by Anne Feuillère
12/05/2005 - With the Cannes Film Festival, the new issue summary of Cinergie is reviewing matters of all Belgian films at Cannes. There are actually a few of them since on top of the Dardenne Brothers there are a few developing co-productions, short-lengths films, and scripts. Moreover, Cinergie proposes several shot interviews : with Inès Rabadan who is postproducing her feature film Belhorizon, an encounter with Vincent Lannoo whose second full-length film Ordinary Men is actually in production, the sequel of the imposing file devoted by Cinergie to digital with the shot interview of the cinematographer Louis-Philippe Capelle and an interview of his associate, Paul Englebert, within the brand new production company HoverLord .
Cinergie also looks at the new DVD Toto le héros with a tough eye by Jaco Van Dormael in another shot interview, whereas Louis Henriot, "who created several retrospectives and a few festivals such as Le court en dit long (13th edition from May 30th to June 4th), the film sector’s mainspring of the Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles of Paris " has a tight-shot. The issue then explores three short-length films (Oh la la ! by Céline Novel, Alice et moi by Micha Wald and La Paille et la poutre by Eric Lacroix) and two of their feature films La dernière s(c)ène by Boris Lehman, " Jonas Mekas’s Belgian brother" ( as the presentation of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris used to describe it during a retrospective of 80 of his films in 2003). Not to forget, Olivier Smolders’ new book Nuit Noire has been published by Les Impressions Nouvelles and the new Cinergie focus for Cineuropa is to be released in June on our two sites.
