Strife Sentence: Senez Presents Quietly Effective Domestic Drama

Director Guillaume Senez teams with writer Raphaëlle Desplechin for sophomore feature, Our Struggles, a quiet, unassuming domestic drama about a blue-collar dad left in the lurch. It’s a scenario we’ve seen countless times before, and yet, like his 2015 debut Keeper, Senez balances a fine line between kitchen-sink and human rights subtexts.

Sans any major dramatic outbursts, the simmering humanistic narrative of this French-Belgian co-production is kept afloat by a strong performance from Romain Duris in one of his finest dramatic leads in a decade.…

Watch: Nsfw Teaser Trailer For Mathieu Amalric's Cannes Contender 'La Chambre Bleue'

Is actor Mathieu Amalric becoming a Cannes staple as a director? He's making all the right movies -- in 2010 he made his first appearance on the Croisette as a director with "Tournée," winning Best Director and a Fipresci prize for his efforts. This year, he's returning with "La Chambre Bleue," this time shifted from Competition to Un Certain Regard, and it promises a fair bit of skin and sweat. Starring Amalric as well, alongside Léa Drucker, the film is based on the novel Georges Simenon, and it tracks the intermittent affair between two people that soon grows into something a bit more sinister. Here's the book synopsis from Amazon to give a bit more detail:  Vain, womanising Tony and passionate, manipulative Andree met eight times in eleven months in the blue room at the Hotel des Voyageurs for afternoons of abandoned love. For Tony the conversation that last time was just the casual,

BAMcinemaFEST 2011

Updated through 6/26.

"The golden age of New York moviegoing is now," argues Ao Scott in the New York Times. "Two events in the coming days offer confirmation of this hunch." Tonight "in Brooklyn the BAMcinemaFest opens with Weekend, Andrew Haigh's bracing, present-tense exploration of sex, intimacy and love, the first of 26 features that will play, along with 24 short films, over the next 10 days. And Friday is the official opening night of the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, a charming two-screen jewel box carved (by the architect David Rockwell) out of garage and office space at Lincoln Center." He touches on the Museum of the Moving Image and the reRun Gastropub Theater as well, before returning to BAMcinemaFEST: "Not everything in the lineup is quite so perfectly realized as Weekend, but the range and generosity of the sampling make it hard to go wrong. Even the misfires and train wrecks are interesting,

Interview: Mathieu Amalric

by Steve Dollar

Everyone's favorite French leading man, Mathieu Amalric, won the best director prize at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival for Tournée (also known as On Tour), an ambling backstage saga about an American burlesque troupe on the road in France, playing the creaky-theater circuit in a string of port towns as their manager Joachim (Amalric) sorts out his own personal drama. Many of the performers will be familiar to fans of the latter-day burlesque revival: Julie Atlas Muz, Kitten on the Keys, Dirty Martini, Mimi Le Meaux. They'll join Amalric for a screening and party as part of the third annual BAMcinemaFest's closing weekend. Earlier this week, Amalric spoke about his profound fascination with the ecdysiasts' art from Toronto, where he'd just arrived to begin shooting in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis.

Who Should Wear This to the Oscars?

Here's what Julie Atlas Muz who stars in Mathieu Amalric's burlesque film Tournée wore to the Césars  (aka the French Oscars) yesterday.

 

poll by twiigs.com

 

 

How much would you pay to see the uproar at the Oscars if some attendee wore something like that?

Celebrities just don't take enough chances on the red carpet. Like the chance to be arrested for indecent exposure. Live a little movie stars. Come on. No more simple black gowns. We better see something crazy tomorrow night. Who can save us from the boring fashion parade to come?

.p.s. catch up on Oscar posts if you've been slacking!

3 U.S. Features Vying for Best Foreign Film César

Three U.S. films are among the seven nominees for best foreign film in this year’s César Awards, France’s version of the Oscars. Meanwhile, American director Quentin Tarantino has been selected to receive an honorary award and will be at the Feb. 25 ceremony in Paris to accept it, it was announced Friday.

The three American films cited by the Académie des arts et techniques du cinema are Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” David Fincher’s “The Social Network” and Clint Eastwood’s “Invictus,” an Oscar contender in the States last year.

Xavier Beauvois’ “Of Gods and Men” (“Des hommes et des Dieux”) — not one of the nine films still in contention for the best foreign film Oscar — leads with 10 nominations, while Roman Polanski’s “The Ghost Writer” and Joann Sfar’s “Gainsbourg” (“Vie Héroïque”) are also nominated in multiple categories.

Presiding over this year’s awards is American actress and director Jodie Foster.

Quentin Tarantino to Receive Honorary César Award; The Social Network, Inception, and Invictus Nominated for Best Foreign Film

It’s going to be an American night at this year’s César Awards (France's Oscar equivalent).

The Golden Donkey Cannes 2010: The French Connection

"I was not angry since I came to France / Until this instant." 'Tis bard quote is inevitably uttered by the Ferroni Brigade, while suffering the Cannes juggernaut, usually sooner than later—often enough, in fact, during the opening movie. But this year it was somwehat different: Robin Hood, that turgid revisionist doodle by Sir Ridley ("the wrong") Scott, had been inflicted on most of the international press beforehand, so by the point it screened half-faded was the memory of a tradition besmirched, and, yes, that would stretch past the obvious reference point of Richard Lester's touching Robin and Marian (1976) to Mel Brooks' Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1991). After all the only, extremely dubious achievement of the wrong Scott's slick, humourless hodgepodge was that it even failed when it tried to make fun of the French. Inconceivable, but it probably helped its opening night selection ("irony"), thus helping to

Cannes 2010 Film Festival: Winners & Losers

Well, after about two weeks, the Cannes Film Festival has just come to a close, and the jury has come in with what they think are the best of the best from this year’s festival.

Jury head Tim Burton and company have come in, and it appears as though they’ve picked some interesting choices. The Palme d’Or went to Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s film Uncle Boonme Who Can Recall His Past Lives. The film beat out Xavier Beauvois’ Of God And Men, with the latter garnering the most buzz as a possible Best Foreign Film Oscar contender this year. Big names have taken home the top acting prizes, with Javier Bardem and Juliette Binoche taking home best actor and actress for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s polarizing Biutiful and Abbas Kiarostami’s beloved Certified Copy respectfully. The final big award was also quite a shocking pick, as Best Director

Cannes 2010: Best Director Surprise Win for Mathieu Amalric

I guess the merging styles and a willingness to test the boundaries of a conventional narrative was something the jury appreciated in Mathieu Amalric's Tournée (On Tour).

Despite not having cared about the quasy road trip, traveling Burlesque show, kudos all the same to the highly likable Amalric - who was perhaps the nights happiest winner! - I guess the merging styles and a willingness to test the boundaries of a conventional narrative was something the jury appreciated in Mathieu Amalric's Tournée (On Tour).

Thai Film 'Uncle Boonmee' Wins the Cannes 2010 Palme d'Or

Yep, that funky "Ghost Monkey" with red eyes seen above was the winner of the Palme d'Or this year. Well, sort of at least, as the very trippy Thai film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives won the coveted Golden Palm at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival. The awards were announced tonight and we have the full list below. The jury this year was led by Tim Burton and included Kate Beckinsale, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Alberto Barbera, Emmanuel Carrere, Benicio Del Toro, Victor Erice, Alexandre Desplat & Shekhar Kapur. I really wanted Iñárritu's Biutiful to win, but instead the one film that I walked out of is the one that won.
