EXCLUSIVE: We can reveal the good-looking first trailer for Jacques Audiard’s anticipated Cannes Film Festival movie Paris, 13th District (Les Olympiades), which debuts this week on the Croisette.
Shot in the French capital during the pandemic, expectations are high for the French-language black and white drama and we’ve seen some impressive footage out of the market. Yesterday we revealed a first clip.
The feature follows Emilie, Camille, Nora and Amber — four young adults who are friends and sometimes lovers. The project showcases exciting new talent including Lucie Zhang, Makita Samba and Jehnny Beth, as well as Noémie Merlan, who starred opposite Adele Haenel in Portrait Of A Lady On Fire.
The pic is based on New Yorker cartoonist Adrian Tomine’s Killing And Dying, a collection of graphic short stories. Producers are Audiard and Valérie Schermann through their Paris-based banner Page 114.
Playtime has sold the film well across the world including to IFC Films for the U.S. and Curzon for the UK. Memento is releasing in France.
Audiard is of course the director of acclaimed movies including A Prophet, Rust And Bone, and Palme d’Or winner Dheepan. Paris, 13th District marks his follow-up to The Sisters Brothers, the western starring Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Riz Ahmed and Jake Gyllenhaal.
