Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #23. Alain Guiraudie’s Viens je t’emmène

Viens je t’emmène (Nobody’s Hero)

Another project we thought had an outside chance at premiering in 2021 (and might have been passed on due to it being a comedy), Alain Guiraudie‘s Viens je t’emmène is now lined up for an early 2022 release. Produced by Charles Gillibert and written by Guiraudie and Laurent Lunetta, Guiraudie’s sixth feature is nowhere near in tone compared to Cannes Comp titles Stranger by the Lake (2013) or 2016’s Staying Vertical. Starring Noemie Lvovsky, Jean-Charles Clichet, and Ilies Kadri, this looks to be paranoia bliss.

Gist: Named for a song by Frances Gall, Christmas Eve is ruined by an act of terrorism in the city of Clermont-Ferrand. As the city descend into panic, thirtysomething Mederic falls in love with older prostitute Isadora.

Release Date/Prediction: This will receive a March 2022 release in France, so we’re thinking a showing at Berlin is possible.
