Just hours from now, we’ll have the list of films that will play during this year’s Cannes Film Festival. In the meantime, we know exactly what will end it.
The festival announced its closing night film, the last film from late director Claude Miller, a piece entitled THERESE D. Starring Audrey Tautou, THERESE D is based on a Franois Mauriac novel about a young woman who marries a wealthy man only to become bored. She then attempts to poison him. Yup, family-friendly comedy right there.
Joking aside, the director is beloved on the Croisette, and sadly I have not made my way through his now cemented filmography. Currently, three of his films are available on Netflix, so that will be changing soon. Closing Cannes is a great honor for a beloved filmmaker who has left us far too soon.
