Le quai de Ouistreham

It’s been fifteen years since writer Emmanuel Carrère’s 2005 narrative debut La Moustache. Just as his own novel Limonov has been set for director Pawel Pawlikowski’s next project, Carrère has decided to adapt (alongside Helene Devynck) the non-fiction work by Florence Aubenas, Le quai de Ouistreham (Between Two Worlds), for his next project, securing Juliette Binoche as his lead. Produced by Olivier Delbosc, David Gauquie and Julien Deris, the project is lensed by Cesar nominee Patrick Blossier (Costa-Gavras’ 2002 Amen.). Carrère’s first feature, La Moustache, was adapted from his own novel and premiered at Cannes in Directors’ Fortnight, starring Vincent Lindon and Emmanuelle Devos.

Gist: Binoche stars as Marianne Winckler, a writer who lives as a job seeker for six months while spending time with other women operating between unstable periods of unemployment.

Release Date/Prediction: Carrère wrapped production in April of 2019. If he bypasses Berlin, we expect him to be a contender at Cannes 2020 for the main competition.
