César Nominations: Jacques Audiard’s ‘Sisters Brothers’ Rustles Up Nine – List

César Nominations: Jacques Audiard’s ‘Sisters Brothers’ Rustles Up Nine – List
France’s Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma unveiled its nominations for the César Awards this morning in Paris. The races for the country’s Oscar equivalent are led by Xavier Legrand’s feature debut Jusqu’à La Garde (Custody) and Gilles Lellouche’s Le Grand Bain (Sink Or Swim) with 10 mentions each. They are followed by Jacques Audiard’s English-language western, The Sisters Brothers, and Pierre Salvadori’s En Liberté! (The Trouble With You) with nine a piece. All four are in the Best Picture and Director categories.

There’s a noticeably lighter edge to the nominations this year with Le Grand Bain a sort of Full Monty à la française that sees a group of middle-aged men form a synchronized swimming team. The movie debuted out of competition in Cannes and became the 3rd highest grossing local title of 2018 with over 5M tickets sold.

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #7. Abdellatif Kechiche’s La blessure

La blessure

Director: Abdellatif Kechiche // Writer: Abdellatif Kechiche, Francois Begaudeau

Few auteurs have reached the heights of emotional realism in narrative cinema as has Tunisian born director Abdellatif Kechiche. Starting out as an actor (his last stint in front of the camera was in Jeff Stanzler’s 2005 American indie Sorry, Haters with Robin Wright), Kechiche’s 2000 debut, Poetical Refugee premiered in Venice and starred a host of faces we’ve seen frequently, including Sami Bouajila, Elodie Bouchez, and Aure Atika. His coming titles would prove Kechiche’s preference for non-professional and/or character actors, including the excellent 2005 title Games of Love and Chance, which won Kechiche the Cesar for Best Film, Screenplay, and Director, and would introduce us to actress Sara Forestier. He’d win Best Film, Director, and Screenplay again at the Cesars in 2007, along with several awards in Venice, including the Special Jury Prize for The Secret of the Grain,

Quentin Dupieux’s ‘Réalité’

Réalité

Written and directed by Quentin Dupieux

2014, France

Presented as part of the Temps O’s Fnc program, Réalité is reminiscent of great names of absurd oneiric cinema, the most obvious influence being David Lynch. The movie also alludes to French surrealism in cinema and novels, such as novelists Andre Breton or Boris Vian. Dupieux’s delightful and hilariously neurotic film producer Bob Marshall could have been in a Jacques Tati movie or Boris Vian’s L’écume des jours. The film’s overall absurdist yet calm atmosphere makes it a strong example of the movement.

The image is bright, sunny and yet has a particular color and ambiance to it that makes the line between reality, dreams, and other parallel realities blur. As they all blend in this same photography and the same music, Philip Glass’s hour long song “Music with Changing Parts”, puts doubt in our minds

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #115. Quentin Dupieux’s Realite

Realite

Director: Quentin Dupieux

Writer: Quentin Dupieux

Producer: Realitism Films’ Gregory Bernard

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Alain Chabat, Jon Heder, Elodie Bouchez, Jonathan Lambert

Swiftly churning out his bizarre and wildly entertaining films, we will supposedly get to see a bit of Dupieux in 2014. His latest, the hilarious Wrong Cops got very limited theatrical play in late December, 2013 (Los Angeles denizens had the lucky opportunity to see it courtesy of Cinefamily), but should see some expansion elsewhere. Otherwise, it was announced that Dupieux has filmed a secret project with Marilyn Manson which was inspired by their collaboration on Cops. But while details on that remain scant, we are happy to see another project due in 2014 starring Alain Chabat and Elodie Bouchez (who many arthouse devotees should recognize for a role in Andre Techine’s 1994 film Wild Reeds). Eric Wareheim is also in the cast, so we’re sure this will be strangely entertaining.

She has always been a fan of designer duds, and Salma Hayek got a first-hand look at the new Saint Laurent Menswear Fall/Winter 2014/15 goodies last night (January 19) in Paris, France.

Joined by her billionaire businessman husband Francois-Henri Pinault, the “Desperado” dame hammed it up for the paparazzi outside the Paris Fashion Week festivities.

Salma was the center of attention thanks to a dynamic two-piece navy suit teamed with a crisp white button-up shirt and snazzy necktie.

