Venice: Haut et Court Takes France on Competition Player ‘The Accused’ (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Haut et Court, the upscale producer-distributor of Palme d’Or winner “The Class” and company behind TV series smash hit “The Returned,” has moved smartly at this year’s Venice Festival to acquire French rights to Argentine Gonzalo Tobal’s competition contender “Acusada” (The Accused).

Warner Bros. which has rights to Latin America, will release the murder trial thriller in Argentina on Sept. 13.

Deals on Venice competition titles more often close at Toronto. Struck by Vicente Canales’ Film Factory Ent., the Venice deal with a prestige distributor in Europe’s biggest market for foreign-language movies giveS “Accused” an early tailwind as it segues to Toronto, to screen in its Contemporary World Cinema.

World premiering on the Lido on Tuesday, “The Accused” was described by Variety’s Jay Weissberg as “dependably handsome and pleasingly involving, a classic ‘did-she-or-didn’t-she’ murder scenario” [that] mostly focuses on the family dynamics of a young woman

Venice Film Review: ‘The Accused’
Dependably handsome and pleasingly involving, “The Accused” takes a classic “did-she-or-didn’t-she” murder scenario and mostly focuses on the family dynamics of a young woman accused of stabbing her best friend. Directed with assurance by Gonzalo Tobal (“Villegas”), the film hits the right buttons as it keeps audiences guessing the outcome, generating sympathy for all involved as the pressures of maintaining a façade for the media take their toll. Considerably more invested in criticizing the ways criminal cases are packaged and won in the court of public opinion than in systematically exploring the details of the murder, “The Accused” is solid, straightforward storytelling, certain to do well in Spanish-speaking territories and perhaps beyond.

It’s been two and a half years since 21-year-old Dolores Dreier (actress and pop star Lali Espósito) was first accused of murdering her best friend Camila Nieves after a drunken party, but only now is the

Exclusive Clip From Venice Competition Title ‘Acusada,’ Starring Lali Esposito, Leonardo Sbaraglia
Variety has been given an exclusive clip from crime drama “Acusada” (The Accused), which plays in competition at the Venice Film Festival. The Argentinian film, which is also screening at the Toronto Film Festival, stars Lali Esposito and Leonardo Sbaraglia, with Gael Garcia Bernal in a supporting role.

The film, directed by Gonzalo Tobal, centers on Dolores, a beautiful young woman who is charged with the murder of her best friend. As her loved ones fight to prove her innocence and the trial is about to begin, Dolores puts the entire strategy at risk.

Tobal says that he has been “captivated” by true crime stories. “I imagine obsessively how these stories are lived behind the scenes: what happens to a person when going through such an experience in which private and public affairs are mixed with so much violence,” he says.

The film is simultaneously a crime film and “a portrait of this question,

Almodóvar has started shooting his next film!

by Nathaniel R

Pedro Almodóvar has begun shooting his next film which is called Pain & Glory, so we can expect it in 2019. This will be Penelope Cruz's sixth collaboration with one of the world's greatest directors. Antonio Banderas will also co-star, marking his 7th Pedro film. Other Almodóvar regulars appearing will be Kiti Mánver (6th time) and Julieta Serrano (5th time). Though Pedro pictures are usually all about the actresses occassionally he throws gorgeous men into the mix. And this looks like one of those times. In addition to Banderas in what we assume will be the lead role (?), we've got: Raúl Arévalo from I'm So Excited, Leonardo Sbaraglia (Wild Tales) and Asier Etxeandia (Ma Ma).

The movie will also be the feature debut for a young popular singer named Rosalía. She posted the following picture on her instagram...

From Killing Eve to Lykkeland: the best shows at Canneseries

The inaugural TV competition threw up some interesting fare, from overall winner When Heroes Fly to Italian mob drama The Hunter and Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s excellent thriller

This Spanish drama starts in grizzly manner. The camera slowly reveals a double murder, involving a prostitute with links to the Chinese mob. Felix is film director Cesc Gay’s stab at big-budget TV and in the build up to its screening he has spoken about taking inspiration from Hitchcock’s back catalogue, especially the James Stewart era of suspense, thrills and murk. Felix doesn’t quite reach those heady heights but as Leonardo Sbaraglia in the lead role does manage to encapsulate the same fish-out-of-water feel that Stewart brought to Hitchcock’s best thrillers. Shot on location in Andorra, the setting is breathtaking and there’s a healthy dollop of humour amid the gruesome corpses. ITV is dealing with the international rights,

Spain’s Cesc Gay Drills Down on Canneseries Competition Entry ‘Félix’
On a plateau high up in Andorra’s Pyrenees, Felix (Leonardo Sbaraglia) gets out of a car There’s ice on the ground. But that does not explain entirely the way he walks, a near piteous shuffle, arms turned in, the gait of a meek man treating reality cautiously.

Felix is knocking 50. In Andorra, the mountain principality locked between France and Spain, he’s a fish-out-of-water, Argentine, a novelist, married, a father, though he hasn’t plucked up the courage to tell his son. The only thing that gets him out of bed in the morning is that he’s fallen in love, profoundly, with a Chinese woman (newcomer Mi Hoa), with whom he’s spent one night.

But she’s mixed up with the Chinese mafia. And she’s disappeared.

Viff 2017: At The End Of The Tunnel is Deliriously Entertaining [Review]

If you're looking for a double feature of low-brow heist movies that are far better than they have any right to be, you need look no further than Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky and Rodrigo Grande's Argentinean thriller At the End of the Tunnel.

Leonardo Sbaraglia stars as Joaquin, a paraplegic engineer who lives alone in a big house a couple of doors down from a bank. When he starts hearing noises from the house next door, he begins to use his endless amounts of free time to observe what the neighbours are up to and it quickly becomes apparent that they're planning a robbery via a tunnel that will come directly under his home. So Joaquin devises a plan to get to the bank first, steal some of the money and get away before the robbers ever figure out what happened except, [Continued ...]

Argentina’s Rodrigo Grande shopping pair of TV series
Exclusive: The director of At The End Of The Tunnel, which played in official selection recently at the Rome Film Festival, has been generating heat with two television projects.

Grande, a genre-hopping talent from Rosario whose well-received third film allowed him to flex his crime thriller muscles, is talking up Triple Frontera and Black Chronicles.

Like At The End Of The Tunnel (Al Final Del Túnel), both keep Grande in thriller territory. Triple Frontera also exhibits broader dramatic elements and takes place in the tri-border region of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay that is home to the Iguazú Falls and more ominously serves as a stomping ground for drug gangs and human traffickers.

“It’s about a family that’s looking for a son who’s lost and they find themselves in trouble,” Grande said of the Spanish-language property.

Black Chronicles is a psychological thriller about a cross-border smuggling service for people anxious to take flight.

Movie Review – Wild Tales (2014)

Wild Tales, 2014.

Written and Directed by Damián Szifron.

Starring Dario Grandinetti, Ricardo Darín, Erica Rivas, Diego Gentile, Leonardo Sbaraglia and Rita Cortese.

Synopsis:

A six standalone story anthology film that draws together troubled lives focused by violence, obsession and revenge…

Multi-story features can hold many a delight for all kinds of audiences. One draw back they often face is a kind of stark hit and miss ratio. See the V/H/S horror anthology films for proof of this. A combination of the good, the bad and the indifferent, these type of films can sometimes resemble something like a party punch of enticing yet ultimately sickening flavours.

Which is a long way of describing exactly what Wild Tales isn’t. What it is a beautiful collection of extremely funny, intelligent and fantastically realised short films all inspired by the act of revenge.

The fundamental problem most anthology films face is
