Cannes Film Review: ‘The Summit’

24 May 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not just in its star, Ricardo Darín, that Argentinian director Santiago Mitre’s Un Certain Regard title “The Summit” seems built to evoke his countryman Juan José Campanella’s Oscar-winning “The Secret in their Eyes.” There is a similar enveloping silkiness to the filmmaking, which purrs along like a prowling, predatory animal, and a similar sense of place and noirish atmosphere. But the point of massive divergence for these two well-made genre thrillers is in how they end. “Eyes” closed with a series of high-wire revelations, each more enjoyably outlandish than the last; “The Summit” opts for a mid-stride ambiguity that leaves us scrambling to piece together our own resolution.

In fact, it’s possible that Mitre’s consummate craft, which has been building across his directorial career and culminated prior to this with his 2015 Critics’ Week prizewinner “Paulina,” works against him here. Elevated by strong performances »

Switzerland’s Filmcoopi, Greece’s Strada, and China’s Time In Portrait Ent. have also stepped up to the plate for the feature debut of Argentine directorial duo Cecilia Atán and Valeria Pivato, a romantic road movie which is “the feel-good story of a woman’s metamorphosis, the transformation of her life and vision of herself, made delicately step-by-step, about someone who was a bird in a cage and finds her freedom and rediscovers life,” Cité Films founder Raphael Berdugo said at Cannes.

“The Desert Bride” has received “serious interest” from the U. »

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

Charades, the Paris-sales banner recently launched by Carole Baraton, Yohann Comte and Pierre Mazars — former sales execs at Wild Bunch, Gaumont and StudioCanal, respectively — rolled into Cannes with its first slate, headlined by Mamoru Hosoda’s “Mirai” (working title), Peter Webber’s “Inna de Yard,” Juan Solanas’ “My Name Is Luz” and Devashish Makhija’s “Ajji.”

“Inna de Yard” is a documentary feature directed by Webber, who previously helmed “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” “Emperor” and “Hannibal Rising.” Laurent Baudens, Laurent Flahault and Gael Nouaille are producing the doc via Borsalino Prods.

The film also delivers a snapshot of everyday lives of these musicians, who reminisce about their collaborations with Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff. »

Cannes: France’s Cite Films, Memento Films Board ‘The Desert Bride’ (Exclusive)

11 May 2017 2:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Building the film’s status as one of Latin America’s buzzed-up Cannes titles, Raphael Berdugo’s Cite Films has made the unusual move – for Cite at least – of taking world sales rights to Cannes Un Certain Regard entry “The Desert Bride.”

A Paris-based production company, Cite Films generally only handles world sales on its own in-house co-productions.

In a second development which will raise the caché of “The Desert Bride,” Memento Films, one of France’s most prestigious upscale distributors, has boarded “The Desert Bride” as its French distributor.

Both events will only stoke buzz on a title which marks the feature debut of Argentine directorial duo Cecilia Atán and Valeria Pivato and a model of Argentine-Chile co-production. Produced by Atán, Pivato, Chile’s Ceibita Films and, from Argentina, Eva Lauria, Raul Aragon and El Perro en La Luna, “The Desert Bride” stars Paulina Garcia, a best actress »

Incaa chief steps down over ‘irregularities’ claims

14 April 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

April 17 Update: Argentinian directors group decry government intervention in affairs of autonomous body.

On Sunday the Dac – the group that represents Argentina’s directors – issued a strongly worded statement that took the government to task after it called for reform and transparency at the beleaguered national film institute Incaa.

Dac decried what it called the government’s “violent intervention of an autonomous body” and said it would defend the laws that gave rise to Incaa and other audiovisual entities.

For the record “violent” is a translation of the world “violenta” as it appears in the original Spanish-language Dac statement. There is no suggestion of any physically aggressive behaviour during this unfolding story.

April 14 Report: A media storm enveloped Argentina’s national film body Incaa this week after president Alejendro Cacetta stepped down in light of allegations of corruption and conflicts of interest.

