Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #185. André Téchiné’s Les âmes soeurs

Les âmes soeurs

For his thirtieth feature film, the great André Téchiné filmed in two seasonal time frames (in June of ’21 and the following winter of southwestern France’s Ariège region) for a drama (or possible melodrama) that sounds nestled in human relations. Formerly known as Les Pieds sur Terre, Téchiné collected Noémie Merlant and Benjamin Voisin who topline with supporting players of Audrey Dana and André Marcon on board. Les âmes soeurs (aka Soul Mates) could make for a strong competition slot bid at the Berlinale before its late March domestic release at home.

Gist: A lieutenant from a contingent of the French army stationed in Mali, who is seriously injured when his armoured vehicle explodes.

Release Date/Prediction: Berlinale is a strong possibility.
