The Oscars, the Films and everything in between.
How rare it is to have a trailer for a film about a woman. Usually this would be flipped.
Thanks for posting Sasha, this looks great !! Yay Juliette Binoche! Brilliant actress. She was wonderful in Certified Copy recently.
I might be wrong but the soundtrack playing sure sounds like the amazing SIGUR ROS ! !!!
In order of preference, my favorite Binoches:
1. THREE COLORS: BLUE
3. THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
5. CODE UNKNOWN
7. SUMMER HOURS
8. THE LOVERS ON THE BRIDGE
And I’m sure GODZILLA will join the list once I see it.
Bryce, you don’t think she’s great in Copie Conforme/Certified Copy? I love her in that movie, but then again I have a positive bias when it comes to Kiarostami…:)
Saw this in Norway last Christmas (the director is Norwegian). Was a pretty substantial success in Norway, and I thought it was pretty good and intense, if not all that subtle at times. A solid B. Can be seen as kind of a female Hurt Locker perhaps?
Looks like a frontrunner for Best Actress!!!
“I have a positive bias when it comes to Kiarostami”
Total hit-and-miss for me, Julian.
CLOSE-UP: Utter mind-blown of a masterpiece that makes me grateful to live in the age of Kiarostami i.e., the triple frontier
TASTE OF CHERRY: Dreadful borefest aka the adult variety of Benadryl

[new (temp) alias]
I’ve no prior knowledge of this project at all. BUT with Juliette Binoche, the name representing a synonym for trustworthy thesp performance to me, as well as her name attached, it’s absolutely worth trying in my book.
You must be a huge fan or the world’s biggest cinephile. You’ve seen virtually everything’s she’s been in. I have to say she was great in THE ENGLISH PATIENT, but that movies puts me to sleep.
Redenzvous is directed by Techine.
My favorite Binoche performances:
Three colors Blue
The unbearable lightness of being
Lovers on the bridge
The English patient
Widows of St Pierre
Alice and Martin
Children of revolution
Horseman on the roof
Juliette Binoche is for me the greatest actress working nowadays (and she’s still absolutelly gorgeous).
This one look really emotional and beautifully shot. Hopefully It won’t be manipulative. But there is always be Julliete
