Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #125. Thomas Bidegain’s Soudain, seuls

Soudain, seuls

A thriller book-to-film adaptation that was originally meant to be worked in the English language and set to star Jake Gyllenhaal (The Sisters Brothers) and Vanessa Kirby and would then be transferred onto Gilles Lellouche and Melanie Thierry, Thomas Bidegain moved into production in September of last year in Iceland. A longtime scribe for Jacques Audiard’s films, Soudain, seuls (Suddenly) is Bidegain’s second feature following 2015’s Les Cowboys (which starred François Damiens) which was also produced by Tresor Films’ Alain Attal. We’re getting Palme d’Or winner Triangle of Sadness vibes with this true litmus relationship test.

Gist: Based on the Isabelle Autissier’s French-language novel Soudain Seuls, this follows a couple that must fight for survival after they become stranded on an island which was supposed to be their dream journey.

Release Date/Prediction: We see this as a gala TIFF world premiere screening.
