5 Rendez-vous Titles to Rendez-vous With
This one's the Opening Night film and stars Juliette Binoche (both Binoche and Denis will be here in person for the screening) and really, what more do you need to know? It is Claire Denis' new movie with Juliette Binoche. Oh how about the fact that Juli's co-star is Vincent Lindon, who just gave the performance of his life in Titane last year? HOW ABOUT THEM APPLES?
I contemplated not even writing these paragraphs describing why I want to see these five movies and just listing the titles, because all but one of them come down to the name of the director making the film. Sorry, I'm an auteurist slut! Honoré has a lifetime pass from me thanks to his gay romance Sorry Angel in 2018. I'lls ee all of his movies forever now! (That said no I still haven't watched Love Songs, I keep forgetting! It's a happy treat I am saving for myself, basically.)
Ozon always switches things up between films so this one appears to be very different from last year's extremely gay Summer of 85 -- that said I've seen 90% of Ozon's movies and pretty much loved every single one, even if they're the less gay ones.
And yes still speaking of directors I trust implicitly -- Audiard I trust more than any of these names I have listed so far. This is the man who made A Prophet and Rust and Bone and The Sisters Brothers, for god's sake. Just a long line of masterpieces in his wake.
Weirdly I was just tweeting about this movie!
Don't mind me I have just fallen down a Vincent Lacoste and Benjamin Voisin looking adorable together hole (anybody seen Lost Illusions, the movie they have been promoting?) pic.twitter.com/p3buoikfjM— Jason Adams (@JAMNPP) February 8, 2022
I didn't even know it would be playing the fest when I tweeted that, but sign me up! (Also a reader who's seen the film alerted me to lots of Voison --who you should recognize from the just-mentioned Summer of 85 -- nudity. As if I needed more reasons!)
Plots and all of that boring stuff can be perused down below, after the jump -- tickets for the fest will be on sale on the 15th for FLC members and the 18th for everybody else on their website. Can't wait to check these out!
