Arte France preps trio of films
Includes Lars von Trier horror picPARIS -- Arte France is bringing its co-production savvy across borders with three new international films from Lars von Trier, Angelo Cianci and Razvan Radulescu, the Franco-German pay TV group said Tuesday.
Von Trier will try his luck at the horror flick genre with "Anti-Christ," about a couple in an isolated cabin whose son disappears. The Slot Machine, Zentropa and ARTE/ZDF co-production will film in August and September in Germany.
In Radulescu's "Felicia plus que tout," co-directed by Melissa de Raaf, actress Ozana Oancea plays a young Romanian immigrant in the Netherlands dealing with family-related drama. "Felicia" will shoot in September and October in Bucarest.
Cianci's first film, "Ici," produced by Tu vas voir and father-son team Peter and Mathieu Kassovitz, is the story of an Maghreb family living in a rough Paris suburb subject to a hostage takeover which turns to absurd comedy.
