Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2013: #8. Catherine Breillat’s Abus De Faiblesse
Abus De Faiblesse
Director/Writer: Catherine Breillat
Producer(s): Flach Film’s Jean-Francois Le Petit & Iris Groups’ Nicolas Steil
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Isabelle Huppert and Cool Shen
Catherine Breillat’s 14th film project might be her most personal yet, simply because it is lifted from a true-life ordeal that she experienced first-hand with professional conman Christophe Rocancourt. Lucky for us, Breillat isn’t afraid of provocation or digging deep in her personal life for the sake of art – and along for the ride comes the bumpy combo of Isabelle Huppert and non-actor popular rapper Cool Shen. Check out Boyd van Hoeij’s just released set-visit article.
Gist: Huppert plays the Breillat-based character Maud, with rapper Kool Shen (formerly of NTM) playing the Rocancourt-esque character Vilko.
Release Date: With production having begun in October,it appears that the Venice Film Festival is a more sound bet over Cannes.
