What the hell ever happened to Angel, anyway? As far as I know, it never came to Seattle. Or at least it hasn't yet.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Francois Ozon's New Film 'Je Suis Femme' Gearing Up With Romain Duris To Star
via The Playlist

Francois Ozon's “Young and Beautiful” screened at TIFF this week (we reviewed it when it premiered at Cannes), its first appearance on this side of the Atlantic: but the hardest working man in whatever-the-French-is-for-Hollywood is just days away from starting his next shoot, in keeping with his (roughly) movie-a-year schedule.

Close as it may be to shooting, we nevertheless know next to nothing about “Je suis femme.” We know who's in it—Romain Duris, arguably the best French actor of the moment (“The Beat That My Heart Skipped,” “The Big Picture,” various terrible rom-coms which unfortunately seem to be the only films of his that get a release outside France), backed up by Raphael Personnaz (“Anna Karenina”) and the excellent Anais Demoustier (“Time of the Wolf,” “Therese Desqueyroux”).

So, it's a good cast, but it's still next to impossible to tell what the film's going to be about, given the cryptic title and Ozon's immensely varied back catalog, which includes campy musicals like “8 Women,” overlooked English-language melodrama (“Angel”), and tougher stuff about teenaged sexuality, into which category fall films like “Swimming Pool” and the aforementioned “Young and Beautiful.” It has to be said that the quality of Ozon's work can vary as much as the content, too, but with a cast like this, “Je suis femme” seems hopeful.

Toronto: François Ozon’s ‘The New Girlfriend’ Goes To Cohen Media Group
via Deadline



After making its world premiere in Toronto, François Ozon’s The New Girlfriend has inked U.S. distribution with Cohen Media Group. The Hitchcockian romance is adapted from the story by British suspense writer Ruth Rendell about Claire (Anaïs Demoustier), who discovers a surprising secret about her late best friend’s husband (Romain Duris) that tests the boundaries of sexual and gender identity. French company Mandarin Cinema produced the pic from the prolific Ozon (In The House, Swimming Pool, Under The Sand). CMG EVP John Kochman and Films Distribution co-founder Nicolas Brigaud Robert negotiated the deal. The New Girlfriend won the Sebastian 2014 Award last week at the San Sebastian Film Festival, where it screened in competition.

François Ozon To Direct ‘Double Lover’ Next
via The Playlist

The French filmmaker has been working steadily, releasing nearly a film each year, since his debut “Sitcom” eighteen years ago. And with his latest “Frantz” barely off the festival circuit, Ozon is gearing up to go behind the camera again.

Cineuropa reveals he’ll next be directing “Double Lover.” Dardennes Brothers regular Jeremie Renier (“The Unknown Girl,” “St. Laurent,” “The Kid With A Bike“) and Marine Vacth (“Young & Beautiful“) will star in the story that follows the relationship that develops between a depressed young woman and her therapist, but changes after they move into together, and she discovers a secret from his past.