Cacetta has denied any wrongdoing after culture minister Pablo Avelluto asked for resignation.

Incaa chief resigns as government report cites ‘irregularities’

14 April 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Alejandro Cacetta denies wrongdoing; film community stages protest.

A media storm enveloped Argentina’s national film body Incaa this week after president Alejendro Cacetta stepped down in light of allegations of corruption and conflicts of interest.

Cacetta sympathisers staged a protest at the Cine Gaumont cinema in Buenos Aires on Thursday that national newspaper Clarin said drew more than one thousand people.

The show of support followed the Incaa head’s departure on Wednesday after culture minister Pablo Avelluto called for his resignation when a department official presented files alleging among other things irregularities in the management of Incaa funds and the award of contracts to companies with strong Incaa ties.

Cacetta, who began his tenure at Incaa approximately 16 months ago, has denied any wrongdoing, telling national newspaper La Nacion: “My management was transparent.”

While government officials have been cautious not to level accusations at the former Patagonik Film Group CFO or particular individuals, the development »

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

7 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies, »

Mip: Spanish TV Producers Amp Up Original Drama

2 April 2017 10:52 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As streaming video on demand sweeps the world, the number of new TV operators in Spain looking for drama has risen sharply, led by the unprecedented bet of Telefonica paybox Movistar Plus on original series production.

Free-to-air broadcasters Atresmedia, Mediaset España and state-owned Rtve — the longtime driving forces of Spain’s TV fiction industry — now have a weighty rival.

Meanwhile, Spain’s limited size as a TV market is encouraging some producers, most prominently the giant Imagina-Mediapro — a partner on HBO’s drama “The Young Pope” — to seal co-production alliances with international players.

Bringing to the table a €70 million ($75 million) annual investment in original TV fiction, Movistar Plus is launching its first four original series in October. They are “La Zona,” from the Sanchez-Cabezudo brothers, and Alberto Rodríguez’s “La Peste,” both thrillers; melodrama “Velvet Colección”; and Enrique Lopez-Lavigne’s comedy “Verguenza.” Some 10 new releases will arrive in 2018.

Netflix has also commissioned its first original TV »

Paulina Garcia’s ‘The Desert Bride’ Tops Toulouse’s Films in Progress

25 March 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“The Desert Bride,” an Argentine second-chance drama from first-time helmers starring Berlinale Best Actress winner Paulina Garcia (“Gloria”), took both big prizes at the 31st Films in Progress which wrapped at France’s Toulouse Cinelatino Fest on Friday.

A gateway to big fest selection, so major arthouse or crossover sales agent pick-ups, Films in Progress also saw plaudits for two conflictive family dramas, Argentine cause-celebre based “Marilyn,” from Martin Rodriguez Redondo, and “Jasmines in Lidice,” directed by Venezuela’s Ruben Sierra Salles.

The 31st Films in Progress also brought international recognition for a new production axis emerging in the southernmost parts of South America between Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, benefitting from both public-sector bilateral co-production funds and the fast-consolidating relations between top art-house producers in the region.

Europe Is King in Best Foreign-Language Film Category — How Does the Rest of the World Stack Up?

5 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

The greatest thing about the best foreign-language film category is the recognition of works from all around the world. Throughout the years, movies made outside the United States of America have gotten the recognition they deserve thanks to the implementation of this specific award. With the 2017 Oscars right around the corner, let’s take a look back at the distribution of nominations and wins across the seven continents that make up this big world we inhabit.

This year’s best foreign-language film contenders are: Toni Erdmann (Germany), The Salesman (Iran), Land of Mine (Denmark), A Man Called Ove (Sweden), Paradise (Russia), The King’s Choice (Norway), My Life as a Zucchini (Switzerland), It’s Only the End of the World (Canada), and Tanna (Australia). This site’s namesake, The Hollywood’s Scott Feinberg, lists the first five of those as frontrunners and the other four as major threats. »
