Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #90. Arnaud Desplechin’s Three Memories of Childhood

Three Memories of Childhood

Director: Arnaud Desplechin // Writer: Arnaud Desplechin

While we weren’t the greatest fans of Desplechin’s last film, 2013’s Jimmy P., which played in the main competition at Cannes, we’re always up to see what the idiosyncratic director has to offer. Even when the results are mixed, he’s a director to keep track of. His latest pairs him once again with Amalric, and the feature revolves around Paul Dédalus, an anthropological researcher in his forties who is getting ready to go back to France. Images from his childhood start coming back to him… memories of Paris, Moscow and, above all, Roubaix.

Cast: Mathieu Amalric, Patrick D’Assaumcao.

Producers: Why Not Productions, France 2 Cinema

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available.

Release Date: Desplechin is clearly a Cannes favorite, and this title will be ready well in advance for the festival, so we expect to see this appear in the main competition slot.
