Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #41. Emmanuel Mouret’s Chronique d’une liaison passagère

Chronique d’une liaison passagère

We can speculate as to what the actual status of his last film’s selection in Cannes – 2020’s Les choses qu’on dit, les choses qu’on fait (aka Love Affair(s)) (read our review). One thing is certain – this three-dimensional twenty sides to one coin item was worthy of all the accolades that followed (the film received a treasure trove of César Awards noms). For Emmanuel Mouret‘s twelve feature film, matters of the heart are shared between thesps Sandrine Kiberlain and Vincent Macaigne who was in Love Affair(s). Chronique d’une liaison passagère went into production in the month of April and saw the filmmaker reteam with cinematographer Laurent Desmet. This is produced by Mouret’s longtime producer Moby Dick Films’ Frédéric Niedermayer.

Gist: Written by Emmanuel Mouret and Pierre Giraud, the story centres on a single mother and a married man who become lovers. They have agreed to only meet up for the purposes of a physical affair without any prospect of love, knowing full well their relationship would have no future. But they find themselves more and more surprised by how well they get on, their sense of complicity and the well-being they feel in each other’s company…

Release Date/Prediction: We’re going with another Cannes Film Festival selection – competition section.
