Il regista Robert Guédiguian

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Although he very rarely works with performers outside of a the small circle of actors he has cast since the very beginning of his long career, Robert Guédiguian will try something completely different in Twist à Bamako, his 22nd feature (which will begin filming on 24 February). Featuring a totally different cast, the film will also be set in the 1960s and take place in Africa. The cast will be led by Alicia Da Luz Gomes, Stéphane Bak (well received in The Mercy of the Jungle [+leggi anche:

Written by Robert Guédiguian together with Gilles Taurand (winner of the Best Screenplay César award in 1995 and nominated six times more since; collaborating with the director for the 4th time), the script begins in Bamako, in 1960. Samba, a young socialist activist, meets Lara, fleeing a forced marriage imposed by her family. They meet in one of Bamako’s many dance clubs and swear never to leave each other. But Samba begins to oppose some of the decisions made by his higher-ups and things soon get out of control...

For the record, Robert Guédiguian was selected in competition in Cannes in 2002 with the film Marie-Jo and Her 2 Lovers, in Berlin in 2005 and 2008 with The Walker of the Champ de Mars and Lady Jane [+leggi anche:
