly every regard — not least of all its pulse-racing perversions — director François Ozon’s “L’amant double” may as well be France’s answer to the “Cinquante nuances de Grey” phenomenon. And though nuance itself may be in short supply, Ozon has made a deliciously twisted erotic thriller in which a sexy young mental case (Marine Vacth, whom Ozon discovered with “Young & Beautiful”) gets mixed up with a pair of twin psychotherapists (both played by Jérémie Renier). One wants to marry her, while the other relies on more unconventional methods, forcing his damaged-goods patient to confront her »

Cannes Competition title 'Redoubtable' gets UK deal

25 May 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Wild Bunch sells Michel Hazanavicius’s Jean-Luc Godard biopic to UK.

Michel Hazanavicius’s Redoubtable, which premiered In Competition at Cannes Film Festival this week, has been picked up for UK distribution by Thunderbird Releasing.

The deal was negotiated by Kevin Chan, acquisitions manager at Thunderbird Releasing, and Emilie Serres of sales agent Wild Bunch.

The Jean-Luc Godard biopic stars Louis Garrel and Stacy Martin. It tells the story of revered French New Wave director Godard’s relationship with his wife Anne Wiazemsky.

Screen’s Cannes review of the film cited it as a “dazzlingly executed, hugely enjoyable act of stylistic homage” as well as a “poignant story of a dysfunctional marriage and an insightful recreation of a critical and contradiction-ridden period of modern French history”.

Chan commented: “Michel Hazanavicius turns the story of Jean-Luc Godard into a playful and honest film about politics, creativity and love, with extraordinary performances from Louis Garrel and Stacy Martin.

Cannes Review: ‘Redoubtable’ Offers a Playful Pastiche on the Re-Radicalization of Jean-Luc Godard

23 May 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s more Pastiche du Godard than Histoire(s) du Godard in Michel Hazanavicius’ Redoubtable and that’s not a bad thing. The director’s slight but surprisingly playful account of nouvelle vague maestro Jean-Luc Godard’s marriage to actress Anne Wiazemsky and his re-radicalization in the late 1960s has the potential to infuriate the more devout of Godard followers but there is plenty of good-hearted goading and creative homage to savor for the less pedantic fan.

Honing in on a tumultuous time for Godard and his adoptive France, Hazanavicius charts the relationship between him and Wiazemsky from beginning — on the set of his 1967 film La Chinoise — to end, taking in the 1968 protests and subsequent student movement (“I like the movement, not the students,” he later exclaims) as well as Godard’s own abstract departures from his previous filmmaking methods. It marks a welcome return for the director (Michel that »

Cannes 2017: The Redoutable review: Dir: Michel Hazanavicius (2017)

22 May 2017 8:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Redoutable review: Following a festival low with The Search back in 2014, Michel Hazanavicius returns for another pop at Cannes with a film based on French film god Jean-Luc Godard.

The Redoutable review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Festival de Cannes.

The Redoutable review

It has been six years since Michel Hazanavicius wowed the international film community with his Best Picture Oscar-winning silent movie The Artist back in 2011. With work on Les infidèles, a feature containing a series of short movies dropping the following year, and then war drama The Search arriving in 2014, the French director returns to the world of motion picture-themed narrative with this comedy-drama focusing on famed auteur Jean-Luc Godard in the time period of his second marriage 17-year old actress Anne Wiazemsky.

‘Redoubtable’: How Michel Hazanavicius and His Cast Found the Human in Often ‘Ridiculous’ Jean-Luc Godard — Cannes

21 May 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With his “Redoubtable,” Oscar-winning “The Artist” writer-director Michel Hazanavicius delivers another homage to period cinema, this time channeling Jean-Luc Godard’s moviemaking techniques as he portrays the cinema god during his late ’60s transition from groundbreaking film iconoclast to actual radical revolutionary. (Read Eric Kohn’s review here.)

American buyers are already sniffing around the feature film, one that could play well for older cinephiles who love Godard, an admittedly narrow niche.

French star Louis Garrel, who also appears in Arnaud Desplechin’s festival opener “Ismael’s Ghosts,” is superb as Godard and could land an acting prize. At the beginning, we get a glimpse of the director audiences are clearly expecting to see: confident, playful, and adoring his 19-year-old leading lady Anne Wiazemsky (Stacy Martin), gazing straight at her (and us) as the camera tracks by during the filming of “La Chinoise.”

