Calling all Wes Anderson fans! The filmmaker is back with a brand-new movie expected like the messiah, The French Dispatch, out on October 27, 2021 in French theaters. A movie following an American newspaper editorial board, The French Dispatch, based in France in the little and fictional town called Ennui-sur-Blasé. It follows stories, shaped like chapters, of different columns that made History between the 40s and the 70s.
Moving on to the cast, Wes Anderson hit hard: Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson, Adrian Brody, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz, Jason Schwartzman, Benicio del Toro, Timothée Chalamet, Live Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton… A five-star casting complete with several French actors such as Léa Seydoux, Lyna Khoudri, Guillaume Gallienne, Mathieu Amalric, Cécile de France, Hippolyte Girardot and even Félix Moati.
Note that the movie was shot in November 2018 in Angoulême. And while waiting for the movie to be released, here is the latest trailer!
The French Dispatch is about a collection of stories from the latest issue of an American magazine published in a fictional French town in the 20th century.
Wes Anderson delivers a movie as beautiful as spellbinding offering what makes the very charm of his oh-so different style. Sets between real and cardboard cut-out, a dream casting, some dry wit, colorful characters... It has it all, perfectly balanced and perfectly timed, giving the movie a very special flavor very dear fo the movie maker's heart.
A genuine tribuet as well to the art of story-telling and famous news magazines such as The Time or The New Yorker, through truly incredible journalists each telling their report in this small French and fictional city, Ennui-sur-Blasé (Boredom-on-Blasé).
We love the way Anderson imagines his movie with real shots, or model, sometimes in slow motion, sometimes as an animated movie, for an odd mix, very amusing. We also love the comedians' performances, all very incredible, no matter if they appear shortly or more in the movie.
Anyway, this is a fantastic movie all Wes Anderson movie fans will want to discover, but not just them!
A movie opening from October 27, 2021.
