Un silence

Working at approximately a film per every three years pace, Joachim Lafosse who last gave us the relationship drama The Restless (a Main Competition title at the tail-end of Cannes in 2021 starring Leila Bekhti and Damien Bonnard), turns to difficult abuse terrain for his tenth feature. Formerly titled “Le Fils de la loi” and co-written with Thomas Van Zuylen, the Belgian filmmaker enlisted Daniel Auteuil, Emmanuelle Devos, Larisa Faber and Salomé Dewaels for what will be a difficult film about the inability to speak out but also the power of remaining silent. Production on Un silence took place in August, and he reteamed with cinematographer DP Jean-François Hensgens.

Gist: This is about the stakes at hand when a victim reveals a crime from the past.

Release Date/Prediction: Either this is a Main Competition item for the Palme or hits the Directors’ Fortnight.
