The latest offering by veteran filmmaker Volker Schlöndorff and the debut film by up-and-coming director Jeanne Herry will be vying for the jury's vote at the Shanghai - International Film Festival, to be held June 14 through 22, 2014.
This year's Shanghai - International Film Festival will take place from June 14 through 22, with a total of 15 films presented in its Official Competition. Two French productions are competing against each other for the Golden Goblet: Diplomacy (a co-production with Germany) by Volker Schlöndorff and Elle l'adore, the debut film by Jeanne Herry (photo).
Both films are, in their own ways, stories about a clash between two characters: in Schlöndorff's film, they are historical figures of Raoul Norling (André Dussollier) and General von Choltitz (Niels Arestrup), with the action set in the final moments of World War II.
Jeanne Herry's film portrays a psychological duel between an acclaimed singer (played by Laurent Lafitte) and one of his admirers (Sandrine Kiberlain), who puts her own life in jeopardy for him. This is an eagerly-anticipated film that is slated for release in France on September 24.
