Written by the director, the script begins when, in the middle of a performance and in front of a stunned audience, an actor from the Comédie-Française is assassinated with poison. Martin, one of the actors in the play and a direct witness of the murder, is soon suspected by the police and chased by the mysterious organisation that ordered the crime. With the help of Claire, a graphic novel artist, Martin will try to solve the mystery of this violent death during a very eventful journey through Europe…  

Produced by Emmanuel Agneray (2009 Producer on the Move of the European Film Promotion and collaborator on all of Nicolas Pariser’s feature films) for Bizibi, Le parfum vert is co-produced by France 2 Cinéma and by Belgian company Versus Productions. Pre-bought by Canal+, Ciné+, France Télévisions, the RTBF and Proximus, the feature film has also benefited from the support of the Ile-de-France region and the Cofinova, Cineventure, Indéfilms, Palatine Etoile, SG Images and Cofimage Soficas. The eight weeks of filming will take place in the Paris region, in Brussels and in Budapest. French distribution will be handled by Diaphana and international sales by Orange Studio.

For the record, Bizibi currently has, in post-production, Wilderness Therapy by Édouard Deluc (read the article).
