Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2021: #62. Aurélia Georges’ La Place d’une autre

La Place d’une autre (The Place of Another)

Director Aurélia Georges promises to be a breakout in 2021 with her third project La Place d’une autre (The Place of Another), produced by Olivier Père of ARTE France Cinema and Emmanuel Barraux of 31 Juin Films. The projects stars Lyna Khoudri (Cesar Winner for Most Promising Newcomer in 2020 for Papicha) , Sabine Azema, Maud Wyler and Laurent Poitrenaux. The film is a loose adaptation of the Wilkie Collins novel The New Magdalen, penned by Georges and Maud Ameline. Georges competed in the ACID lineup with her 2007 debut L’Homme qui marche, where she returned with sophomore feature La fille at le fleuve in 2014.

Gist: A period piece revolving around a stolen identity, Nelie, a nurse on the front in 1914, pretends to be Rose, a well-to-do young woman who died while under her care. Posing as Rose, she takes a job as a reader for the wealthy Madame de Lengwil (Azema) and finds herself living in the lap of luxury. Until Rose suddenly returns…

Release Date/Prediction: Georges shot her feature across November and December of 2020. Considering her inclusion in the ACID sidebar and the production and cast, we’re assuming she’ll premiere at Cannes 2021 in either Director’s Fortnight or Un Certain Regard.
