Three films that performed particularly well at the recent European Film Festival (EUFF), hosted by Cinema Nouveau, will be fiven a wider release over the next few months. The films are French film 3 Hearts, which will be screened from Friday, the 29th of May, as well as Belgium’s Two Days, One Night and the Danish film, A Second Chance, both of which will be released during July this year.
3 Hearts is a romantic drama from veteran director Benoit Jacquot (Farewell, My Queen), and stars film legend Catherine Deneuve as Madame Berger, alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni and Benoit Poelvoorde. The film featured in the 2014 Venice International Film Festival.
A touching and tense drama about destiny, connections, and passion, 3 Hearts presents a headily romantic look at a classic love triangle with a hint of Greek tragedy. One night in provincial France, Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris. Instantly and intensely drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning in rare, almost choreographed, harmony. They talk about everything except themselves.
A thwarted plan for a second meeting in Paris sends each in a separate direction.
Two Days, One Night, the latest project taken on by the multi-award winning Dardenne brothers features French actress Marion Cotillard, who was nominated for the 2015 Best Actress Oscar. It releases at Cinema Nouveau on the 3rd of July.
A Second Chance, directed by Academy Award-winning Susanne Bier features Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lanister of Game of Thrones). It releases on the 17th of July.
