Cannes 2011: Bonello's 'L’Apollonide' Asks For Tolerance in Main Competition

28 April 2011 8:50 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

There are four French films in the Main Competition at this year's Cannes festival, a number that is generally seen as a set figure from year to year. That number can get a bit hazy when it comes to defining either a filmmaker's nationality or shooting locations or funding support, but we can at least count on four, French-born directors every year. There is no ambiguity with Bertrand Bonello's newest film House of Tolerance (L'Apollonide - souvenirs de la maison close), though, as the film was shot near Paris, and Bonello himself was actually born in Nice, a spitting distance from Cannes' shore. His career has stayed pretty closely tied to the festival since then, too; his last three films (out of five total) have all had their world premieres there, and while his film Tiresia was participating in the 2003 Competition - I kid you not - his first daughter was being born. »
