Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #63. Abdellatif Kechiche’s Mektoub My Love: Canto Tre

Mektoub My Love: Canto Tre

The pandemic and the servings of humble pie eaten after his Cannes 2019 premiere debacle means that while he might be a jerk of a person, Abdellatif Kechiche will have the opportunity to get out of movie jail. Both the second and third instalments of Mektoub My Love will indeed see the day of light and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t extremely curious. Technically this part of a quadrilogy with Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo not offering much to the promise of 2017’s Mektoub, My Love: Canto Uno. As the closing film – we don’t know what to expect but we imagine that Mektoub My Love: Canto Tre would zero in on select characters with a trajectory that is open-ended. Our money is on Mektoub My Love: Canto Duo offering a bit more depth. The brunt of a public outcry means the two films are unlikely candidates for Berlinale, Cannes or Venice selection.

Gist: This is the final chapter in the quadrilogy which began with Mektoub, My love: Canto Uno.

Release Date/Prediction: There’ll be some festival programmers who’ll be interested in both features.
