The sister filmmaker tandem behind 17 filles (2011) and Voir du pays (2016) have put a bow on their latest feature film. The Cineuropa folks got the exclusive that Delphine and Muriel Coulin have lassoed Vincent Lindon and Benjamin Voisin (a breakout in Summer of 85) for À la hauteur. Felicita Films’ Marie Guillaumond and Curiosa Films’ Olivier Delbosc are producing the film with Frédéric Noirhomme (his last project Il pleut dans la maison was featured in the Critics’ Week this past May) as cinematographer. Expect this to be in the running for a Cannes showing next year as the Coulins have been there with their first two films — Critics’ Week and Un Certain Regard.
A book to film project based on the novel What You Need from the Night by Laurent Petitmangin, this tells a family story rooted in Lorraine, about a railway-worker father (Lindon) and his two sons, following the death of their mother.
