Laying Brick: Robin Campillo to Shoot “Enzo” this Month

The passing of the torch was confirmed around Cannes, and rather than what might have been an August shoot, Les Films de Pierre producer Marie-Ange Luciani and filmmaker Robin Campillo are moving full steam ahead on Enzo – the project that Laurent Cantet has been prepping before his passing. Cineuropa confirms that the film will move into production this month with youngsters Eloy Pohu and Maksym Slivinskyi heading the drama along with supporting players Pierfrancesco Favino and Elodie Bouchez. The project was co-written by long-time friends Campillo and Cantet will be filming in La Ciotat (southern tip port city of France) and Toulon with cinematographer Jeanne Lapoirie on board. Campillo’s fourth feature Red Island, receives its U.S release on August 16th via the Film Movement folks.

The drama centers on the titular 16-year-old protagonist, who works as an apprentice mason in La Ciotat. Encouraged by his father to pursue higher education, he has left the comfortable yet stifling environment of his family home to gain life experience on construction sites alongside his Ukrainian colleague, Vlad.
