Sarà l’attesissimo Annette di Leos Carax, con Marion Cotillard, Adam Driver e Simon Helberg ad aprire il 74mo Festival di Cannes, forse, il 6 luglio prossimo.
A distanza di nove anni dall’epocale Holy Motors Carax torna sulla Croisette con il suo primo film girato in inglese.
Set in contemporary Los Angeles, Annette tells the story of Henry, a stand-up comedian with a fierce sense of humor and Ann, a singer of international renown. In the spotlight, they are the perfect couple, healthy, happy, and glamourous. The birth of their first child, Annette, a mysterious girl with an exceptional destiny, will change their lives.
E’ solo il sesto film di Carax in una carriera cominciata con Boy Meets Girl nel 1984.
“Every Leos Carax film is an event. And this one delivers on its promises! Annette is the gift that lovers of cinema, music and culture were hoping for, one that we have been yearning for during the past year,” ha ricordato Pierre Lescure, Presidente del Festival.
mentre Fremaux ha affermato: “We couldn’t have dreamed of a more beautiful reunion with cinema and the silver screen, in the Palais des Festivals where films come to assert their splendor. Carax’s cinema is an expression of these powerful gestures, these mysterious alchemies that makes the secret of cinema’s modernity and eternity.”
