2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Axelle Ropert’s Tirez la Langue, Mademoiselle

#64. Axelle Ropert’s Tirez la Langue, Mademoiselle

Gist: Moving into the comedy/dramatic realm once again, this is about two very close brothers, both doctors in Paris. They are both passionate about their profession and together dedicate all their time to their patients, much to the detriment of their practice’s financial health. But one day, they meet a diabetic girl and fall in love with her mother. Both falling in love with the same woman will disrupt what had seemed to be such a solid relationship.

Prediction: Filming on Tirez la Langue, Mademoiselle took place around October of last year, and currently in post, this has been tagged with a summer release. Directors’ Fortnight showed her solid family portrait drama The Wolberg Family back in 2009, with Louise Bourgoin, and director-actor on board, this could squeeze its way into the Un Certain Regard section as to not conflict with her writing for another potential title in Tip Top for director Serge Bozon.
