French cinema announces its Cesar Awards
The 32nd Cesar Awards ceremony saw two feature films of very different genres sweeping up the majority of prizes: Lady Chatterley by Pascale Ferran and Ne le dis à personne (Tell No One) by Guillaume Canet.
Lady Chatterley picked up 5 awards: Best Film, Best Actress for Marina Hands, Best Screen Adaptation of a Novel, Best Cinematography, and Best Costume Design.
Ne le dis à personne (Tell No One) garnered a Best Director Cesar for Canet, Best Actor for François Cluzet, and also the Cesar Awards for Best Music and Best Editing.
The other Cesars were spread out rather fairly among the nomination list’s hot contenders: Indigènes (Days of Glory) won the Cesar for Best Screenplay, Mélanie Laurent was voted Most Promising Actress and Kad Merad awarded Best Supporting Actor for their performances in Je vais bien, ne t’en fais pas, and Valérie Lemercier carried off the Best Supporting Actress honor for Fauteuils d’orchestre (Orchestra Seats aka Avenue Montaigne). The Cesar for Best Sound went to Quand j’étais chanteur (The Singer), and Best Production Design to OSS 117, Le Caire: nid d'espions (OSS 117: Cairo – Nest of Spies). Je vous trouve très beau (You Are So Beautiful) by Isabelle Mergault received the Cesar for Best First Feature. Last but not least, Malik Zidi was voted Most Promising Actor for his role in Les amitiés maléfiques (Poison Friends), and Marilyne Canto’s Fais de beaux rêves claimed the Best Short Film prize.
