But there’s no point because we’re mortal

Exciting news, courtesy of Cineuropa by way of the Daily Notebook: Philippe Garrel’s new film, Un été brûlant, which stars Monica Bellucci and, of course, Garrel fils, begins shooting this week.

Being an unapologetic lover of pretty much all things Philippe Garrel, this is great, great news. I’m especially curious to see how Bellucci will do as the typically Garrelian “femme fatale/strung out/brooding/insecure actress” character.

With some directors, it’s actually a good thing that they make the same movie over and over again, forever retracing their steps, always finding something buried where it seemed that everything had already been unearthed.
