Crash & Learn: Thierry de Peretti Buckles Up for “À son image”

A pandemic hiccup might have slightly pushed back the production start date (we mentioned the project when it got a leg up via the the Arte France cinema folks) but it appears that Thierry de Peretti is indeed setting up shop for his fourth feature film – due to begin lensing this September. À son image will be filmed in Ajaccio (in Corsica), France and will likely still unfold in Bosnia. Peretti who has been at Cannes with his first and second features in Apaches (2013) and A Violent Life (2017) is working from a project that is based on Jérôme Ferrari’s novel of the same name. The story (which was co-written by the filmmaker and Jeanne Aptekman) revolves around several moments in the life of Antonia – a photographer who’s the victim of a road traffic accident in Corsica – and her closest friends. These moments intersect with the most violent events in the island’s political history, spanning the 1980s and the early 21st century. So we can expect the next piece of major casting news to be this lead.
