Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #194. Flora Lau’s Luz


Stuck in what feels like a Terrence Malick post-production purgatory abyss, Hong Kong filmmaker Flora Lau‘s Luz has been a yearly no-show since 2019 and we still have zero clue as to the status of this project. Having preemed her debut film Bends in 2013 in the Un Certain Regard section, we are now at the decade between projects point here. A France-Chinese co-production, the highly anticipated sophomore project has Isabelle Huppert toplining with Sandrine Pinna and Xiaodong Guo as supporting players. Benjamín Echazarreta was the cinematographer on the project here – he has since worked on Memory House and Blanquita. Lau produced Luz alongside Sinn Gi, Joseph Chan and Stephen Lam.

Gist: The French language drama sees a woman (Huppert) who contends with a computer-generated avatar of herself.

Release Date/Prediction: A SWAT team led by Thierry Frémaux needs to pay Lau a visit and grab this for a return to the Croisette.
