Anders Danielsen Lie (’22 July’): It’s ‘impossible to understand’ Norway’s worst terrorist, even when playing him [Exclusive Video Interview]
“It felt like a huge responsibility,” admits Anders Danielsen Lie about starring in “22 July.” Directed by Oscar nominee Paul Greengrass (“United 93”), this Netflix release recounts the horrifying true story of Norway’s worst attack since World War II, when 77 people were killed by right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik, who is played by Lie. The actor is a native of Norway, so he felt he had a duty to “create a truthful portrait.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Lie above.

On July 22, 2011, Breivik, radicalized by anti-immigrant and misogynist ideas, murdered 8 people by detonating a van bomb outside the government quarter in Oslo before shooting 69 others to death at a political youth summer camp on the island of Utøya. Embodying such an individual was a challenge for Lie because he’s “a very emotional person in real life,

Amos Gitai Set to Direct Period Drama About Doña Gracia Nasi (Exclusive)
Amos Gitai, one of Israel’s most influential directors who has “A Tramway in Jerusalem” and “A Letter to a Friend in Gaza” playing at Venice Film Festival, is set to direct “Doña Gracia,” a sprawling period drama about Gracia Mendes Nasi.

Although her legacy is not well-known, Doña Gracia was a heroic figure who escaped persecution in 16th century Lisbon and became a prominent figure in the politics of the Ottoman Empire as well as one of the wealthiest Jewish women of Renaissance Europe. She used her wealth to save hundreds of converted Jews from the Inquisition.

Gitai has been developing the project for four years with Marie José Sanselme, his co-writer on “Rabin, the Last Day,” “Disengagement” and “Free Zone,” among other films.

“‘Doña Gracia’ was an incredibly fierce and visionary woman who led an exceptional life,” said Gitai. “Not only did she escape persecution, she faced off

Cannes Review: ‘Rodin’ Doesn’t Do Justice to a Great Artist

It’s one thing to make a movie about an artist and his art; it is a whole other thing to make a movie about an artist mostly just doing his art. That is the central focus of Rodin, a film concerning the famed sculptor Auguste Rodin (Vincent Lindon) that all but sucks away the drama in favor of scenes of the artist creating his work. Some of these sequences do in fact work, especially when director Jacques Doillon is trying to recreate the time period when Rodin was struggling to make the sculpture of Balzac. Authorities aren’t happy that he has painted him as an overweight figure, which he was, and demand a skinnier version. The eureka moment is his ingenious idea of plastering a robe on the statue. It’s the film’s finest scene, making one feel as if they were in the room that day when that time-capsule-worthy moment happened.

Cannes 2017: Rodin review: Dir. Jacques Doillon (2017)

Rodin review: Jacques Doillon directs this really rather dull and uneventful biopic of legendary French artist Auguste Rodin in Rodin, making its way into official competition at Cannes 2017.

Rodin review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Festival de Cannes.

Rodin review

We open to 1880 Paris where the title card immediately informs us that Rodin has reached the age of 40, and has received his first state commission from the French government. He begins on ‘The Gates Of Hell’, a collection of figurines including the famous ‘The Kiss’ and ‘The Thinker’, some of his most famous work. It is at this time where he meets the Camille Claudel, a talented young woman, his student, who quickly becomes his assistant, and ultimately his mistress. The decade-spanning story, whittled down to just two very long hours, details Rodin’s shortcomings and unfulfillment with his work, notably his famous Balzac, a sculpture that wouldn’t gain respect during his lifetime,

Isabelle Huppert, Mariachi and a History Lesson: Cannes Celebrates Its 70th Year With a Lively Night

Isabelle Huppert, Mariachi and a History Lesson: Cannes Celebrates Its 70th Year With a Lively Night
The Cannes Film Festival aims to show great movies, but it also knows how to throw a good party. That much was evident late at night in the waning hours of a glitzy dinner on Tuesday night at Port Pierre Canto to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the festival, when Salma Hayek surprised guests with a mariachi band.

The Mexican film luminaries in the room — including “Three AmigosGuillermo Del Toro, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarriuto and Alfono Cuaron as well as actors Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal — all crowded around a single table to lead a boisterous crowd in numerous songs. They were joined by guests from all over the world, from directors Michel Hazanavicius and Paolo Sorrentino to Sony Pictures Classics co-president Michael Barker, 88-year-old French New Wave legend Agnes Varda and Hayek, who eventually led a conga line to the stage while shooting an iPhone video of the whole affair.

‘Rodin’ Cannes Review: It’s Got Art and Sex, But Where’s the Passion?

‘Rodin’ Cannes Review: It’s Got Art and Sex, But Where’s the Passion?
Some films come to Cannes as no-brainers, clearly deserving of their berth sight unseen. (Good or bad, this year’s work from Michael Haneke, Andrey Zvyagintsev, Todd Haynes and Ruben Ostlund probably fit in that category.) And some films come to Cannes and face a skeptical audience that wants to see proof that they belong on the Croisette. It’s safe to say that Jacques Doillon’s “Rodin” arrived at Cannes on Tuesday in the latter category. And at best, the honorable, old-fashioned biopic might skate by for being a throwback at a 70th anniversary festival that’s making a

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of the 2017 Cannes Competition

Above: Redoubtable by Michel Hazanavicius (France)It’s that time of year again: time for those of us who are not in Cannes for the next two weeks to live vicariously through Twitter (and of course Mubi’s always insightful coverage). For me, the first glimpse of the films that I am missing on the Croisette are the posters. Often rushed out as an afterthought to a film that is itself barely out of the editing room, Cannes posters are sometimes slapdash, often just serviceable. But there are always standouts, like The Handmaiden last year and The Lobster the year before that, both of which ended up among my favorite posters of the year.Say what you will about his previous foray into film history, but Michel Hazanavicius’s Redoubtable—about Jean-Luc Godard’s relationship with Anne Wiazemsky, set during the making of La chinoise and with Louis Garrel playing

Two of this year’s group have films playing at the festival.

The UK’s Chris Martin, Switzerland’s Ivan Madeo [pictured, left] and Poland’s Maria Blicharska [pictured, right] are among the 20 up-and-coming European producers to be selected for the 2017 edition of European Film Promotion’s (Efp) networking platform Producers On The Move, which takes place at Cannes Film Festival.

The official lineup for the 70th Cannes Film Festival, which will run from May 18–28, was announced April 13. While a few more screenings will undoubtably be added as we creep nearer to the festival, the selections announced feature a lot worth getting excited over — including, for the first time, two television shows (Twin Peaks and Top of the Lake) and a virtual reality film (Carne y Arena). Also, considering that The Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Beguiled are both in the main competition, there is, assuming equal probability, an 11.1% chance that a film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell will take home the top prize. Considering

The Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2017: A Rundown

The Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2017: A Rundown
The 2017 Cannes official selection is a mix of brainy competition auteurs, red-carpet star power, and the rarest breed — a handful of players who could return to North America as Oscar contenders.

Nicole Kidman will be stuffing her trunks with evening gowns, as she will need to walk the Palais steps at least four times: twice with Colin Farrell, for Cannes favorite Sofia Coppola‘s Civil War potboiler “The Beguiled” (Focus Features) and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (A24), both in Competition, and again for John Cameron Mitchell‘s midnighter “How to Talk with Girls at Parties” (A24) and a preview of Jane Campion‘s returning Sundance Channel series, “Top of the Lake: China Girl.” How the three films play in Cannes will determine if the Oscar perennial returns for another go-round.

Isabelle Huppert won the Cesar and was close — we think — to winning the Oscar for “Elle.
