Anaïs Demoustier and Félix de Givry attract attention at Toronto
The Wire, the highly respected American web magazine linked to The Atlantic, recently offered up its verdict on the best performances at the TIFF. It presents a list of fifteen names that features stars such as Al Pacino, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo, but also includes two up-and-coming French actors.
According to the magazine's editorial writer Joe Reid, Anaïs Demoustier, who stars in Bird People by Pascale Ferran, and Félix de Givry, who stars in Eden by Mia Hansen-Løve, have earned their place among the fifteen best actors of this year's festival. He says that to watch Anaïs Demoustier in Bird People is "to see just how far an open face can take you." As for Félix de Givry, "He plays a character who could so easily fall into the trap of being a self-obsessed pretty-boy jackass, but de Givry gives him enough relatable earnestness and untainted joy for his music that you stay firmly on his side."
A fine tribute to these two young stars that adds to the very strong presence of French films at this year's TIFF, which showcased a record 41 French titles.
