Exclusive: Clip for André Téchiné’s My New Friends (2024 Berlinale)

Today we feature an exclusive clip of veteran French filmmaker André Téchiné‘s latest oeuvre in My New Friends (aka Les Gens d’à côté) which will be unveiled in the Berlinale’s Panorama section. Formerly going by the title Dans le viseur or La révocation and filmed in late 2022, this drama stars Isabelle Huppert, Hafsia Herzi and Nahuel Perez Biscayart. Huppert plays the role of Lucie who is finds herself in a catch-22 type of situation where her moral linings clash with her ethical beliefs — it goes against her duties as a specialized technical and scientific police officer. Huppert and Herzi would actually re-team shortly after in Patricia Mazuy’s next directing gig, but here, as we see in the clip, we follow Herzi’s character confessing to Huppert’s Lucie that she is up to her neck with her better half not being able to walk in a straight line as it affects not only their relationship, but might have long term impact on their young daughter.
