Paris Rdv: Vincent Garenq talks true-crime drama 'Kalinka'
Director discusses new crime-drama starring Daniel Auteuil, his passion for true stories and future projects

French director Vincent Garenq’s new film Kalinka, starring Daniel Auteuil as real-life French accountant André Bamberski who spent 30-years battling to put the German doctor who raped and killed his teenage daughter behind bars, was one of the buzz titles of this year’s Unifrance Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris over the weekend (Jan 14-18).

The film is based on Bamberski’s autobiographical Pour Que Justice Te Soit Rendue (So That You See Justice Done) detailing his fight for justice which began in July 1982 after his teenage daughter Kalinka was found dead in bed while on holiday with her mother Danielle and her second husband, a German doctor called Dieter Krombach.

A detail in the post-mortem that there were signs of injury to the girl’s genitals convinced Bamberski that his daughter had been raped before her death and that

Netflix unveils first French original drama Marseille

Netflix taps into local cinema talent for political drama set against backdrop of France’s third largest city.

Netflix has greenlit its first French original series, a political drama set entitled Marseille, set against the backdrop of the southern French port city due to hit screens at the end of 2015.

The eight-part series, described as “a tale of power, corruption and redemption”, revolves around a city election between the long-time mayor Robert Taro and a younger ambitious candidate.

Netflix’s announcement comes on the eve of its highly anticipated arrival in France – a move that prompted alarm in some parts of the local film and TV industry because it is expected to put pressure on the country’s highly regulated release windows and audiovisual financing system.

“Marseille is an ambitious, diabolically smart, fictitious exploration of local politics in one of the world’s most vibrant and fascinating cities.” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

Johnny Depp And Vanessa Paradis Sing A Song Together

Johnny Depp And Vanessa Paradis Sing A Song Together
Off the beaten path, this year has been all about the Gainsbourgs, with a film and album for father Serge and a film and album for daughter Charlotte. Said album for Serge is a tribute called From Gainsbourg To Lulu, put together by none other than son Lulu. The album boasts a number of big names, featuring covers by Scarlett Johansson, Rufus Wainwright, Iggy Pop, and why we're here today -- a duet by husband and wife Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.

Depp (not a singer) and Paradis (actually a singer) sound super French on their rendition of "Ballade De Melodie Nelson." Paradis carries the weight while Depp chimes in occasionally to say "Melodie Nelson" in a breathy voice, which makes him sound either like a psycho killer or French lover, we're not sure.