Inside, Ms. Hayek and Mr. Pinault were surrounded by industry bigwigs like Anna Wintour, Juliette Greco, Etienne Daho and Elodie Bouchez.

It revolves around three intertwining characters: an eight-year-old girl, called Réalité, who becomes obsessed with watching a mysterious VHS video tape she finds; Jason, a failed filmmaker in search of the perfect scream in a bid to get shady producer Bob on board his debut horror movie, and Denis, who makes his living as a TV host dressed in a rat

Day to Rejoice: Deneuve Is Today's TCM Star

Catherine Deneuve: Style, beauty, and talent on TCM tonight A day to rejoice on Turner Classic Movies: Catherine Deneuve, one of the few true Living Film Legends, is TCM’s "Summer Under the Stars" star today, August 12, 2013. Catherine Deneuve is not only one of the most beautiful film actresses ever, she’s also one of the very best. In fact, the more mature her looks, the more fascinating she has become. Though, admittedly, Deneuve has always been great to look at, and she has been a mesmerizing screen presence since at least the early ’80s. ‘The Umbrellas of Cherbourg’: One of the greatest movie musicals ever Right now, TCM is showing one of the greatest movie musicals ever made, Jacques Demy’s Palme d’Or winner The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964), in which a very blonde, very young, very pretty, and very dubbed Catherine Deneuve (singing voice by Danielle Licari

SFotD: ‘She Said, She Said’ Checks Its Baggage on the Brink of Divorce

Why Watch? Equally sharp and absurd, this short film from Stuart Blumberg features Marisa Tomei and Elodie Bouchez as a couple who are close to ending their marriage, David Wain as a high-fiving mediator, and a few ridiculous flashbacks. Each piece of their shared history that they fight over forces them to remember the full spectrum of their relationship while creating some very funny scenarios. Especially if you’re into Aubrey Plaza making “fox babies.” The dialogue is sly, and it’s often difficult to figure out whether a line is meant as an insult or flirtation, and the talent here delivers. It’s also sleek with smart visuals and seductive — both while sharing the calm power of generosity and when sliding a loose dress slowly up the back of its star’s legs. This comedy is a long, slow pour of whiskey with a smooth finish. What Will It Cost? About

Watch now! Marisa Tomei and Elodie Bouchez play a lesbian couple on the rocks in the sexy "She Said, She Said"

Tags: Marisa TomeiAubrey PlazaElodie BouchezIMDbfashion

According to our friends over at OneMoreLesbian.com, when film producer Stephanie Danan and screenwriter Justin Kern launched a line of luxe fashion essentials Co in 2011, they began presenting each new collection with a short film. In the film that accompanies the Co Spring 2013 collection, a lesbian couple (played by Marisa Tomei and Elodie Bouchez) on the verge of divorce enter mediation in an effort to split up their possessions. The film also features an appearance by Aubrey Plaza a lusty lesbian who puts the moves on Tomei at the dog park. None of my break ups ever looked this good. I must have been doing it wrong.

Would Plaza's amazing line about burrowing into the fox den work on you?

Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies

  • The Backlot
Brace yourselves. This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings. Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here at AfterElton.

But before we get to that, an introduction. A few weeks ago we asked AfterElton readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote. We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released. We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.

We also wanted to expand our list to 100 from the top 50 we had done previously. We figured there were finally enough quality gay films to justify the expansion. And we wanted to break out gay documentaries onto their own list (You'll find the

Four Lovers | DVD Review

Just a few notches above porn you’ll find Antony Cordier’s second feature, Four Lovers, an erotic French indie that premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2011, and details the sexual escapades of a pair of swapping married couples while never truly exposing any of their actual character. Instead of delving into the psychology behind open marriages, the history of how their relationships led to this dynamic, or the emotional turmoil that such events usual conjure, Cordier and writing partner Julie Peyr would rather linger on the naked sculpted bodies of its beautiful four leads without any real intention. Other than a few steamy scenes and a handful of intriguing character details, there is little holding this vacuous entanglement in one watchable piece.

The film begins with Rachel (Marina Foïs), a reticent boutique jeweler, being sweet talked by Vincent (Nicolas Duvauchelle), a tattooed web designer who was called in to work on her site,
