Lingering Summer: Yellow Veil Pictures Swims Over to Charlotte Le Bon’s “Falcon Lake”

The distrib behind Gaspar Noé’s Lux Æterna, the re-issue of Fabrice Du Welz’s Calvaire and upcoming Ashkal by Youssef Chebbi have landed the breakout Charlotte Le Bon debut from this year’s Directors’ Fortnight. After important premieres at Deauville and TIFF (it was just released domestically in Canada), Variety reports that Yellow Veil Pictures will showcase Falcon Lake in 2023. The actress turned filmmaker worked on 35mm and used a backdrop that was already familiar to her. Here is our review:

“Mixed in with the sounds of the cicadas and lakeside lay of the land, in the graphic novel adaptation of Une soeur by Bastien Vivès we find a highly rousing discourse on sufferance, sexuality and the exploration of self and power dynamics by way of the gaze. Both brutal and kind portrait on adolescence, with an assured gripping aesthetic handle, Falcon Lake stokes the matters of the heart with genre elements making certain that no one is left unscathed.”
