The 9 most anticipated French films of 2022
French cinema, more alive than ever, promises us great emotions this year. Here are 9 movies we can’t wait to see.
A radiant girl (January 26)
Sandrine Kiberlain goes behind the camera to make his first feature film. It tells the story of Irene, an aspiring actress whose youth and love life prove to be troubled. Selected for Critics’ Week, this director’s first success features the divine Rebecca Marder (of the Comédie-Française) in the role of the amateur actress with an upset destiny.
Another World (February 16)
Stephane Brize here concludes his social trilogy, after The measure of man and In war. Vincent Lindon and Sandrine Kiberlain star alongside the upcoming French hopeful, Antoine Bajon, in this drama. The film follows a family bruised by the pressure of work that takes everything away.
Simone Veil, a woman of the century (February 23)
After exploring the life of Edith Piaf and Grace Kelly, Olivier Dahan is interested in another icon: Simone Veil. This repeatedly postponed biopic promises to be both grandiose and intimate. He embraces the life of this great Frenchwoman, from the concentration camps to the National Assembly, where she forever changed the status of women by decriminalizing abortion. To embody the feminist icon, the director chose the actress Elsa Zylberstein who, as you can already see from the first shots of the film, interprets one of his most beautiful roles.
