Apparently today is a big day for fans of foreign language feature films.

Trailers for two of the most anticipated foreign language features around have hit, both to some really interesting responses.

First off, Apple has given us the first trailer for the upcoming Francois Ozon film, POTICHE, and it’s quite a great little trailer. Starring Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu, the film follows a trophy wife who takes over the family business after her hubby suffers from a heart attack. Not the same type of material Ozon has been pushing out lately (his last film, HIDEAWAY, is not the most upbeat of films), but based on this trailer, POTICHE looks like one hell of a charming comedy. Opening on March 25, the film is close to taking its bow, but it has been playing to some relatively great buzz from those who have seen it, so here’s to hoping it can live up to the hype.

Finally, a much different film, a trailer for the upcoming Guillaume Canet directed film, LITTLE WHITE LIES has hit, and while it may be one of France’s highest grossing films in its native country, it looks to be one hell of a film as a whole. Starring Marion Cotillard, the film follows a group of friends who continue their yearly ritual vacation even in the face of a recent tragedy. Often compared to THE BIG CHILL (one of this writer’s favorite films), the trailer itself may not be a perfect one, but it does look absolutely compelling. Without a US distributor though, this may not see the light of day stateside anytime soon.
