Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2013: #67. Francois Ozon’s Jeune et Jolie

Jeune et Jolie

Director/Writer: François Ozon
Producer(s): Mandarin Cinéma’s Eric and Nicolas Altmayer
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Marine Vacth, Géraldine Pailhas, Frédéric Pierrot, Fantin Ravat, Nathalie Richard, Charlotte Rampling

I often mention how François Ozon (and Michael Winterbottom) are the most prolific filmmakers of the past two decades, and what I like best about the pair is that they often deviate from their previous films. Falling into the comedy genre, his 14th film sees model-turned-actress Marine Vacth (Klapisch’s Ma part du Gâteau) in the lead and will once again have the participation of Charlotte Rampling of Swimming Pool fame – Ozon’s 2003 film.

Gist: This is about a young woman who becomes a prostitute for pleasure.

Release Date: Filming began in mid 2012, so without any mentions of a showing at the Berlin Film Festival, we think this either hits Cannes or Venice.
