Two Luxembourg co-productions were among the big winners in the “Un certain regard” section at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival.
Chiara Mastroianni won best performance for her role in the French comedy, “On a Magical Night” (“Chambre 212”), directed by Christophe Honoré. The film, co-produced by Bidibul Productions, follows Maria who leaves a 20-year marriage and checks in to room 212 in a hotel opposite her former apartment, from where she can obesrve her husband and reflect on her decision.
Oliver Laxe’s “Fire Will Come” took home a jury prize. Co-produced by Tarantula, “Fire Will Come” portrays Amador Coro, who is accused of arson and returns to his Galician village to try to pick up the pieces of his life, until another fire ravages the region.
Also in the running for the category “Un certain regard”--which seeks nontraditional vision and style, encouraging youth innovation and talent--was “The Swallows of Kabul”, co-produced by Melusine Productions.
The 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival took place on 14-25 May.
