CANNES FILM FESTIVAL: It’s been three years since Michel Hazanavicius captured the hearts of Oscar voters and won Best Picture with his silent film, The Artist. The film won 5 Academy Awards including Best Director for the French filmmaker, and Best Actor for Jean Dujardin.
At the Cannes Film Festival, his newest film The Search, has garnered mixed reception from some of the nation’s top critics and today we have the international trailer for you. The film stars Academy Award nominee Berenice Bejo (also Hazanavicius’ wife) and Academy Award nominee Annette Bening, and tells the story of a woman who works for a non-governmental organization (NGO), who forms a special relationship with a young boy in war-torn Chechnya.
The film is slated for a 2014 release and is still seeking a North American distributor.
