  • Filmofilia
Bonjour Paris! February is quite interesting month when it comes to awards, and The Cesar Award is no exception.

So, let’s move to France for the national film award of France, first given out in 1975, with nominations that are selected by the members of the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma.

As we already guessed, Xavier BeauvoisDes hommes et des dieux, or if you prefer Of Gods and Men – movie that we previously talked about – took the top prize at France’s Cesar Awards.

And you all thought that Roman Polanski‘s The Ghost Writer will win? Ok, you were close, because the movie ended up taking home the most awards, including best adapted screenplay, best editing, best original score, and best director for Polanski himself, who was in attendance.

Looks that France loves Facebook, too, so David Fincher has a reason to be satisfied. He will

36th Cesar Awards: Of Gods and Men Wins Best Film, Polanski Win Best Director

48 hours before the Oscars, it was the French who feted the best in French cinema in 2010 with the 36th edition of the Cesar Awards. A trio of films claimed the most awards: Of Gods and Men (the Cannes winning film which was on the Oscar shortlist of nine but didn't make it into the final round) took the top award of Best Film and three in total tying up with Gainsbourg (which was picked up this week by Music Box Films) which won for Best Actor. The big winner of the night with four awards out of eight total noms was roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer which isn't in the French language but was a French production that won the filmmaker the Best Director award. Quentin "Vive le cinéma" Tarantino received an honorary award for his body of work -- not bad since he has another 40 years at least to double up on his output.

'Dragons' Dominate by Default

'Dragons' Dominate by Default
How to Train Your Dragon continued to do its thing over the weekend, and that was all it needed to return to the top spot. New releases The Back-Up Plan, The Losers and Oceans generated little interest, while Dragon's photo finish rival from last weekend, Kick-Ass, conked out. Overall business suffered as a result: it was by far the lowest-grossing weekend of 2010 and was down 13 percent from the same timeframe last year when Obsessed grabbed first place. Easing 23 percent to an estimated $15 million, How to Train Your Dragon again saw the smallest dip among nationwide releases, though it was actually steeper than its previous two weekends. Its total climbed to $178 million in 31 days, handily eclipsing Monsters Vs. Aliens through the same point. Dragon and Monsters had pretty much the same Spring release pattern and Monsters had a much bigger start, but Dragon ultimately resonated better with audiences. At its current pace,

Weekend Preview: 'The Losers,' 'The Back-Up Plan,' 'Oceans'

Weekend Preview: 'The Losers,' 'The Back-Up Plan,' 'Oceans'
This weekend, three new movies enter nationwide release, while How to Train Your Dragon and Kick-Ass are still in the mix. The Back-Up Plan arrives on approximately 3,600 screens at 3,280 sites, The Losers hits over 3,300 at 2,936 sites and Oceans flows onto around 1,250 screens at 1,206 sites. Each movie has at least one historical antecedent for the fourth weekend in April, which is typically not one of the busier times of the year. The most obvious antecedent is for Oceans. On this same weekend last year, Walt Disney Pictures opened Earth as a tie-in with what environmentalists label as "Earth Day," April 22. Burning off some steam with a Wednesday launch, it ranked fifth that weekend with $8.8 million at 1,804 locations, and it went on to become the third highest-grossing documentary on record with $32 million. Lacking the freshness of Earth's gimmick and seemingly offering highly similar content, it should be an uphill battle for Oceans to match Earth,

Reviews of The Cove And Oceans - Tokyo International Film Festival

  • Collider.com
Oceans” and “The Cove” took decidedly different paths on their way to being screened at the 2009 Tokyo International Film Festival (Here’s my first article on the Fest). “Oceans,” from French directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, a film which is at turns a breathtaking nature documentary and an exhortation to protect the beauty and majesty of the sea, was a natural choice to open the world’s only environmentally minded film festival. “The Cove,” on the other hand, almost did not make the cut despite its previous festival successes, including the Audience Award at Sundance. The film, directed by famed National Geographic photographer Louie Psihoyos, also stresses ecological responsibility but does so by exposing the shady slaughter of dolphins by fisherman in the Japanese fishing town of Taiji. Hit the jump to explore the deep blue.

