), the story centres around Judith who is leading a double life divided between Switzerland and France. On the one hand, there’s Abdel, with whom she’s raising a little girl, and on the other, there’s Melvil, with whom she has two older boys. Slowly and dangerously, this fragile equilibrium, composed of lies, secrets and endless comings and goings, begins to tip. Trapped in her own web, Judith chooses to carry on regardless, forging blindly onwards up a slippery, vertiginous slope… It’s a story which won itself a special award at France’s Screenplay Awards (Prix du Scénario) - formerly the Sopadin Awards - in 2017.

Produced by Justin Taurand on behalf of the Parisian firm Les Films du Bélier (who previously teamed up with the filmmaker on his earlier work The Sinkholes), Madeleine Collins is co-produced by Swiss group Close Up Films and Belgium’s Frakas Productions. Pre-purchased by Canal+, Ciné+ and RTS, the feature film is also supported by Eurimages, the Hauts-de-France region (Pictanovo) and Cinéforom, to name a few. Shooting will commence on 26 September, scheduled to end on 15 November, and will mainly unfold in the Hauts-de-France and Ile-de-France regions. French distribution will be managed by UFO Distribution and Paname Distribution (who will partner up for the occasion), while international sales are in the hands of Charades.

The afore-mentioned Les Films du Bélier, the young, independent production company who took home the IFCIC Award in 2017, are set to release Frank Beauvais’ documentary Just Don’t Think I’ll Scream [+leggi anche:
