From French funnyman, director Yann Moix, comes Cineman, an exorcise in meta-cinematic hi-jinx that I'm truly hoping will do a better job at bringing the laughs than Michel Gondry did with Be Kind Rewind. It definitely looks vibrant, playful and full of a ton of cinephilic-fun.
A bumbling professor of Mathematics at Montreuil-sous-Bois, Regis Deloux was suddenly able to travel in the film where he finally meets the woman of his dreams.
Besides the hilarious Franck Dubosc, Cineman also stars British actress Lucy Gordon who is playing Jane Birkin in the upcoming biopic, Serge Gainsbourg, vie héroïque. Gordon was sadly found dead in her Paris apartment back in May.
Cineman sees release in France on 28 October 2009.

British actress Lucy Gordon seemed to have it all. A role in Spider-Man 3 launched her into the big time, she had just wrapped a new movie, and she was living with a man she adored. With so many positive reasons to live, her friends and family were stunned when she was found hanged in an apparent suicide in her Paris apartment on May 20 - two days before what would have been her 29th birthday. "Nobody can understand why she did this horrible thing," the teenage daughter of her companion Jerome Almeras told the U.K.'s Mail on Sunday. »

Cannes -- Young British actress Lucy Gordon was found dead in her Paris apartment Wednesday, just two days before her 29th birthday, French police confirmed Thursday.
Police said Gordon hanged herself, though gave no motive for the tragedy.
Born in Oxford, young model-turned-actress Gordon has starred in more than a dozen films, including Cedric Klapisch's "The Russian Dolls," Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" and French title Yann Moix's "Cineman" soon to be released in Gaul.
"The film 'Gainsbourg (a heroic life)' owes a lot to Lucy Gordon's generosity, kindness and the immense talent," Sfar and the film's producers Marc du Pontavice and Didier Lupfer said in a press release sent out late Wednesday night in France.
The film will hit Gallic theaters next year. »

- When the official announcement was made for the line-up – I was disappointed that Sylvain Chomet'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.
