2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Djinn Carrenard’s Making Love

#62. Djinn Carrenard’s Making Love

Gist: Filmed on the outskirts of Paris, Faire l’amour is about a mother who leaves prison in search of her daughter and about a handicap artist in search of inspiration.

Prediction: No ink has been spilled on this site with concerns to this DIY filmmaker whose debut film Donoma (it won the prestigious Prix Louis-Delluc for Best Film) cost about the price of lunch at the Croisette’s Carlton hotel. We don’t often talk about the other Cannes sidebar – but he premiered his debut film in 2010 at the (ACID) sidebar. Prod. co Realitism Films is backing the project and they have been relatively successful bringing new stuff to the sidebars – with a pair from Quentin Dupieux. Best suited for he Directors’ Fortnight, this could go as high up in the festival as the Un Certain Regard section.
