The Belgian-born producer heads Paris-based Les Films des Tournelles, which clocked up two hits with its latest productions: Riad Sattouf’s The French Kissers [trailer] (selected in the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, 907,000 admissions in France and Best Debut Film César 2010; to be released in Germany on July 1) and Mona Achache’s The Hedgehog [trailer] (841,000 admissions in France).
Les Films des Tournelles, which is developing new projects by the two aforementioned filmmakers as well as Nadine Labaki’s forthcoming film, also co-produced Italian director Saverio Costanzo’s The Solitude of Prime Numbers , which may be unveiled at the Venice Film Festival.
