Top 150 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2020: #63. Serre moins fort – Mathieu Amalric

Serre moins fort

Actor/director Mathieu Amalric commences work on his eighth feature with Serre moins fort, a working title. The French-German co-production is being produced by Yael Fogiel and Laetitia Gonzalez, with support from the CNC. Vicky Krieps (of Phantom Thread, 2017 and upcoming titles Harry Haft and Bergman Island) and Arieh Worthalter (Girl, 2018) are starring. Amalric’s Public Affairs premiered in the 2003 Directors’ Fortnight lineup at Cannes, where he returned to compete in 2010 with On Tour, winning the FIPRESCI Prize and Best Director. His 2014 Georges Simenon adaptation The Blue Room went to Un Certain Regard, as did 2017’s Barbara, which won the Poetry of Cinema Award in the sidebar and took home nine Cesar awards, winning two, including Best Actress for Jeanne Balibar.

Gist: Amalric’s latest is adapted from the play Je reviens de loin by Claudine Galea and concerns the departure of a woman.

Release Date/Prediction: Amalric will be filming his latest in segments, with shoots planned for May, November and January. Cannes 2020 might be a slim shot based on the post-production period so Amalric may be headed to Venice for the first time in 2020.
