Watch the intense trailer for Audrey Diwan’s “The Event” film above, which won the Golden Lion at the last Venice Film Festival. It is expected in French theaters on November 24.
The Event: The 2021 Film
This year, the French directors are doing big noise internationally. After the Palme d’Or awarded to Julia Ducournau for Titanium, it’s Audrey Diwan who won the Golden Lion at the Mostra for The event. If the first has already been released in theaters, the second is expected on 24 november next.
The film is adapted from the eponymous autobiographical novel by Annie Ernaux published in 2000. It tells the story of Anne, a young woman who decides to have an abortion in France in the 1960s. At this time, abortion is not allowed, and she will have to fend for herself. Even if it means giving up his life there.
We had the chance to discover The event at the Venice Film Festival and it was a real shock. A film of immense mastery, dizzying, and visceral. Above all, it reveals a formidable actress: Anamaria Vartolomei, which is of all plans.
An intense trailer
Just over a month away from its theatrical release, Wild Bunch has unveiled the trailer. It highlights the strong themes of the film What are Anne’s war for an abortion, her desire for freedom, and the deep loneliness in which she finds herself. He also evokes certain particularly striking sequences of his abortion.
The event already ranks among the favorites of the next Caesar. We think in particular of the César of the best hope for Anamaria Vartolomei. He was also on the Oscar shortlist to represent France, but the committee preferred to submit Titanium.
It’s only a postponement for Audrey Diwan!