Bigger FIsh to Fry for Tokyo Film Fest: Jacques Perrin's 'Oceans' is Opener

  • ioncinema
  • The 22nd Tokyo International Film Festival will open with the highly anticipated, long-gestating, documentary film from Jacques PerrinJacques Perrin
[/link] and Jacques Cluzaud. I believe principal photography commenced something like five years ago on Oceans. The doc was picked up earlier this year by Disneynature for a Spring 2010 release. Oceans is an ecological drama/documentary, filmed throughout the globe. Devoting over 70 trips to 50 places and 4 years it captures more than 100 species. Jacques Perrin (Le Peuple Migrateur) presents a tale of the mysterious ocean and the living with the latest cinematographic equipment, capable of taking miraculous images. The film penetrates the mysterious and fascinating marine world like never before.  Before they made even one announcement, the festival was at the center of controversy for not including Louie Psihoyos' The Cove. Jeffrey Wells (read here) was quick to point out how Alejandro González Iñárritu should consider stepping down from the head jury position,

Disneynature Announces Two New Films

Disneynature has begun production on two feature-length nature films, "Chimpanzee" and "African Cats: Kingdom of Courage." The new productions extend Disney's relationship with filmmakers Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield, who directed Disneynature's first release, "Earth," which bowed stateside in April and has grossed $29.1 million. "Cats" is being directed by Keith Scholey and Fothergill for worldwide release beginning in 2011. It focuses on two families of African cats and is being shot in Kenya's Masai Mara. "Chimpanzee" is being written and directed by Fothergill and Linfield for a worldwide theatrical rollout beginning in 2012. It will revolve around a group of chimps living in the rainforests of the Ivory Coast and Uganda. Disneynature's second release in the Us is "Oceans," from French co-directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, which is scheduled for release next year on Earth Day.

Cannes 2009 Producer's Patch: Pathé Pictures International

  • When the official announcement was made for the line-up – I was disappointed that Sylvain ChometSylvain Chomet
[/link]'s The Illusionist did not appear in the lineup. It was wishful thinking on my part that international sales rep Pathe Pictures International would have the animated film here – when I know all to well that a post production “label” for an animated film means: it will take a bit longer. Nonetheless, Pathe brought Jane Campion's Bright Star to the main competition and buyers will have the opportunity to get in on early on Julian Schnabel's Miral (this should be competing in Cannes in 2010) and what should be a packed Market screening showing for Neil Marshall's latest, Centurion.

Lemon of the Week: Disney and their Trailer for Ocean

  • Tied with the release of Earth, Disneynature have added the odd confection of a preview trailer for the long delayed Jacques PerrinJacques Perrin
[/link] documentary film. The trailer spends more than half of the allocated 120 seconds at making some sort of self-congratulatory link between the manufactured animal kingdom television documentary films of before, and have tied it to the feature that comes from the person who gave us Winged Migration. I find it odd that Disney feels the need to step in front of what will surely be as breathtaking a docu film as Perrin's first film, and with adage that 'nature writes its own screenplays' only reminds viewers of what not to expect in Oceans. This week's Lemon of the Week goes to the marketing folk from Disneynature who created such a lame trailer. ...

Disney's Oceans Gets a Trailer

Disneynature's "Earth" hit theaters today and now the studio has released a trailer for the follow-up movie called "Oceans." It is scheduled to hit theaters on August 8th, 2010. Plot: Nearly three-quarters of the earth's surface is covered by oceans. French co-directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud have set out to capture the full expanse of these waters that have played such a crucial and constant role in the history and sustenance of man. The deep and abundant oceans are places of great mysteries and dangers that this film will dare to explore. "Earth" has experienced a bit of controversy. The film is rated G, but features some disturbing scenes that kids may not be able to grasp or handle. While there is no blood or guts being splattered by the animals, everything else that leads up to that is featured in the movie. The goal, the director said, was to

Disney’s Oceans Trailer

  • FilmJunk
So I guess nature documentaries are back in vogue again. Ever since March of the Penguins made $127 million back in 2005 and won the Academy Award for Best Documentary, we've been seeing a lot of similar attempts to bring lavish landscapes and cute creatures to the big screen with varying success. Then Oprah re-ignited the craze by plugging the Planet Earth series on her show, and now Disney has launched Disneynature, a spin-off label dedicated solely to nature films. With their new film Earth hitting theatres today in order to coincide with Earth Day, Disney has also unveiled the trailer for their 2010 Earth Day release, Oceans. Yep, you better get used to it -- this is going to become an annual tradition. (I get the feeling that they may be missing the point of Earth Day by turning it into a big commercial venture, but what do I know?) The cool
