Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #185. Vincent Garenq’s Justice or Chaos

Justice or Chaos

Director: Vincent Gaenq
Writer: Vincent Garenq
Producers: Nord Ouest Films’ Christophe Rossignon and Philip Boëffard
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Gilles Lelouche, Charles Berling, Florence Loiret Caille

His 2011 sophomore feature Guilty made the pedophilic accusations of The Hunt seem like a cake walk (and is also based on a true story). The acclaimed reception of that film sees him returning to real life injustice, snagging more French notables like Lelouche and Berling to head his cast. If it’s anything like his last film, look forward to a distraught and distressing reenactment.

Gist: A look at the Clearstream case, a politico-financial conspiracy that shook the French Republic in the years 2000.

Release Date: Filming took place last August, so we’re assuming that due to the attention his last film received as well as the subject matter should see this as a prime candidate for a Cannes sidebar, perhaps Directors’ Fortnight or an Out of Competition slot.
