Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #81. Katell Quillévéré’s Le temps d’aimer
Le temps d’aimer
Having just completed the television docu project Le monde de demain, it would appear that Katell Quillévéré is currently on location and in the research phase for what could be her biggest project to date. Slated for a spring shoot, her fourth feature Le temps d’aimer landed the likes of Anaïs Demoustier and Vincent Lacoste – both would be tending bar in a WWII project set in ’47. Workhorse scribe Gilles Taurand (he co-penned Quillévéré’s third feature in 2016’s Heal the Living) co-wrote the project which is backed by production companies such as Les Films du Bélier, Les Films Pelléas and Frakas Productions. Quillévéré’s first pair of films played on the Croisette in Cannes – 2010’s Love Like Poison and 2013’s Suzanne.
Gist: Inspired by the story of Quillévéré’s own grandmother, who had a brief love affair with a German officer during WWII which she kept secret all her life. The movie spans 20 years in the life of this woman and revolves around her relationship with her husband and son.
Release Date/Prediction: The Venice Film Festival would be the only option left on the table if this is somehow readied for the Fall.