Cannes Film Review: ‘Redoubtable’

20 May 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When it was announced that the Cannes Film Festival would show “Redoubtable,” a biographical drama about Jean-Luc Godard written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius (“The Artist”), and that the movie would focus on the relationship between Godard and his second wife, the actress Anne Wiazemsky (it’s based on her roman à clef), the interest of almost every cinephile heading into Cannes was piqued — though for reasons that crept into the realm of guilty pleasure. Godard himself wasted no time giving the movie his seal of approval by declaring it “a stupid idea.” And whether or not it was Hazanavicius’ intent to tweak the legendary New Wave director, one of the film’s central attractions was how flippant and impish and downright gossipy it sounded. A biopic! About Jean-Luc Godard’s love life! Given the holy pedestal on which a lot of people still place Godard, what could be less… »

Redoubtable review – Michel Hazanavicius’s Jean-Luc Godard biopic a pastiche without passion

20 May 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There’s plenty of knowing winks and stylistic homages to Godard’s work, but this study of a politicised and resentful Jlg doesn’t quite put you where it wants to

Michel Hazanavicius’s Redoubtable is a reasonably funny, moderately interesting movie, wearing its sprightly colourful pastiche like dry-cleaned retro couture. It is about Jean-Luc Godard – amusingly played by Louis Garrel – and his mic-drop moment in the late 60s. Nettled at the accusation that his cinema is selling out and neglecting the revolution promised by the Paris événements of 1968, and that he himself is becoming middle-aged and irrelevant, Godard rejects the French industry that had lionised him as a global celebrity and finally goes on a political and artistic journey way upriver, experimenting with communal cinema and radical film-making.

He also painfully breaks with his beautiful young wife Anne Wiazemsky, played by Stacy Martin, whose memoir One Year Later has »

‘Redoubtable’ Review: Jean-Luc Godard Is Reborn as Louis Garrel In Michel Hazanavicius’ Charming Romance — Cannes 2017

20 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As a filmmaker, Jean-Luc Godard is a brilliant enigma whose work offers more questions than answers. “Redoubtable” solves that challenge with an outside source: Adapted from actress-turned-author Anne Wiazemsky’s 2015 memoir, “Un An Apres” (“One Year Later”), this surprisingly endearing tragicomedy recounts her short-lived marriage to Godard and the moment in which the feisty filmmaker soured into the angry, outspoken political radical that became his post-’60s persona.

Written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius (“The Artist”), the movie toys with Godard’s own early filmmaking style in a wry effort to salute his legacy and demystify its evolution. Light and inoffensive, it trades the intellectual rigor of Godard’s work for fluffy sentiments, but never gets crass. Above all else, it succeeds at transforming cinephile trivia into a genuine crowdpleaser.

A welcome rebound after Hazanvicius’ misbegotten remake “The Search,” the new movie is a return to the colorful period details »

‘Artist’ Director Michel Hazanavicius on His Return to Cannes With ‘Redoubtable’ About Jean-Luc Godard

18 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After “The Artist” and “The Search,” French director Michel Hazanavicius is back at the Cannes Film Festival with “Redoubtable,” a comedy-laced romantic film chronicling the tumultuous relationship between iconic French director Jean-Luc Godard and Anne Wiazemsky, his wife from 1967-79, set against the backdrop of May 1968 riots in France.

The film, which toplines Louis Garrel (“Saint Laurent”), Stacy Martin (“Nymphomaniac: Vol. I”), Berenice Bejo (“The Past”) and Gregory Gadebois (“Angel & Tony”), is produced by Hazanavicius’ newly launched Paris-based production banner Les Compagnons du Cinema. StudioCanal will release the movie in France on Sept. 13 while Wild Bunch will be shopping the film in Cannes.

Rolling off a pair of successful spy comedies, “Oss 117: Lost in Rio” and “Oss 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies,” Hazanavicius broke through on the international scene with “The Artist,” a crowd-pleasing silent film, shot in black-and-white, about a struggling 1920s Hollywood star.

15 Cannes Film Festival Movies Were Shot on Film, Including ‘The Beguiled’

The celluloid comeback continues. Less than three years ago, Kodak was faced with the prospect of closing its film manufacturing plant in Rochester, New York, which also would have closed the doors on filmmakers’ ability to shoot on film. Now they’re back from the dead, and a number of Hollywood biggest blockbusters are being shot on film (hello, “Dunkirk”), and going analog has become a mark of prestige for award contenders and first-rate TV.
