2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Serge Bozon’s Tip Top

#23. Serge Bozon’s Tip Top

Gist: Based on the novel by British author Bill James, Tip Top follows two female police inspectors from the police’s complaints and discipline branch as they investigate the death of an informant at a provincial police station. While they get along fine as partners, their private lives are very different. While man-hungry Sally (Sandrine Kiberlain) and the spousal abuser Esther (Isabelle Huppert) investigate, they are spied upon by reporting officer, Robert (Francois Damiens).

Prediction: Bozon’s followup to his well received 2007 debut, La France (which won the Prix Jean Vigo for Best French Film debut), will most likely end up in Un Certain Regard, and probably make this another multiple entry year for perennial legend Huppert.

Los Angeles based Nicholas Bell is's Chief Film Critic and covers film festivals such as Sundance, Berlin, Cannes and TIFF. He is part of the critic groups on Rotten Tomatoes, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA), the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS) and GALECA. His top 3 for 2021: France (Bruno Dumont), Passing (Rebecca Hall) and Nightmare Alley (Guillermo Del Toro). He was a jury member at the 2019 Cleveland International Film Festival.
