Cannes 2012 to close with Claude Miller’s THERESE D

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.

About Joshua Brunsting

Born in the tiny Michigan city known as Holland, and raised in the even smaller city known as Saugatuck, I have been a film geek for the majority of my life, and have known film was my passion ever since the final frame of THE LION KING. I’m a romantic with a thing for 60’s pop music (preferably French), John Keats poems, and an even bigger thing for film noir. Currently a Journalism Major at Grand Valley State University, I am using my love of film, and my deathly, ninja-like, skill behind the keyboard to slowly take over the world. When I’m not writing about or watching film, I’m listening to music, particularly from the likes of TV on the Radio, Best Coast, and Semi Precious Weapons. I play the ukulele, and I also have a deep and intense love for Gustavo Santaolalla and Ennio Morricone, but then again, who doesn’t. I was drum major for my high school marching band for two years, I’m one of the four people who actually watched Dollhouse, and my favorite film of all time is Godard’s BREATHLESS. I’m a wannabe screenwriter, a wild thing, a nerd, a geek, and most importantly, I’m a lover of film. Oh, and I want to be Captain Planet when I grow up.
