‘Rien à foutre’ selected for Critics’ Week At Cannes Film Festival

Rien à foutre, Emmanuel Marre and Julie Lecoustre’s first feature film, was selected for Critics’ Week, the parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival, Wallonie Bruxelles Images announced on Monday.

Produced by Wrong Men, with the support of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation Cinema and Audiovisual Center, the film follows Cassandre, 26, a flight attendant for a low-cost company. Living from day to day, she goes on flights and parties without tomorrow, faithful to her nickname Tinder: Carpe Diem. An existence without ties, in the form of a headlong rush, which apparently fills her. Until some mishap forces him to reconnect with the world.

Cassandre is played by actress Adèle Exarchopoulos (La Vie d’Adèle, Mandibules). At his side are in particular Alexandre Perrier and the young Belgian actress Mara Taquin (Hors normes, Ennemi public).

Emmanuel Marre, a former student of the Institut des arts de diffusion (IAD), has directed several short and medium-length films which have had very successful festival careers in recent years: Le Petit Chevalier (2011), Le Film de l’été (2017) and especially D’un château l’autre which won the Pardino d’or for best short film at the Locarno Film Festival in 2018, recalls Wallonie Bruxelles Images.

His passage to feature film is done in pairs, with Julie Lecoustre, the script and the production being signed with four hands, underlines the official agency for the promotion of the audio-visual of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation abroad, specifying that Julie Lecoustre had also co-authored D’un château l’autre.

The Cannes Film Festival, canceled last year due to the pandemic and usually held in May, will run exceptionally from July 6 to 17. This is its 74th edition.
