Written by Alain Guiraudie with the collaboration of Laurent Lunetta, the scenario takes us back to our time in Clermont-Ferrand. Médéric falls in love with Isadora, a 50-year-old prostitute, but she is married. While the city center is the scene of a terrorist attack, Selim, a young homeless man takes refuge in Médéric’s building, causing collective paranoia. Everything gets complicated in Médéric’s life, torn between his empathy for Sélim and his desire to live an affair with Isadora… Note that she is the very talented Helene Louvart who provided the direction of photography. Produced by Charles Gillibert for CG Cinema, Come, I will take you there which was co-produced by Arte France Cinéma, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Cinéma and Belgium’s Umedia, will be released in French cinemas on March 2 by Les Films du Losange.
In the post-production department of the EFM line-up shines the Franco-German co-production One good morning (One Fine Morning) from Mia Hansen-Løve (with Léa Seydoux headlining – read the article), already pre-sold in around twenty territories, but also the animated feature film Titina from the Norwegian Kajsa Naess (from a screenplay written by By carpenter, which sees the Italian aeronautical engineer Umberto Nobile – and his dog – and the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen embark together on the conquest of the North Pole, and produced by the Norwegians of Mikrofilm with the Belgians of Vivi Film).
On the side of the market projections point the horizon, the first feature film byEmilie Carpentier that Les Films du Losange will distribute in French cinemas on February 9, the award-winning Venetian White Building from Kavich Neang and Tom Medina [+lire aussi :

All without forgetting the titles in post-production like The Beast in the Jungle from Patric Chiha (with Anais Demoustier and Tom Mercier in the casting – article) and Rodeo from Lola Quivoron (article).
