Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #35. Bertrand Bonello’s Coma

Coma

It’ll likely be known as the “interim” project between regularly funded features 2019’s Zombi Child and the forthcoming La Bête, Bertrand Bonello (we did get a glimpse of Bonello in Ducournau’s Titane) conceived a micro-budgeted project about online behaviors, content consumption from the perspective/POV of a young female protagonist. Coma would have been shot in late in 2021 with the participation of actress Julia Faure.

Gist: This looks at the psyche of young girls, the discussions they have between them when consuming internet/youtube content from influencers, to discussing the abstract to relevant notions and banalities we find on online spaces.

Release Date/Prediction: Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight feels like the perfect home for this project.
