Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #169. Daniel Hoesl’s Veni Vidi Vici

Veni Vidi Vici

After checking in with the powerful elite with the ’20 docu Davos, Daniel Hoesl moved into a screenplay that is not that far removed. Working with a satire template on his third fic feature – his latest (a Les Arcs Film Festival WIP winner) is about an Austrian billionaire family with a penchant for hunting. Hoesl once again reteams with cinematographer Gerald Kerkletz on what was formerly titled “Vikinger” but now goes by the more aptly title of Veni Vidi Vici. Produced by Ulrich Seidl, this stars Laurence Rupp, Ursina Lardi, Dominik Warta, Johanna Orsini, and filmmaker Markus Schleinzer. Production took place last June in Vienna. Hoesl’s Soldier Jane (2013) premiered at Sundance and Rotterdam (picking up the Tiger Award) while his sophomore feature Winwin (2016) also premiered at Rotterdam.

Gist: Viktoria and Amon Maynard lead an almost perfect life with their children. Successful with their businesses, they are immeasurably rich. The world is at your feet, there is no risk.

Release Date/Prediction: We’re including this in our Cannes Un Certain Regard predictions.
